BattMonX Brings Life to Your DROID X LEDs While Charging

If you have an LED light on your phone, why not get full use out of it?  If you could specify a color on your Droid X or Droid 2 while it was charging, wouldn’t that make life a lot easier?  The Incredible already has this feature built in, but for some reason Motorola decided it wouldn’t matter to users.  They were wrong.  We’d like to introduce you to an app called BattMonX which allows you to customize how your LED lights are displayed while your phone is charging, discharging, has low battery, or even becomes fully charged.

You can find out everything there is to know about BattMonX here.

Oh, it’s free in the market.

    whoops, I meant red at 1-19% charge, but you got the idea.

  • MGZaloom

    Does this have the ability to assign a color to different charge percentages, like terror alerts? That way I can have red at 10-19%, orange at 20-39%, yellow at 40-59%, blue at 60-79%, green at 80-100%.

  • Just downloaded and installed. Battery was already at 30% and I set the low battery threshold for 30% with blinking red. It's blinking red. Set charging color as yellow. Plugged it into the charger. Light is yellow. Screen must be off before you'll see the LED light working. Seems to work ok so far on my Droid X.

    hell yeah

  • ABerry5

    doesn't work on my droid x either.. am I doing something wrong? Will this only work at the low battery threshold kinda like what the droid x does now.. the LED will stay red until your past 15%?

    I've been looking for this for so long, I hate having to turn my screen on everytime I want to see how much my battery has charged

    I'm not rooted


    • MGZaloom

      Exactly, I hate having to turn it on to see the charge level. I'd love to have color coded charge level, exactly like a terror alert 🙂 Does it have that?

  • spaddy

    The name/logo pun is worth it on it's own.

  • Kenneth

    Doesn't work on my droid x

  • Jawshua

    I hope it works other similar programs have screwed with my led. You should also add that it requires No Permissions, which is a huge plus for any app!

  • Brina042

    Works for the Droid Pro also.

    Yet another example of something the phone is capable or doing, but Motorola felt compelled to disable that ability. Absolutely no reason for that. Assigning led colors and actions should be in the phone settings. This locking down needs to stop. Man am I ever pissed off. Its making me into a real grinch

    • spaddy

      don't forget to bring a towel.

    • Joker

      Really? Locked down I dont think when they were developing devices they were like screw peoplee that want the led for charging reasons lets lock that down. Comon man use some common sense they probably just thought it was not abig deal which isnt. Being locked down doesnt mean led so get real man you don't like moto then dont buy there phones scrub

    • iBob

      Not so much locked down IMO as it is just not thinking to begin with. That's why I downloaded a sound profile widget, because apparently MOTO didn't think that anyone would want their media volume to be silenced when they put the phone in silent or vibrate mode. Derrrrrr….

  • FortitudineVincimus

    Tasker can do al of this, and 100x more

  • WhereIsTony

    Will it let us turnit off, I hate that blinking light at night.

    • Sillygirl71

      that's what I want to know!

  • is there an app that lets me change the LED color of certain contacts?

  • what would be nice is a built-in way to change the led to flash different for certain alerts.

    i like that touiteur gives me a blue led for a new mention or dm, but how about like…yellow for an e.mail, green for a text, etc…

    stupid motorola.

    • Rudyt

      Yes, Yes it does.

  • Toochief

    Is it a drain on battery?

    • Kevinmon

      Wtf? It's only when it's charging! Lol.

  • Higher_Ground

    pretty cool. Still waiting for full customization – assigning different colors (not just red/blue/green) to differentiate text messages and emails, or even better, assign a specific color to certain contacts. I've been using Blink to assign an LED flash for missed calls and for low battery, but it only seems to work well for green/red/blue and doesn't differentiate between SMS and email.

    • Justice060

      Try handcent you can do all that there.

    • ABerry5

      try missedcall (it assigns for WAY more than missed calls, but that is the name of the app) sounds like it is EXACTLY what you need

      • tbaybe

        i’ve used this app since day one! LOVE IT

  • Mrpicolas

    merry christmas see santa does listen… Lol :-p

  • Tuantsg

    Ii like

  • sholtkamp

    I love this app… Customization is what it is all about!
