> @RByers, did I read you right that you'd be supportive of limiting this API to the top-level browsing context assuming we'd add an appropriate policy directive for battery?

Top-level-only by default with an opt-in to enable frames to be granted access (just like vibrate) - yes that seems like a reasonable design to me. But we'd have to examine the [web compat implications](https://docs.google.com/document/u/2/d/1RC-pBBvsazYfCNNUSkPqAVpSpNJ96U8trhNkfV0v9fk/edit?usp=drive_web) to determine if we could make such a breaking change in Chrome (according to our [removal process](https://www.chromium.org/blink/removing-features)).
