It would be nice if the upper notification limit could also be configured instead of being hardcoded to 100%. I have read that or best battery health, the battery charge should be between 40% and 80%.

Maybe in the next version... I will do it with setting, like Btrfs balance checker 2 :)

Hi, is there a particular reason why Battery-Notifier always restarts Aliendalvik when I turn it on or off?

Schturman's picture

It shouldn't to do this. Just now tested with Dolphin browser opened, when I stopped battery notifier it also close browser, I reopened browser and started battery notifier and now browser is not closed.
I don't think it restart dalvik, maybe because of memory it close opened app sometimes...

objectifnul's picture

Please try this:

1. stop Aliendalvik

2. turn battery notifier on or off (toggle)

3. check if Aliendalvik is running.

Schturman's picture

On no dalvik restart anymore... For me at least ;)

Schturman's picture

yep, you are right... but like I said before it shouldn't do this and I don't know why it happens.
My script is not include dalvik restart command, you can check it by yourself in /usr/share/openrepos-batterynotifer.

I have a solarTOH and would be great if I could disable vibration, sound, notification when it starts charging. At sunny days like this it starts even in my pocket! Maybe Jolla knows when power comes from toh and not usb?

Schturman's picture

You need ask the solarTOH creator how to disable this notifications...

I can not see anything on my screen. Can you help me?

I have installed meecast-lockscreen an this works. But I see no other widgets I have installed (Calendarambiance and Battery Statusbar on lockscreen (patch)).

Schturman's picture

Battery notifier is not related to the lockscreen patches. I also use meecast-lockscreen patch and notifier work like should be. The default border is 20% and you can change it, read explanation above you.

Thanks Schturman, well done!

It's funny how your apps are always underrated, somebody seems to play with that!

Schturman's picture

Noticed that too, it's probably because you can vote without download/test app. Not so important for me.. Who like it, use it. That all ;)

Markkyboy's picture

Another great little app, thanks man. Shame you have spelled notifier without an 'i', Oops! ;)


Schturman's picture

Oops, also here :D
Will fix it...

Markkyboy's picture

still says it on the .rpm file (doh!) :D

Schturman's picture

Yes, I know.. I didn't change all files. I changed only in notifications, what user see :D It's more quickly ;)
