The amazing self charging Android phone


Some things never change. Both Android phones I’ve owned (Samsung Galaxy S 1 & 2) have this weird bug where the phone turns itself off and when reset by removing the battery the charge level has gone way down.

I woke early this morning to discover the PIN unlock screen so I guessed the phone had rebooted. When I checked the battery levels I saw this. The battery suddenly lost a huge chunk of charge sometime during the night but over the next few hours seemed to recharge itself.

I’d say it’s magic.

  1. I get the same thing on my Galaxy S2, but it only started happening after I installed CM9 on it. Maybe we are unwitting participants in a secretive wireless power-transmission field experiment.
