MoritzAbel, Feb 5, 2019 : Scheduled Charging Most phones already are capable of predicting the necessary time to charge to 100%, as well as the ability to stop or interrupt the charging process. So why don’t we combine these features? Who are the users? My proposed feature is targeted mostly towards power-users that use their phone in such a way that the battery is empty right when they go to bed. As far as I know, this is fairly common and a day is a normal time span for a Smartphone battery to last. What is the proposed feature? I envision an option similar to the “scheduled power on/off”- feature where basically you can state the time you are going to wake up in the morning and plug your phone into the outlet. The software will analyze the battery percentage you have left and will predict how long it will take to charge to 100%. Then, it will initiate the charging process just in time for it to be finished when you wake up. This will conserve the battery as it is not good to charge it overnight. This feature will contribute to users being able to use their phone for a longer time. What is the user value? As the feature would help conserve the battery, it would enable you to use your phone for a longer time because normally, partly due to charging over night, the batteries’ maximum capacity shrinks over time. By preventing this, phones can “live” longer. If there are existing comparable functions in the Smartphone industry, how is your proposed feature superior? As far as I know, no one has implemented this kind of a feature before. This is a chance for OnePlus to be the first at something and set a trend. Explain the logic behind this feature and how you want it to be implemented I would want an option named “scheduled charging” to show up under “utilities”, right under the “scheduled power on/off”-option. When you tap it, there should be a text explaining the feature and underneath this, you should type in the time you wake up.
