Charging your phone every night to 100% and keeping the battery like this for 8 hours is one of the main culprits behind early battery failure. We're here to change that.
Chargie is an app+hardware phone charge limiting solution that makes your battery last for much longer than if you had charged it regularly to 100% all night, every night.
Here's how it works:
1. For the app to work, you need to get your Chargie USB device from https://chargie.org. 2. Insert the device into your regular charger and the phone cable into Chargie. 3. Install the app on your phone. 4. Set the charge percentage you need for the next day. 5. Go to sleep.
Chargie takes control of the power flow following an algorithm that decreases battery temperature and voltage related stress, throughout the 8 hours of nighttime charging.
This will dramatically increase battery and phone lifespan because of the way lithium ion chemistry works.
With Chargie, your phone not only lasts for more years, but has also a much lower carbon footprint. Present-day smartphones are still a good fit even after three years, if their performance is not throttled by the OS because of poor battery health.
Moreover, you'll be able to resell your old phone for more when you decide to change it, because it will be Chargie Certified, and this will be a guarantee of the protection of its battery.
We have DHL shipping available, so you can get your Chargie tomorrow if you live in NY or anywhere in the EU. If not, shipping takes 3 days at most, in any part of the world, so you can be up and running in no time.
IMPORTANT: Chargie needs Location Access to scan for its devices - we DO NOT use your actual location. It is needed for Bluetooth Low Energy scanning to work, as per Google's requirements. Chargie does not need internet access.
- fixed issue related to lack of access to Hardware Limiter menu for some devices. - if you click "Yes" after hitting the "Back" button and the phone still charges, it will reconnect to Chargie within 10 seconds.

Feedback is most appreciated, as real life tuning of the app can only be done by real users.
