The battery problems are still haunting Samsung, even after the launch Galaxy Note 8. This time, fortunately, batteries are not exploding. But many users are facing a different kind of problem which is directly related to the battery of Galaxy Note 8. Users are facing battery discharge issue on Galaxy Note 8. Meaning, if the battery drains completely and your Note 8 shuts down due to it then it simply refuses to boot up. Even after you have provided a proper power source. The deep discharge issue is not limited to Galaxy Note 8, some users of Galaxy S8 and S8+ have also reported that their devices refused to boot up after their batteries discharged completely.
Samsung has already acknowledged the issue and currently investigating it. However, despite sitting back, and wait for the official fix for deep discharge issue, dr. ketan a senior XDA developer has coded an app which can fix battery discharge issue on Galaxy Note 8. The app is simple yet a brilliant piece of thinking out of the box. dr. ketan’s Deep Discharge Protection Tool simply shuts down your Note 8 automatically as soon as its battery reaches 12%. Meaning, it will prevent your Note 8 from shutting down due to full battery discharge, which is the main cause of the problem.
The same works like a charm on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ and serves exactly the same purpose. It’s worth mentioning here, that Deep Discharge Protection Tool won’t shut down your device without alerting you beforehand. As your device battery is approaching the 12% mark, you will be alerted by beeps which indicates that you need to charge your device real quick.
A question must be popping in your mind that does Deep Discharge Protection Tool work without root? Well, it kind of works but the main purpose of the app won’t be served unless it has root access. The app will give certain beeps definitely, but if your Note 8 is not rooted then device won’t shut down automatically. Moreover, the app runs in the background, thus it needs to stay in the background. Latest Android OS very closely monitor the apps running in the background, therefore, there is quite a good chance that Battery Optimization operation might kill the app from background.
It’d be a good idea to exclude this app from the battery optimizations. In order to do this go to Settings > Device maintenance > Battery > Battery usage, tap on the three-dot menu button and select Optimise battery usage. Select All apps from the drop-down menu at the top and then toggle of Battery optimizations for Deep Discharge Protection Tool.
