If you charge your battery only when it's fully discharge, then it should
fix your problem a bit.  Mine does this:

Full charge -> XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
4/5         -> XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
3/5         -> XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
2/5         -> XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
1/5         -> XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (BEEP!)
