    It's a phony alert. There is no virus that can infect a battery. The "real" virus is the one the alert was hoping you'd download and install. If you didn't download and install anything, you're safe. If you ever see that alert again, go to Application settings and force stop whatever app you see it in. This BS alert is becoming all too common.
