Please enable CONFIG_HID_BATTERY_STRENGTH in kernel config by default.
It will give us support for battery info for wide range of HID devices (such as keyboard, mouses etc) via upower.

i've tested it with latest kernel (3.18.4-1-ARCH) and also with probably 10 previous versions, so it works well with my mouse (ThinkPad Bluetooth Laser Mouse).
This task depends upon
