Android :: Battery Will Not Stay Charged

Mar 31, 2010

I have had my Droid Eris for about 5 months now and have never had an issue with it until last night. When i plugged in my phone it shows that it is trying to charge but the percentage never goes up and slowly goes down. I have to turn the phone off and let it charge. When I do that for about 4 hours I turn it back on and the charge is only at 18% max. I need some help! I have uninstalled most of my programs and all of my most recent downloads.

HTC Incredible :: When Is Battery Fully Charged?

May 8, 2010

I've noticed that when charging my phone overnight, the light will turn green like it is fully charged, but if I unplug it, and plug it back in the light is red again and can take 10-20 minutes to turn green again. It seems the phone doesn't agree with what it considers for the battery to be fully charged. Anyone else have this issue? Is it a software thing?

HTC EVO 4G :: Battery Charged In Hero Now Works Great?

Jun 15, 2010

So my battery life was pretty poor, i'd be lucky to get 5-8 hours with minimal use and playing around with 4G on occasion. I tried my wives Hero battery to see if it made a difference.. it didn't seem to. So after her phone charged my battery up I swapped back. Now with normal use, playing music with it in the car, browsing the web on occasion, doing speed tests 3G/4G, couple hours of phone calls, some games, messing around with the LEDs as a flash light i'm still at 30% with 1 Day 4 hours unplugged. What the heck happened with her phone charging my battery!? What an improvement! I made no other changes on the phone besides that. I'll see if after my own phone charges the battery if this lasts or if perhaps there is an issue with the phone charging the battery. Pretty odd, just thought i'd share and see if anyone has any ideas what could be happening.

HTC EVO 4G :: Weird Battery Life Depending On How It's Charged / USB

Jul 18, 2010

We charge our EVO's (2 of them) each night using the wall plug and, of course, the light is green when we wake up. However, when we unplug them from the wall the battery charge percentage drops from 100% to about 92% within a few minutes without doing a thing. Now, at that time if I put it back on the charger but this time plugged into the USB on my computer it charges back to the 100% and then takes a long time to trickle down to the 92% (seriously, like 90 minutes including some usage in there). I know there's some differences in the 2 charging methods. The wall charger charges much faster. But, it appears to be giving a false sense of a complete charge. The USB takes much longer (almost like a trickle charge) but seems to last longer.Anyone else experiencing this? Have an answer? Solution?

Android :: Notification - Alert When Battery Fully Charged

Nov 25, 2009

Does anyone know of a way to have the Droid make an alert sound of your choice when the battery is fully charged? It would be awesome to hear when the battery is charged rather than have to keep checking visually at various intervals. I can't keep my hands off of the phone so I can get a little impatient during the charging process sometimes, I'd love to be able to "set it and forget it" until I hear the alert. If there isn't a way to do this, someone should figure out a way to make it so.

Motorola Milestone :: Wrong Indications Of Charged Battery

Aug 25, 2010

I haven't seen a thread dealing with my exact overnight charging issue. Let's say my phone battery is at 80% and I go to bed. Here are the steps I take:

1. Turn off Wifi
2. Use Advanced Task Killer to kill all apps (except for the alarm clock).
3. Plug in the USB charger (or docking station for that matter)
4. Press the "sleep" button once so the screen goes dark. Or, just allow the screen to sleep. It doesn't matter either way.
5. Go to sleep.

When I wake up in the morning my battery level might be at 50%! And, say, 60% of "what's been using the battery" is "Display"? Also, I can unplug the charger from the phone, then put it back in and by the time I'm showered and dressed for work the battery indicator icon is at full (probably above 90%). What's going on here and what can I do to fix this?

Samsung Vibrant :: Battery Fully Charged Notification

Oct 14, 2010

Ok i promised I searched and didn't find a resolution to my question... Got my Vibrate on launch day. Love 95% of the phone. In a perfect world I would tweak a few things but by and large I am happy. HOWEVER after this most recent patch my battery full notification now also plays my notification sound. I.E. The very loud MP3 I have to wake me up in case I get a text in the middle of the night, now is going off at 3am to say "HEY battery is charged!!" Personally I would like to get rid of the battery notification all together, but I can work around everything but it playing that MP3. I know I can silence the phone but I WANT to know if I receive a text in the middle of the night. If it isn't possible to disable this alert I will simply not charge my phone at night so I really don't need alternative ideas, just to know if it is possible AND to provide feed back to someone this is less than an optimal situation if not.

Samsung Epic 4G :: Battery Life SUCKS / Need 100% Charged

Nov 16, 2010

New user here. My battery life sucks and I seriously need help. I've had the phone for about 4 days, and I don't think I am doing too much to drain my battery at all. I connect WiFi and 4g only when available.After being unplugged for 2 hours, I am down to 85%. I have plugged in through USB and watched about 5 minutes of video, then disconnected. I've noticed that while plugged in USB in charge mode and doing anything on the phone, it charges only when the phone is on standby. It will stay at same percentage if I am doing something as little as navigating around the phone. I have 5 hours of life left according to Juice Plotter (free). I have Juice Defender (free) on and it says it has increased my battery life by x1.52. I have 4g off and bluetooth on. I updated my PRL. I toggled on/off Airplane Mode. Quit DRM. I also kill applications that I am no longer using so I never have more than 3 apps running in a short period of time.

General :: Battery Is Fully Charged But Cannot Power The Phone?

Feb 28, 2013

I purchased an extended battery, a Motorola branded BP7X for a Droid 2 phone. It's rated at 3.7 volts/1820 mAh. I tested it with a volt-ohm meter and got a reading of 4.2 volts.

When I install the battery in the phone and connect the charger (phone is off), the charging graphic shows the battery is fully charged. I can power on the phone with the charger attached, but as soon as the charger is disconnected, the phone dies. I tried this battery in two Droid 2 phones and got the same behaviour. Is this an indication the battery is defective, or is there something I need to do to make the battery work?

HTC Desire :: Battery Indicator LED Not Turning Green When Fully Charged

Sep 28, 2010

Over the last few days the battery indicator LED stays orange instead of turning green when the phone is on charge but has fully charged.
The phone is switched off and left on charge over night, for the last 4 months since Ive had the phone when I get up in the morning the battery indicator LED has turned green to show that the battery is fully charged, as it should do. Its just since the weekend it now stays orange. The battery is charging as well as before, and when I switch it on in the morning its at 100%, so why is it staying orange when its fully charged?I was wondering if anyone has come accross this problem before and has any idea where the fault would lie. I dont personally know what exactly would be causing the handset to not detect the battery is fully charged? Also if the phone isnt detecting that the battery is fully charged could it cause any problems if it carrys on charging instead of cutting off the charger after its fully charged?Apart from this the phone is working perfectly and my battery life is pretty good for a Desire from what ive read online.

Samsung Fascinate :: Screen Experiencing Burn In Due To Battery Charged Prompt

Nov 29, 2010

I'm noticing a bit of screen burn-in on my Fascinate, after having it for about 2 and a half monthes. What is burning in is the prompt that appears when my battery is done charging when I plug it in at night. For some reason, when this prompt appears, the screen won't timeout and turn off again, thus keeping the display on for hours after a charge is complete and burning that display in. Currently, it's a very dim burn-in that is only noticable on a completely white background, but it's frustrating nonetheless (and I assume irreversible.... please correct me if i am wrong though...So, i guess my questions are.Is there a setting that will force my display to time-out when plugged in? I haven't messed with too many of the default settings, so I assume this is default behavior of the phone to keep the display on when charging is complete.If not, is there a way around this, without rooting, that will protect my phone's screen from burning in, when this message appears?

HTC Desire :: Fully Charged - Or Not?

Nov 1, 2010

I wondered if anyone else had observed this and come to the same conclusion.Obviously, when the Desire is fully charged, the LED goes from orange to green and I assume it starts trickle charging to protect the battery.HOWEVER, if a "high current" application runs when the phone is trickle charging (even just having the screen on - like after the alarm has gone off) and the phone is drawing more than the trickle charging supplies, the battery supplies the rest. Thus, when you unplug it, the battery monitor re-evaluates the state of charge and it is (sometimes) way below 100%.So, I've got into the habit of a) blanking the screen again after the alarm has gone off b) unplugging the phone for a couple of minutes and then plugging it back in to check what charge it really has (and giving it a chance to charge up to 100% again.I suspect there is a bug lurking in there in not switching back to full charge rate if the battery has lost charge.

HTC Desire :: Charged For Using Wi-Fi On 3G Network?

Sep 1, 2010

I have a HTC Desire on Orange contract, I have had no problems with it or any billing problems until now!!!

Went on holiday but before I went I took a travel bundle of 10 MB, I know I would probably use more than this but only by a a few MB whislt out of wi fi zones... got back to UK and checked my bill and �537.00 is the data charge.. considering 95% of my web and email activity was via a wi fi network I am rather shocked.

I have heard that the HTC Desire still uses the 3g or data network even if you are in a wi fi zone, can anyone confirm this as I am having a bust up with Orange as it does not state anywhere that the data connection is still running when you are in a wi fi zone... bit pointless having wi fi or doing stuff in a wi fi zone if you are still being charged data.. why would you have wi fi on if you were going to be charged.

I uploaded youtube clips, facebook, listened to the radio all through what I thought was my FREE wi fi network... every other phone I have ever had automatically cut the data connection when you were in a wi fi zone... it seems that the desire does not do this....

Samsung Vibrant :: Fully Charged At 80-85%?

Sep 6, 2010

Haven't seen this yet on the forums for the Galaxy S devices. Yesterday and today, my device has been saying it's fully charged when it's only between 80-85% charged. This happens when plugged into the USB cable attached to my PC, haven't noticed it when plugged into a wall charger (such as when I wake up in the morning...it's 100%). Yesterday it would cap off at 85% when the double-tweet alert says it's fully charged, today it registers fully charged at 81% (just now). If I unplug it and plug it back in, it will start charging again like normal (it may even continue charging on it's own without unplugging it, but I'm always next to it when it happens, so I'll try leaving it the next time it alerts).It just happened again (10 minutes later), and I left it plugged in, unlocked the screen, and BattStatt said fully charged. Even the device's "about" section said 100%. I then unplugged it, and it immediately dropped to 83%. Then I plugged it back in, it rose to 85%, and dropped back down to 83% a second later. I don't think it's the battery, as in my 2 years designing battery packs about 7 years ago, I've never seen one discharge 17% instantly. Gotta be a software issue.

HTC EVO 4G : Fully Charged - Than Dies Mysteriously

Aug 18, 2010

Had this happened last night for the first time, last time i looked at the phone it was at 66% battery, an hour or so later it was completely dead and would not charge, not even the indicator light came on. Pulled the battery, nothing, switched chargers and still nothing.

Put a call into HTC and we pulled the battery again as well as did the power and low volume toggle reset and it turned on finally, showing the orange light. Did a soft reset again after that to make sure, everything is fine again, but very very strange.

HTC said they've had some of these issues pop up recently for no apparent reason. The problem would have been if the phone didn't come back at all ...

Sprint HTC Hero :: Car Chargers - 10% Charged In 1 Hour

Nov 23, 2009

I've tried two aftermarket car chargers for my hero now, both of which just just just barely charge my phone if I don't use it. Like less than 10% charged in 1 hour. Neither of them would hold my phone's charge steady while plugged in if I was using it. Just slowed the discharge rate somewhat.

I've got my eye on an HTC branded charger that you can look at here. Does anyone have it? Does it actually charge the phone? I would imagine it does considering it's from HTC, but I wanna make sure before I drop 26 dollars (with shipping) on a charger, only to find out it works the same as the cheapo ones.

Android :: Amazon MP3 App On Droid / Credit Card Could Not Be Charged

Nov 7, 2009

Let me start by saying that the Droid is a pretty impressive piece of technology.I tried purchasing an MP3 through the Amazon MP3 app, which comes pre-installed on the Droid. Everything looked like it was working fine, until I got to the checkout part. I entered my amazon e-mail and password, accepted the terms of service, and was immediately taken to the "Now purchasing" screen - I was never prompted for a method of payment (is this normal).Has anyone else experienced this? Are others prompted to choose a payment method? The only other posts that I've found with this problem are from people in the UK who bought the phone in the US. The responses indicate that the problem is maybe due to the app accessing the US store, but the user being located in the UK. I bought my phone in Maryland, and that's where I live, so I don't see how this could be the problem.

Samsung I7500 :: Strange Charging - Phone Did Not Recognize That Is Being Charged At All

Aug 11, 2009

I tried to charge my updated phone (baseband I7500XXIG8) on both car lighter charger and third party micro usb charger. When connected, the phone did not recognize that it is being charged at all - but after a while I noticed that the battery widget did show more percentage than before. Even after disconnecting, the percentage varied up and down few percent - from 80% to 85%, then (after heavy usage of 3G, wlan, gps...) jumped to 50%. The rest of discharge was also erratic, i.e. in no way was it smooth discharge curve.

I attribute this to firmware - I don't believe that my chargers cannot supply enough mA or too low voltage and that the phone does not detect it;

After discharging the phone completely (it shut down at 1%, interesting it did not want to turn on 3G under 5%) I charged it with the original charger. After ~20 minutes of charging the battery was on 55%, isn't it a bit too fast?

I'll try to cycle it few times now.

I also guess that this kind of "uncontrolled" charging can at least uncalibrate the battery if not even damage it...

This is totally unacceptable given the already bad or erratic power performance of galaxy. Not being able to charge it the car makes it unusable.

I never heard of such problems with other microusb-charged devices...
