Get Battery Status to use as trigger

    I want to use my phone going on charge as a trigger. The problem is that my phone doesn't have wireless charging on board so I added a Wireless Charging Receiver that plugs into phone. Unfortunately, my phone doesn't register as charging when my phone is placed on a wireless charging mat. I assume that the charge is not large enough to register.

    I am hoping that there is a way to get that charging value using Tasker but I have been unable to find a method by Googling. I have found the Battery Monitor v1.3 but can't figure out how to get any usable values out of it.

    Any suggestions?

    If the phone doesn't register as charging, is it actually charging? Just curious: you'd think that if the status bar shows it charging then the status would be set, and it doesn't take a lot of current to get that symbol to show (a basic computer USB-A socket will do it). I've no experience of wireless charging (it doesn't appeal to me), so maybe this is normal, but I can't imagine it charges slower than a PC's USB socket.
  3. Don't know if this is any help but when I plug in charger I have tasker say battery is being charged.
    (Power AC) (Say)

    At every 10% I have tasker say battery is at x%
    (Battery Changed) (Say)

    Anyway I hope it helps you, or someone.

    Never mind my previous post, I should have better read what you'd written. That said, wouldn't STATE > POWER > BATTERY LEVEL work as a trigger?

⚙No repetitive tasks for you, let your Android device handle it!⚙
Total Automation, From Settings to SMS. Here are only some
of the things you could do with Tasker. Its real power is the flexibility to combine contexts and tasks however you wish: https://tasker.joaoapps.com/exampleuses.htmlAutomations
Make your phone a true smart
phone! Why remember to change the volume every day when you leave home when your phone can do it for you? Automate stuff based on the app you're in
, the time of day
, your location
, your Wi-Fi network
, Received SMS or Calls
, the currently playing song
and many other (130+) states and events! Check out how easy it is to create an automation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6EAbLW5WSkActions
350+ actions allow you to truly customize your phone like never before! Send SMS, create notifications, change almost any system setting like Wifi Tether, Dark Mode, Always On Display, change any volume, control Do Not Disturb, open apps, file manipulation, control music playback, get your location... you get the idea. If you can think of it, Tasker can probably do it for you! Note: root is NOT (I repeat NOT) required for majority of the functions.
However, a few of the actions (like the Airplane Mode action and the Mobile Data action on some devices) require root. Regarding those few actions that do require root, this is because of Android security policies that developers cannot work around. ☑ Other Triggers
Manually trigger your actions via launcher shortcuts, quick setting tiles, widgets, long-pressing volume buttons, media buttons (like the ones on your BT headsets or headphones), Bixby button, Navigation Bar, Notificaitons and more! ☑ Join - Remote Tasker
Adding Join (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.joaomgcd.join) to the mix will even allow you to trigger tasks from another Android device or PC! ☑ Scenes
Design your own UI and use it to display any info you want or trigger any task! ☑ App Creation
Create your own standalone apps to share or sell with the Tasker App Factory (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.dinglisch.android.appfactory)! ☑ Developer Friendly
A lot of 3rd party developers already allow you to perform actions in their apps and listen to their events/states through Tasker! Check out a list of plugins https://tasker.joaoapps.com/pluginlist.html. You can also call most of the Web APIs from Tasker with the powerful HTTP Auth and HTTP Request actions!
