Battery Fully Charged Alert -- Possible to turn this off?Support

Last Updated:

  1. 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? Thanks.

    There have been rumors about "overcharging" but I don't believe that. Just in case, it wouldn't be a bad idea to unplug it. Whenever I get it I usually leave it charged for a couple more minutes, but thats just how I am haha. I am not sure if you can disable that, but I would listen to its advice :D

    Yeah, I had this happen too. I'd like to turn it off as well. What's interesting is unplugging it, and plugging it back in, turns off the alarm and doesn't seem to come back.

    I am too OCD to take off my phone from the charger until LAST minute before I have to. Even if it does affect the battery, I usually get a new one every year (if I can keep a phone/gadget that long!) to make sure my battery is fully functioning.

    I know that there has been a long debate about leaving laptops plugged in with the battery, and that effecting the battery life. It seems that if there was a problem, newer devices and battery technology have fixed it. I would imagine this would be implemented into mobile devices as well.

    We've come a long way from the old NI-CADS! (Remember having to drain your battery fully 3x on old phones? Bleh.)

    I actually kinda like having the battery full alert... to each their own, I guess.

    Meh, batteries are dirt cheap for these phones... I don't care how long they last, I too would like to turn the notice off.

    I saw this suggestion in another forum and it WORKS, so I'm passing it on !
    Set the global notifications to SILENT.
    Set the notification on Gmail to any ringtone, NOT DEFAULT.
    Set the notification on messaging to any ringtone, NOT DEFAULT.

    You'll still have a tone when you 1st plug the phone in to the charger, but NO tone when it's fully charged.

    Did this. The phone still vibrates when it's fully charged when I put the phone on silent and the phone's screen still turns on (and won't turn off).

    I think the OP is talking about the box that pops up saying the phone is charged, not an audible alert.

    And FWIW, I got a burn in on my screen from that battery charged notification....I can actually see it on some screens, especially if they're white. Not a big deal, but it shouldn't happen.

    This is quite annoying. I regularly use my phone as a music player for my car stereo, seeing as the CD player broke. I plug in the car charger, and when it gets fully charged, it keeps bugging me every ten minutes or so. I guess there are times when the captivate can actually draw more power than the car charger can give it at one time? Either that or they really want you to remove the charger. I eventually just put the phone on Silent, if there is a call the audio stops playing anyway, so I can still tell when I'm getting a call.

    In order to prevent screen burnout, when I charge my Captivate at night, I place it face down. The notification usually does not come on. This always works if I do a "off/on" cycle before I plug it for charging at night. Also, it will still ring / vibrate for incoming messages.
    I called both Samsung and ATT, and they both told me that there was now way to disable the "battery full" notification.

    This is on a stock Captivate with no root or mod done (yet).

    I added this on my Transform:

    menu:settings:applications:development: (uncheck all boxes)

    the screen turns on initially but then turns off like it should

    Anything new on this?

    This stupid alarm pops up and the screen turns on and wakes me up at night, even when the phone is face down. It's really annoying. How can we disable this?

    same here. i do not need to be woken at 330am every night from a alert that telling me the battery is fully charged. :mad:
    There has to be a way to turn this audible alarm off.

    Many custom ROMs disable this...

    There is a program to fix this "battery fully charged" notification,
    it's called "Droid Essentials". It is i the Android Market.

    Sucks because once downloaded, the app specifically says that it does not work for Samsung devices. :(

    Just upgraded to 2.2 and found that the option to turn off the screen automatically at full charge is gone and the screen will stay on until the on off switch is pushed. Not convenient as my phone is required to be a on 27/7/365. First, if I wake up in the night the screen is on and I have to get up to turn it off. I also fear that the screen might fail from it being on every night. I can schedule around this most of the time but there should be a way to keep the screen off.

    If anyone has ideas or knows on an app I would be grateful.

    I've only seen this addressed in certain recent custom hacked ROMs. Otherwise it's a known issue/change with stock 2.2 that many are not happy with.

    I tried T75's advice above and turned the master notifications to SILENT (in top level Sound Settings). Then be sure notifications are turned on in the messaging app and optionally in the email app. (I prefer no email notifications.) That works great to turn off the battery alarm! The phone display does not stay on as mentioned above on my Samsung Droid Charge. So, problem solved. Thanks T75!

    I tried the above mentioned app and it works perfectly on my Samsung Galaxy S2. I just can recommend it!
