Thanks. Yes, I have the bq27x00_battery driver is loaded:
lsmod | grep  bq27x00_battery
bq27x00_battery         6480  0
power_supply            6916  1 bq27x00_battery

I enabled it for purposes getting temperature as it discribed in the
page "http://wiki.maemo.org/Overclocking"
So, if I want use h-e-n I need to disable it?

Thanks for your answer.
But I was not strictly correct, I cannot mount it not only automatically
but also using mount-button in h-e-x. I can mount only via terminal
