Battery Level always 99%

Hi Eric,

The Battery Level is always displayed as 99%

I'm using MetaBase Android App (v2.1.11) on my Samsung S8, Android 8.0.

Sensor Info:
Model - MetaMotionR
Model # - 5
Firmware - 1.3.7
Hardware - 0.2

Is this a bug or am I running incompatible versions?

Cheers,
Faisal

  • Is the board connect to a power source when you are checking?

  • Hi Eric,

    After further testing, I think this may have been the case.
    Thanks,

  • Hi Eric,

    I'm revisiting this issue following further testing.

    With the sensor not connected to a power source it is always reporting 99% Battery Charge. I have been streaming data for 4 hours and the battery charge is still reporting 99%.

    I'm using MetaBase Android App (v2.1.11) on my Samsung S8, Android 8.0 to check and I am also using the following to obtain the battery level:

    newBoard.readBatteryLevelAsync().continueWith(task1 -> {
    getActivity().runOnUiThread(() -> {
    Log.i(LOG_TAG, "Battery Level for: " + newDeviceState.deviceName + " is " + task1.getResult().toString());
    newDeviceState.deviceBatteryLevel = task1.getResult().toString();
    connectedDevices.notifyDataSetChanged();
    });
    return null;
    });

    My Sensor's Information:
    Model - MetaMotionR
    Model # - 5
    Firmware - 1.3.7
    Hardware - 0.2

    Please let me know if I'm doing something wrong here.

    Cheers

    • Try reading the battery voltage level as well as the charge %
    • Are you reading the battery values periodically while streaming the data?
