Hands-on: Battery Charge Limit for rooted devices keeps your phone's battery healthy

Those of us here at Android Police have a lot of phones, and that's putting it lightly. It's not just because we like basking in the light of a dozen tiny differently calibrated displays (though that is one of the unofficial perks). We actually need different hardware and software configurations on hand to test and compare against. Between device compatibility for new apps, checking APK releases for differences, and test environments, our desks end up being monuments/graves to recent phone history. Obviously, those phones are no use to us if they aren't charged. But, keeping them continuously topped-up isn't very good for the batteries, either.

[Deal Alert] Get a 26,800mAh Anker battery with 3 USB ports and fast recharge speeds for just $41.99 ($18 off) from Amazon

These days, it's hard to survive without external power for our smartphones. The 3000mAh or so units that are inside can't last throughout all the browsing, gaming, picture-taking, and media consumption that many of us do every day. But if you don't already have a battery pack (or if you just need a bigger one), Amazon has the Anker PowerCore 26800 that stores a whopping, you guessed it, 26,800mAh of juice for only $41.99.

It's still early days, and this more recent filing doesn't mean that the case has advanced, merely that the attorneys involved have decided to expand and tweak things after the initial filing. Those who are participating in the suit have a long way to go.
