It was revealed on a Google support page that the Adaptive Charging feature introduced by Google earlier this month to protect battery health will come into play if the criteria are met.
Google has introduced a new feature called Adaptive Charging to help automate a healthier battery charging routine. The new feature is only available on Pixel 4, Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5 phones for now. The Adaptive Charge feature aims to improve battery health by charging slowly over several hours rather than charging the battery quickly.
There are certain criteria for adaptive charging
Adaptive Charging slowly recharges the battery overnight, charging your phone according to your daily habits. When you wake up, you will see 100% of your phone’s charge.
In order for the feature to be active, you must plug in your phone after 21:00. You also need to set an alarm on the phone between 5:00 and 10:00. When these two criteria are met, your phone starts to use the ‘Adaptive Charging’ feature. Otherwise, your phone will be charged normally.
You can manually enable or disable the feature from Settings> Battery> Adaptive Battery> Adaptive Charging.
About the new feature on the Google support page: “Adaptive Charging helps preserve battery health over time by dynamically controlling how fast a Pixel device will charge. In the evening, plug in your phone, set an alarm, and your phone will work the magic of Adaptive Charging.” include statements.
