Topic: Adafruit Battery

I just bought the battery that Adafruit sells for the Chumby Hacker Board.  I was disappointed that the battery didn't have the right connector to attach to the Hacker Board out of the box.  Also looking at the schematic it appears that the battery should have a temperature sensor attached to it for the Hacker Board's integral battery charger to work properly.  Does anyone know what the specifications of this temperature sensor are?  Looking at the schematic it appears to be a linear variable resistance type temperature sensor, but I don't know exactly what it's range and slope should be.  Any advice or suggestions from those who are in the know would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks,  Barry Mead
