Battery Charge Alarm

Prevent battery overcharging

Battery Charge Alarm is an app that helps you charge your device to a specific battery level. You can set an alarm that will go off when the device is charged to the desired level. This is completely adjustable through an intuitive user interface, matching iOS design guidelines.

Setting an alarm

After opening the app, you can set the slider to the battery percentage at which you want the alarm to sound. Then all you need to do, is tap the 'Set Alarm' button and wait for your device to reach the desired charge level.

Automatically set alarm when plugging in device

If you have removed ads from the app, you can also setup an automation in the Shortcuts app. This allows you to automatically set the battery charge alarm when you plug in your device. Just follow the steps under 'Shortcut integration' below to get this setup.

Shortcuts integration

Before we set up the Shortcuts integration, it's important that you have tapped 'Remove ads' in the Battery app and have successfully paid for this in-app purchase.

In the Settings app, you need to also make sure 'Siri' has been enabled for the Battery app (Settings -> Siri and Search -> Battery -> Enable 'Learn from this App'.

After this, you need to tap the 'Set Alarm' button at least once, before opening the Shortcuts app.
