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.
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.
So I have had a task killer app for a while now but the battery is still horrible. Wasn't the update opposed to help too? Put it this way if my phone is unplugged for 10 minutes even having killed all tasks my battery will be at 80%. Friday night I went out about 9pm at barclose my phone was completely dead. That's pathetic? Any other suggestions P.s. Save the rude ass comments like return the phone.
1 week ago i had to buy a new charger for my chinese tablet. but then problem with battery started. My battery is ALWAYS 100% and say charged even if i am not charging it . I try to root it and i did it ( i fight with this task about 5 days cause its a no-name tablet). Then when i rooted , i try to write some commands on terminal with no solution to my problem. Also i have the apk battery calibration and its not working too.
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?
My Dinc used to make an announcement when the battery was charged. I think it was a battery widget I had installed, but for the life of me, I can't find that same one again. Anyone know which app does that? Or is it just the stock battery, because I've also replaced it with the 1500.
Anyone know how to disable the charging completed sound? My wifes Fascinate uses the default notification sound once its done charging.. usually around 1-2am.. I suppose I can set the default sound to "none", but then I'd have to set all the other apps (vm, sms, etc).
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.
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?
I got a new moto g about a week ago and it worked like a charm, but yesterday it started doing something wired, the battery indicator always shows that the phone is fully charged, to the point where it shut its self down because it run out, and still showed battery fully charged.
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?
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.
My fiance's Moment has always had battery issues, right now its sitting at "90%" it always takes long to fully download. I just wanted to know if anyone here performed the upgrade without FULLY charging their battery, and what were the results?
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.
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?
The phone pops up an alert when the battery is fully charged, saying to unplug. First of all, is there a reason for doing so? (Is it bad to keep it plugged in once it's fully charged?) Also, is there a way to disable this or at least make it quiet (without having to silence the entire phone), so it does not wake me up?
Ok so I usually plug my phone in to charge over night next to my bed. However it gives me a notification sound, like a txt message, when the battery has charged. This is kinda annoying but cannot seem to find a way of turning it off. I know you are gonna suggest tuning the sound off but thats not what i want to do. So is it possible to just turn the battery charged notification off?
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.
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?
Have tried installing update on my X2 but it wont install onto my phone-but update fails on software install. Keeps telling me to check that my battery is full and retry or contact support? Have followed the update sequence as instructed but still no joy and now my phone will only load up the service mode?
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.
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.
