Battery level always 0 [Android]

When running Sample App from built from source, battery level is always 0. The same when I try to get it within my app. 
I believe SDK version is 1.3.7 [Android]
Device firmware 0.9.0
Hardware 0.2

It doesn't make sense to get '0', since board is on. 


  • Igor,
    That is an issue that we have been seeing for a long time; it is a hardware issue, not a software one (your code is working) and we are attempting to solve it.
  • Hi Laura,
    but if it's a hardware issue, does that mean that my boards will always show 0? Is it possible that you'll come up with firmware fix?

    We are not sure yet if we can fix with a firmware update or if we will be looking for better ICs for the MetaWear battery charging circuit.
  • I would also like to know what battery life expectancy  in standby mode is. Could you clarify that since I don't see actual charge?
