Keep the Screen Off when charging starts or stops.
This app is the ideal companion when using a solar panel or dynamo to charge an Android device, or simply to minimize screen wake when charging starts or stops, such as when plugging into a charger.
The display wakes up whenever a charger is connected or disconnected. This can drain the battery if charging frequently starts and stops, such as when charging using a solar panel, due to fluctuations in the output of a solar panel.
This app minimizes battery drain due to display wake up, resulting in faster and significantly more effective solar charging.
Solar Screen Off includes a home screen widget so you can quickly and easily activate or deactivate the app.
This app was inspired by Wayne Estes' article "Solar battery charging for long cycle tours":
"SolarScreenOff is the missing link to make solar charging of an Android phone truly practical while in motion."
