Battery Full [Q] Auto enable ultra power saving mode??? at %

Hi there

Just got GS5, ultra power saving mode is sweet however is there a way to automatically turn it on at a certain % of remaining battery (e.g. at 10% it turns on)

ALL help and advice welcome

It only takes one finger swipe and touch to activate it. Don't be too lazy now.

The reason I ask is that if I leave my phone out overnight after a night out etc I don't want to wake up in the morning to a dead battery. Instead having it auto switch will be life saving ..ha

I'm not 100% sure but I'm assuming you could probably create a Tasker profile to trigger UPSM at a specific battery percentage.

I have very little experience with Tasker though so someone correct me if I'm wrong.

Unfortunately, Tasker has no possibilty to enable UPSM
The Tasker has possibility to lunch external script or application, but the problem is that there is no script which can start UPSM.

Is somebody found a way to do it? May-be another ways?

Somebody on reddit has been working with Tasker to do this. I can't post the link since I haven't posted more than 10 times, so do a google search for "Figured out how to activate Ultra power saver mode" reddit and tasker. It should come up.

I've tried it and had some success with it, but having some issues with the second tap command to activate. Seems like I had to up the timeout to something like 15 seconds.

Good luck.

Yes! You can
Using tasker of course

1. You have to put U.power saving somewhere on the visible part of Notification panel - pic 1
2. Create profile - State - Power - Battery level - (from 0 to 10 for example) - pic 2
3. Create new task: - pic 3
1. Display - Status Bar - Expanded
2. Script - Run Shell - Command - input tap x y (where x y are coordinates of the buttons you want to tap), check Use Root option
3. Script - Run Shell - Command - input tap x y (button OK on the UPSM menu), check Use Root option - pic 4
In my case x=972 y=226 and
x=790 y=1600

You have to check your x and y coordinates by turning Show pointer location in Developer options

And now you will have Ultra Power Saving Mode when your battery reaches 10 %

I would like this feature as well.. makes sense to me. I mean if the camera can stop the flash from working on low battery then enabling UPSM at low battery should be an option
