Subject RE: Can we please kill the Battery Plugin on Android
Date Tue, 08 Mar 2016 06:00:49 GMT
What's our deprecation policy? Should we log a deprecation message before remove this support.
What alternatives do Cordova developers have - are there other plugins which provide the equivalent
functionality - perhaps with a better API - as opposed to polling events every 1% battery

If no one has concerns by the end of the week, I'd say we would have lazy consensus and you
can delete the Android part of the plugin (maybe prep the PR now)
