About this app

NOTE: This app requires ROOT access to work - if you don't know what it is, it is highly probable that your device doesn't have it. There is no other way this app can work on non-rooted phones. Not all devices may be supported as well! If your device is not supported, please follow the help & support text below. Also, checkout xda-developers.com for more information on rooting devices.

The app works when the device is plugged in and starts charging below the max threshold and will stop once the device is either unplugged or hits the max threshold, completely stopping charging!

The app is OPEN SOURCE, with the source code found on Github: https://github.com/sriharshaarangi/BatteryChargeLimit

Check out the XDA thread for more help & support:

Help & Support
To request support for a device/issue, please open an Issue on GitHub and a developer will assist you soon!

This app is not responsible for unintended behavior - though any changes done by it are usually temporary and typically do not survive a reboot.

The app worked for wired charging out of the box for me, but not for wireless charging. I had to set the CTRL file to /sys/class/power_supply/dc-wireless/charging_enabled to get it working for wireless charging but not for wired. Edit: I've found an even better CTRL file to use on my device (an LG V30 running a custom ROM): /sys/devices/platform/lge-unified-nodes/charging_enable (note no 'd' on the end of this one). That file works for me for both wired and wireless charging, so I suggest that people try that one first. A couple of suggestions for the developer are that it'd be nice if more of these possible CTRL files were predefined in the app and if there were a Browse button so that we could select the file instead of typing out the path. Despite those minor annoyances, the app does do what I really needed it to, so I definitely recommend it.

Rooted pixel 4 xl running android 12 beta 3. Doesn't work for me. I have granted it super user rights but It has not yet successfully limited battery charge. Every night (via wireless charge) it hits 100%. Even typing this, it is plugged in and charging beyond the set limit. Again the app is up and running in the background with SU rights. The app is simple and utilitarian, which I really like. It's a bummer it doesn't work for me.

Love it. Thank you very much for taking the time and putting this up! Needed to manually set settings "Pixel 2" for Pixel 3 (didn't auto detect). After that it worked correctly (default setting worked, but it never started charging again after first disable). Also currently the charging icon always stays on (charging stops and starts correctly though)
