Disable full charge notification

This seems to be an issue with lollipop, as the G3 and the Samsungs have it too.

My phone will sometimes (not every time) beep when it has reached 100% battery. This happens in the middle of the night while I'm sleeping, so it wakes me up.
I have my phone setup so that it will not disturb me. No notifications unless its from a friend. But will sound any clock alarms I have setup.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any way to turn off the battery charge notification?

Some people in other forums state that using the included charger fixes this. It does not. I tried it and it still beeps.
It is also not consistent, as some nights it will not beep.
Turning down the volume all the way down is also not an option, as I need the clock alarm.

I had a GS4, GS5 and now a GS6 Edge.
I've never had that problem, not even with lollipop.
I'm not familiar with LG so I'm not sure if that happens with all of them.
What I know for a fact, is that I can put my phones on vibrate and the alarms will sound.
Have you tried that on your LG?

It's not stock lollipop, it's a manufacturer thing. Both Samsung and LG implement this. Not sure of others. Google's stock software doesn't do it.

I hope this reaches some manufacturer ears. LG G4 in my case. I don't need to know when my phone is full unless I check. I don't even think unplugging saves any energy. Unplugging the phone does not unplug the charger which has standby energy usage. I know standby adds up but if that is the problem the solution is send a notification to the charger to turn down. That would add $10 max to the charger but probably more failures due to not keeping it simple.
I need to be notified of important things, not the battery is full. I need to keep the phone on charge. This Saturday I failed to do that and got to zero when my wife was in a doctors office. Lot of stress. I don't need any stress for filling up my phone. Not one micro-second, ever. Bad plan.

I certainly do NOT need my phone informing me that it is full at 2am. This didn't happen until the last update. Now it beeps every time I plug it in or unplug it. And, when it is full. AND NOW, when the charger isn't up to the usual speed (because I'm using a different cord), which is REALLY ANNOYING WHEN I'M DRIVING.
I've tried turning all the notifications off, but this one still beeps.
Another phone call to Verizon is due.

Yes, happens to me all the time, wakes me up and makes me so mad I can't get back to sleep. Agree with the plug/unplug notification too. What brain surgeon came up with this idea? They obviously don't charge their phones at night.

switz, can you re-link? The one you posted takes us to an invalid thread.

Sorry, I have no idea what the original post was... I'd say it's been removed.

However, as a not-so-easy solution, if you have rooted your phone the tweaksbox for the LG G4 seems to have the ability to disable the notification: [XPOSED](1.1 RC/1.5B1)G4 TweaksBox(THEME,Cal… | LG G4 (look at "hide full battery notification")

I never thought that this would affect anyone so negatively lol, maybe I'm just a heavy sleeper.

There should be an option in the battery settings to disable the notification for battery full on the G4, at least there is on mine.

There's also an option to disable the breathing charging light, which I've done on occasion because I have trouble sleeping sometimes without complete darkness.

You might be able to download a notification manager as well, give it admin permissions(make sure its legit and you trust it), it night give you control over certain things like that.

I actually totally just figured out how you can fix this.

On the G4 when you adjust the ringer volume you can press a button to expand your volumes. I attached a screenshot, if you turn down system sounds all the way, it should disable the battery notifications. It did for my phone. :)

I'm having a similar problem with my G4. I put it on charge at night and switch it off (proper power off, not just locked), but every morning I find it has switched itself back on again. I can only assume that this is due to the full charge notification. Does anyone know a way to disable this without having to root the phone (not long had it and don't want to void the warranty just yet).
Thanks
Geraint

I just tried Adam's suggestion and it didn't work. I disabled the notification volume and put the phone on the charger. When the battery indicator reached 100% the phone made the two-pip notification sound indicating full battery, and the full battery message appeared in the notification menu that appears when sliding the finger down from the top of the phone.

My phone is the LG G4, Android 6.0, kernel version 3.10.84, build number MRA58K, software version V20h-EUR-XX.

It's really idiotic of LG to not give us a way of turning off the battery-full sound notification. It means I can't charge the phone while sleeping. And I don't give a f$%&! that I'm stressing the battery or using more electricity than necessary.

Funny I was always wondering why my G4 did not do this. I think it is because I am using Nova launcher. I would actually like the ability to have an audible ques for full charge status.

On mine if you turn down the "touch feedback and system" volume to zero you won't hear the battery full sound.

I use Tasker to turn off the notification light and set the System volume to zero during the night so I can charge at night and no sounds or lights bother my sleep. Works every night.

Hit the volume rocker. You will see the volume slider. To the right is the gear. Open that and it's one of the sliders in there.
