First thank you for this! Incredibly helpful work here.

I'm having an issue when I move the SD card to a standalone pi 3 to use it's wifi and usb ports. The battery monitor runs the shutdown timer because there is no battery attached to the pi 3, I assume. And it shuts down my pi 3 in 60 seconds.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Disabling the battery monitor temporarily, or tricking the pi 3 to not send the low/no battery signal to the battery monitor script?

Much appreciated!

@ triticus
The best option would be to clone your image and write on another sd card. and remove the shutdown commands offcourse.

By any change will this work for the generic power charger (bangood/aliexpress)?
