    I actually wondered this too, and after looking for 30 min. I came up with nothing.

    yeah, that makes little sense to me. When our battery is close to dying, lets turn on a red flashing light.

    The little red LED uses so little power that it is pointless to believe that it will drain your battery. It in fact is a good way of notifying you that your battery is about to the die without putting more strain on the system.

    If you are that worried about your battery at those levels there are third party apps that allow you to develop power profiles based on battery life.

    Yeah, honestly an LED uses negligible power, let alone an LED that is so small, dim, and only on for brief (flashing) periods. There's no reason to disable it.

    i just think it's annoying, i don't care about the energy it takes. the blinking red light was just driving me nuts. if it was just a notification that I could clear that'd be one thing, but it won't go away until after the phone is above 10% battery

    I know it is annoying but I think it's meant to be annoying. It's like the "low fuel" light on the dash of your car. If you run out of fuel (gas or batter on the phone) things could be bad.

    I'm not sure cause I haven't used it in a while, but perhaps Missed Call has a setting for this?

    If you guys think this is annoying, my old WinMo phone would vibrate or beep every 5 minutes when the battery was low. ;)

    Yes, it would be better not to notify you at all so that it just dies and you don't know.

    ^ I think you got it. Either that, or for a less permanent fix, a small piece of black electrical tape. ;)
