Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-6838) Battery Plugin needs to be completely re-written
Date Tue, 24 Mar 2015 16:06:53 GMT


Joe Bowser commented on CB-6838:

Chrome 38 has implemented this, BUT for some reason the available Android WebView on the play
store is stuck on Chrome 37, and that's only applicable for Android 5.01 devices.  All other
Android devices are running an earlier version of Chrome. :/

> While investigating the Battery Plugin, I've discovered quite a few issues with it that
tells me that this will never actually work:
> 1. This listens to BATTERY_CHANGED.  We can never listen to this Broadcast because the
battery ALWAYS changes and this will drain the battery.  Android explicitly prevents this
event from being listened to
> 2. We don't set up a BroadcastReceiver for BATTERY_LOW, BATTERY_CHARGED
> 3. We have no idea whether the phone is plugged into an AC Adapter or a Computer, this
is important information to have.
> I think that it's probably a good idea for this plugin to be completely re-written.
