We live in a 24/7 world, which gives “work from home” a whole new meaning, but Google seems to think that each of us lives, works, and sleeps at the same time. At least, this is the idea of ​​Pixel phones with adaptive charging. That may need to change.

Adaptive charging emerged with the decline in features in December, allowing Pixel 4 or later phones to charge slowly during sleep and then recharge before the alarm goes off. Since the battery will wear out more quickly when the battery power is kept near 1

00% for a long time, this policy is designed to help extend its life and has been adopted in many other mobile phones.

However, as our competitor previously pointed out in the ironic publication 9to5Google, Google has a fixed operating time. According to the feature help article on the Pixel Phone help page:

When you charge your phone after 9pm and set an event alarm of 5-10 AM, your phone will use adaptive charging. Otherwise, the phone will charge normally.

Of course, not everyone has such a fixed schedule-the three staff on duty, the shift schedule and those who need to travel in advance, we feel you-Google did not fire a manual exception for this, which is a bit shameful programming Even cheating, such as linking it to the bedtime of Google Assistant.

If this policy is not displayed directly on the settings page, the situation is even worse.

Therefore, if you are cautious and conservative about the tax on consumables, but wake up at 5 pm instead of 5 am, adaptive charging will not be able to adapt to you.
