Handy Akku explodiert im Bus

Der Handyakku sprüht Funken

Tja, bei diesem Video hätte wohl selbst Battery Temperature Guard nicht mehr helfen können. Das Video von einer Überwachungskamera in China zeigt einen Bus in welchem eine Frau gerade ihren Handyakku wechselt. Direkt danach fängt das Smartphone an Funken zu sprühen und zu brennen. Wow :)



Battery Temperature Guard warnt euch, wenn die Temperature zu heiß wird. Auf dem Video sieht man leider nicht genau wie lange der Akku schon im Handy is und ob das Handy eingeschaltet wurde. Eventuell hätte diese kostenlose App der Frau das Handy retten können ;)

New Preferences Layout

With the growing featureset of Temperature Guard I was unsatisfied with the current preferences screen. After adding the ability to change the app theme, the temperature scale or added the cool led notification, the current preferences layout was full of options and even I always need a little bit to much time to find the setting I wanted to change. Thats why I cleaned the Temperature Guard Preferences screen in the latest version 2.6
When changing the temperature scale from Fahrenheit to Celsius or the other way, the app will not calculate the corresponding warning temperature automatically.

android temperature preferences
The main temperature guard preferences screen
The preferences are now split into several preferences screens. The first option Temperature Icon will open a new screen with the options for the temperature icon. The Permanent notification checkbox is new. When checked the temperature notification will remain when you clear all notifications.

Temperature Icon Preferences Screen
When clicking on the first option "Show Temperature" you can select to always show the temperature, never show the temperature or just show the temperature when charging.

Select when you want to see the temperature icon


All settings for the warning notification are now inside a custom preferences screen. You will reach them by clicking on "Warning Notification" when on the main preferences. There is one new option. The insistent notification can now be customized. Some people complained that they cannot remove the insistent notification. As default, this setting is disabled, so the temperature notification will only notify you once. When checked, The notification will notify you until you swipe it.

How i can resolve my battery problem of high temperature

When your phone gets too hot, you should put it out of the sun. Do not put it in a fridge. A ventilator can cool it down a little bit faster.
If your phone constantly gets too hot, you should replace the battery or contact your retailer for a replacement.

What is the best warning temperature to set?

The default warning temperature is set to 50 degrees celcius. Using a high end smartphone you should raise this value to about 55 degrees, cause new smartphones will get quite hot.
To keep your battery healthy and ensure a long life, try to keep it as chilled as possible.

How does the warning notification work?

You can configure the vibration and sound of the notification. Once the warning is triggered, it will vibrate until you swipe from top to bottom to open the android notification drawer.
You can test the notification if you open the preferences, scroll down and click on Test notification. This will fire a notification in five seconds.
Click here for a detailed description of the preferences fragments.

Memory Usage of Temperature Guard

I recently got a review for Temperature Guard from a guy complaining about too high memory usage. The review is in german, so I will not post it here. Well he complains that this app uses 250 mb of his smartphones memory, so he uninstalled it.
I was a little bit shocked and investigated this case. Temperature Guard Free & Pro will use about 30-75 mb of your memory, what is quite okay in my opinion.

Memory usage of Temperature Guard

Another thing about memory usage of apps is, that memory is made to be used. Unused memory is worthless. The android subsystem will handle memory usage, garbage collection and many more.

New features for more safety

Overheating wireless chargers? 

I received some mails from people complaining about the "tylt Qi wireless charger" overheating their Nexus 5 devices. I love the idea of wireless chargers but did not buy any yet, cause they are quite expensive. Hearing more and more rumours about wireless chargers overheating android smartphones made me implement some small new features for Temperature Guard.

Force Sound Alarm 

Inside the newest Preferences Screen you can see the option "Force sound". This will warn you when your device overheats even if your smartphone is set to silent mode. After the notification you have to set your phone to silent again.

I recently received another photo of an exploded battery apparently inside an iPhone 3GS. As you can see the battery is full blown up and wrecked the whole device. Nobody has been hurt by this accident. Maybe I should try to get an iphone and implement Temperature Guard for iOS?!
