    Hello.
    I am running the SIM808 with Arduino Mega.
    Using AT+ECHARGE=1 to enable and AT&W to store charging a LiPo for backup.
    Doing AT+CBC always returns 0 for the first number, which means the LiPo is NOT charging.
    Checking AT+ECHARGE? returns 1.
    Shouldn´t AT+CBC return 1 in the beginning as well?
    Thanks for any help.
    Kind Regards,
    Jens
