This is an event that fires when a Cordova application detects the battery has reached the low level threshold.

window.addEventListener("batterylow", yourCallbackFunction, false);


This event that fires when a Cordova application detects the percentage of battery has reached the low battery threshold. This value is device specific.

The batterylow handler will be called with an object that contains two properties:

  • level: The percentage of battery (0-100). (Number)
  • isPlugged: A boolean that represents whether or not the device is plugged in or not. (Boolean)

Typically, you will want to attach an event listener with document.addEventListener once you receive the Cordova 'deviceready' event.

Supported Platforms

  • iOS
  • Android
  • BlackBerry WebWorks (OS 5.0 and higher)
  • Tizen

Quick Example

window.addEventListener("batterylow", onBatteryLow, false);

function onBatteryLow(info) {
    // Handle the battery low event
   	alert("Battery Level Low " + info.level + "%");
