Safe Charge

Safe Charge


If your Nexus (or any other Android device) suffers from sleep of death, in other words dying while connected to the charger, then this is the app for you! Just install, start, configure the application and you are safe from missing any alarms while charging overnight.

It is recommended to leave the automatic mode switched on, because in this way the app will start when connected to external power and stop on disconnect and won't consume any battery. You can use the manual mode to ensure your device won't go to sleep even if the screen goes off in case you are streaming a movie to your HDTV or running background tasks.

Completely free (also no ads are included)!

IMPORTANT!
If you have force stopped the application, the system unregisters the broadcast receiver and the service cannot be started automatically when the charger is connected. You have to open the application manually so the broadcast receivers are registered again. Please check if there is a notification for the ongoing service in order to be sure that the app is running

Permissions explained:

WAKE_LOCK - prevent device from sleeping while charging.
BATTERY_STATS - check the current battery state.
RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED - receive the "boot completed" message, so the application can check if the power is connected on boot and start if neccessary

Recent changes:
Version 1.6
Fixed bug with autostart on boot

Version 1.5.2
- Fixed bug with wireless charging

Version 1.5.1
- Bug fixes with manual mode

Works perfectly! Thanks so much. I can now use my phone as an alarm again as it had become a liability. Have had this a week and so far no more random deaths in charging. Would happily donate for this fix that Google seems to be uninterested in fixing.
