Battery has stopped pop-uos?
« on: November 22, 2013, 07:04:14 pm »
Sorry about the misspelling in the subject line. Has anyone had pop-ups that said that the battery has stopped? It pops up twice each time that it has done this, maybe 3 or 4 times, since I got the Fire, prior update & after.

    Battery has stopped?

    I get messages that the battery is getting low.

    It sounds more like a message that an app has stopped.  Do you have a battery app installed?

    I still have enough battery. Just a pop-up 2 times that says the battery stopped. I click off the pop-up and then go back to using it.

    If it says nothing but the battery has stopped, that's a new one on me.  I've never gotten that on any of my Fires....

    Are you using a battery app?  It does sound like an app message.  Also, I found this on the Amazon forum:

    I was getting the "Battery has stopped" message and called Amazon. They had me remove my Battery Pro app. If you have this app you need to remove it.

    Yes, I'm pretty sure it's the app Betsy mentioned. I have it and I get the popup daily.

    Agree it sounds like an app message.

    If you want a battery monitor app that won't give you that message, try GSam:

    That's the one specifically for the Fire; costs a couple of bucks.  There's also a free version; I think it works as well on the Fire: GSam Battery Monitor

    Hermoine's Handbag (Voyage)
    Ed's (Voyage Refurb)
    Bedtime Reading (Oasis 9)
    Godric's Hollow (Basic 7)

    Yes, Toby, check and see if you have the app mentioned--Battery Pro.  Or another battery monitoring app, because it does sound like an app message.  

    Both versions of the GSAM monitor work on the HDX, I've used them on mine.  (Am using the Fire version now, though I need it less since they added the battery indicator to the lock screen.)

    Thanks everyone for your help! Yes, I do have the Battery Pro. I will remove it & see what happens. I just realized during the day that someone mentioned the app. First chance I had tonight to get on & check here. Appreciate all your responses.
