I have received a copy of 1.02 which is working. Thanks Igor!
Conservative Numbers Trial:
I set to only 3.71
I'd been marking total on-time using Battery Graph for the last couple charges. First one was 2:40 before shut down. Second one was 2:45 before shut down. Both occured over 4-6 days, occasional WiFi use (2 or 3 times at less than 10 minutes), mostly PIM and Docs To Go. Slightly underclocked to 354 to get rid of the whine (although Speedy clocks it at 361). Lots of SolFree solotaire lately, for some reason. It seems to suck juice, too. SolFree and WebPro seem to be the only programs that after quitting them, I get a bounce in battery. I know this is normal with WebPro - anybody else find this with SolFree?
Anyway, at a conservative 3.71, I went from the 2:45 up to 3:15 before shut down. Not spectacular, but a sizeable gain for such a small tweak. Obviously there was no data loss.
Even though it sounds like 3.60 is the magic number, I'll go with 3.65 next charge just get the data.
What would we do without Jungle Mike??
Would be nice to have the application maintain its set value after a warm reset. It appears to revert back to the defalt value
I'm getting this same behavior with 1.03 as PathDoc on my T3. Could someone send *me* a copy of 1.02?
Here is a link to download FullPower 1.02, for those who are having problems with 1.03.
Thanks, Igor, but although the download site indicates that is 1.02, when you actually check the version once it's loaded (on my T3), it says 1.01. I'm guessing their link is bad.
Any other locations?
(I've sent emailed them about the problem)
Ooops, I must have uploaded the wrong zip folder.
Try this one, I'm sure this is the 1.02, because it's installed in my T5.
The readme contained in 1.03 zpi file said something about future versionss may need warm reset to change the value back. So that probably means this is only temporary.
Thanks for another excellent thread & a great find on that Russian web page. Russia seems a place with some handy Palm OS enthusaists....
I have to laugh, I saw this today after finally receiving a P1 Power To Go recharging sled yesterday - maybe I needn't have bothered... (that's a LOL not a 'Razz'...)
On the other hand this could give MEGA battery endurance combining both this app & PTG's spare juice supply....
[By the way if anyone still wants a PTG in the UK, Expansys.com has a very reasonably priced batch of them in at the moment - & at long last - after taking weeks & weeks to get them. They're going at ?22.95 (?25.75 incl del.) They may also be selling them for other countries too for others interested- expansys has loads of different international versions of it's site. Be aware they seem to be going quick - & no I don't work for the co. - or have shares.. ]
junglemike, great discovery!!! You have finally found the battery holy grail!! Good work! I've announced this news in SPUG forums.
Dmitry has come up with a freeware app that works on OS 5
NoBattDialog - great
Here is a link to the above file that works:
I just got a memory error, could not start application error, after a HotSync.
It became a soft reset loop.
I did warm reset and deleted FullPower 1.03.
I re-installed 1.02.......
this looks like a more elegant program than profeo 0.6, which I had some trouble to get it working properly.
(thanks DeanDC10 for the updated link too!)
This Dimitry guy is tremendous
Ohhh, thank God for all you masters of Palmdom... LOL!
So, after 8 pages (we need a sticky ,admins!!!), can any conclusions be reached, as in what version is more stable, what other app needs to be used, voltage settings? I'm using a T3 also... no battery mod yet...
looks like on most T3 Version 1.03 is working great.
Setting seems to be 3,6 V and the app from Dmitry is a nice helper
Profeo 0.6 isn't the latest version available -- I agree that 0.6 sucks. I have 0.7.6, which not only disables the OS warnings, but you can set your warnings where you want as with .6 and have them come up as silent notifications (alert manager) instead of dialog boxes.
Unfortunately I don't know how to point you to a copy of 0.7.6, the developer discusses it on the mytreo.net forums but never provides a link, he tells you to get it on his site on mytreo, which sometimes you can get on and sometimes you can't. I'll try to get a working link and post it later.
EDIT: here's a link to Profeo SystemAlarms 0.7.6. But you have to register as a member of mytreo.net (free) in order to download.
thanks snickersmd, I'll host it for a while. By for a while meaning til my isp cuts me off. But since it's 14k, it should be ok.
Could someone tell me how to set profeo to fire off the battery alarm at a voltage of 3.67? I am using FullPower to set the cut off to 3.65 on my T3.5.
I must admit that the app is not intuitive to me and there are no instructions in the zip.
