On Android Enthusiasts SE, there are half dozen questions relating to whether a mobile device while charging should be used for gaming, downloading etc. Answering a recent question on this, I cited a technical resource from "Battery University", to say that downloading when charging is not advisable. Subsequently, carried out tests which support a larger perspective that even switching on the device is not recommended (link points to Electrical SE where I posted results to get more inputs-it has extracts from the technical resource as background)
These tests and conclusion stated , would be the the "what I researched or did " part of the question and the question itself would be on lines of "based on this tests and the technical resource , it is not advisable to charge with device on, are there reasons or grounds to the contrary" (haven't got down to the exact words , but that is the essence)
My concern is that the central point being "battery tests", some may view this as "Android Independent" and mark for closure.
Whereas, I feel
a) It has relevance to all Android users, which every device owner has to do (charging) and quite a few if not most switch the device on or use it while charging.
b) The tests do not require any hardware or specialised knowledge and are done using an app from Play Store.
c) this proposed question is not limited to which activity can be done or not as earlier questions addressed, but cover all activities including just switching the cell on.
I have put in a lot of effort in this and wouldn't like to see the question marked as Android Independent or Off Topic. I haven't found a similar question on meta, dealing with this kind of border line case, so request advice how to go about it
I have received a mail from Battery University , in response to a request from me, and similarly from SE Electrical both pointing to my tests being incorrect or interpretations incorrect. To that extent, there is no need need to post now
However, I am not closing the question on my own, since the concern raised merits decision on such cases being reviewed
