    Never found an option for an alarm of this sort - phone went dead today and i didn't even know about it till i checked it later on - Would be helpful if theres some app or something that could notify about battery going dead -

    Nope, there's just the silly "/!\" in the notification bar. :(

    What I do to "deal with it" is to have Toggle Settings switch "everything" off when the battery reaches 40%, and hope I'll recharge it before it runs down completely. :rolleyes:

    Well then... Nokia : Android - 1:0 (I also had a Nokia... Quite a few actually ;) ).

    Interestingly, I guess even HTC have not taken care about this problem in their Sense UI.

    i guess the problem with that kinda app would be that it'd need to check the battery status periodically and that would wake the phone and have the ironic effect of reducing battery life (?)

    every feature reduces battery life, but losing 0.01% of the battery is nothing compared to losing job because your battery went dead without notice.

    remember how the galaxy's case used to half-press the camera button and hence prevent the phone from sleeping? yeah, 1‱

    I also want an app for that. My X10 is getting me in lots of problems because of that. One moment I'm at 20% and I say "great, just enough to get me home" and when I get home it's already dead. And I find at least 2 missed calls... (hey... important person... :D)
    What can we do? Is there an android app developer here to help us?

    Last thing I'd want when I'm on low battery is something that wastes what little battery life I have left on lighting up the screen and playing sound effects.

    I use Tasker (Tasker for Android ... not on Market I dont think) to turn off everything non-phone related when the battery reaches 30% (+ dimmed screen + 7 sec screen off delay + an audible notification), and an audible alarm you have to acknowledge at 15%.

    It didnt appear to have any (noticable) detrimental affect on battery life doing just that, though using location based tasks certainly did (even rough/cell location only).

    My issue is I changed the file extension on my low battery alarm to silence it. Now it uses my ringtone. Sitting in a business meeting when suddenly at full volume.. "excuse me sir but I'm afraid someone is attempting to contact you telephonically...shall I tell them to f**k off?"

    Lmao I could have just died. Fortunately it got a big laugh. Bullet dodged lol.
