Suggestion: introduce battery charge limit

    AccuBattery doesn't provide correct data just based on one charge cycle. It will radically change as you charge various times and it analyses data.
    See the result when it is based on at least a dozen charge cycles, it's useless otherwise.

    It doesn't get a good average with just one cycle? You don't say! No shit. Whats your point

    There is a Magisk module that may do what you want

    You seemed to be making a conclusion on battery longevity based on a very limited data set (a single charge cycle of a single device). You might be right, but your data are too limited to make any claims. That's the point.

    What are yo talking about?

    If you mean that there is only a single cycle in the screenshot, that's because I don't keep the app running all the time. I don't need to because the battery status is the same as it was a month ago and a month before that.

    Don't call me stupid, alright? I've been doing this stuff for years. Don't make me run the damn app for a month just to prove to you that the battery is still in the mid 80s. Batteries deteriorate rather quickly into the 80% range, but unless you are seriously abusing them, they then taper off and stay in that range for quite awhile.

    My point is the same. Trying to conserve your battery life by only charging it to 80% means you are at 80% NOW, not in 2 years. What's the goal? Keep it at 80 for 8 years?

    This thread is like a cancer now!!!
    Look, for those who thinks not full charge is better... Good... Keep that info with yourself and enjoy your lifetime battery!!! Coz I know you'll be using this phone for next 4-5 years...
    For those who don't believe in these things... Don't waste your time here... [​IMG]

    Nobody is making you run the app at all, nor calling you stupid. As I said before, I am open to the possibility that you may be right. But your evidence so far is insufficient to convince me of that.

    Based on research I've seen, charging habits can make a difference in capacity of about a 10% after a year's worth of cycles. After a year owning a phone, I think it'd be worth having that extra 10% when I really need it (say, when traveling), even though most days I never get below 30%.

    I don't want my phone to "steal" power from my drone remote controller. So telling it to stop charging would really be a desired function. It would be great to tell the phone it's not allowed to charge itself and only maintain the battery level at 30% for example. In that way I will not run out of battery of my drone controller... I can imagine other applications where you don't want your phone to charge itself at the cost of another battery powered device.

    Stop propogating this rediculous idea. You are not extending crap, just getting less use out of your battery

    Don't unplug your phone! Why do you people do such silly things? Stop trying to outsmart your phone. You'll fail

    really? haha it's the remote controller that I am talking about that you have to connect to your phone to properly fly the drone... think about the DJI series drones...

    yes, the controller, once connected charges the phone but the phone is very power hungry while the remote control doesn't have a very large battery. The remote control should use it's battery energy to fly the aircraft instead of charging the phone. As a result I get far shorter flight times because of the phone discharging the remote control. On top of that, this remote control does not quick charge so charging it takes a very long time. Not beneficial at all. I would be very happy to be able to turn off charging the phone on the phone itself.

    I rooted previous phones so that I had full control over charging the battery to whatever level I liked. I don't want to root this phone because I don't want to loose L1 Widevine for being able to watch HDR and HD movies on Netflix... Alternatively I would like the OnePlus 7 pro to keep Level1 Widevine when unlocking and rooting the phone so that I can just root it and take care of all this charging issue by myself... but I don't see this happening.

    There may be a way. I haven't tried it yet.

    Basically, you use fastboot to unlock the bootloader and then upload your own signing keys. Then you root your boot image and sign it with those keys. Now you should be able to relock the bootloader and get widevine back, but you'll have to sign your own kernels at every update.

    It would surprise me if this works.

    I unfortunately am not capable enough to try this procedure you are proposing, if not I would be willing to explore it of course!!!
