Nexus 6 always turns off at 9% battery

2015-07-16, 19:29 PM

Hey all,



My Nexus 6 always turns itself off at 9% without warning. Anyone else experiencing this?

Most battery protection circuits will cut off at ~10%. You can't run a lipo battery to zero charge without risking it lighting off. With a 3200 mAh battery, 9% is about 300 mAh, which is nothing for our phones. This is assuming that the indicator is accurate to within 100-200 mAh.

Thanks for that information. Personally, I don't WANT my battery to ever hit zero. We've all seen that unexpectedly bad things happen in that event. There are even a few instances of phones never waking up again. though most do after some time on the charger. Fortunately, this safeguard is built in to the Nexus, along with warning messages, and a RED battery icon.

So what you're trying to say is that this is normal behavior?

No, my wife's battery goes down to zero, then shuts off. There's an error somewhere in how the battery stats are being reported, I'm just trying to figure out how to fix this.

I don't know that it's normal, I'm just saying that it could be. I'm a light user and charge every night, so my battery never gets that low.

I have noticed this lately on my Nexus 6. I will keep an eye and see if it keeps occurring.
