* Nexus (4.1.1)
* Nexus (4.2.1)
=== Don't Works ===
* Nexus (4.0.1)
* Emulator (4.0.1)

The reason for the failure is because the system failed to recognize the "ACTION_POWER_CONNECTED broadcast" (detect charging cable is plugged in), this is fixed in version 4.0.4.
If the app failed to works on your device, set the app to "Debug mode" to check if this is the cause. For more information see help in app.

*** For Samsung Galaxy Nexus (4.2+) ***
Comment dated 2012-12-29, report "Daydream" feature does not conflict with the app, but as always the screen needs to be off for the LED to light up. Thanks you for the report.
*** For Samsung Galaxy S3 users ***
The GS3 actually have a built in charging LED indicator option.
The app maybe having conflict with this option, try disable this first. "Setting > LED indicator > Charging".
Again, as I don't own a GS3, appreciate anyone with a GS3 to test this out and report finding. Thank you.
