Hi,

I was just listening to music on my Nexus One at a sensible volume, when it suddenly blasted a "please charge me" tone out the headphones at full volume. My notification volume is set low, so how can I stop it from doing that again?

What's your ringtone volume set at? It may use that one. 

Thankfully, it's brief.  

But at least you know you're on 15% battery and should maybe go look for some juice.

On the SGS you have separate System and Alert volume settings. Something like the AudioManager widget provides a convenient place to manage all the volume settings in one place..

There's an Alarm Volume option that might be the one. I was just hoping that someone knew for sure so that I could use the thing without living in fear :P

Thanks for your suggestions and I'll post back once I know whether it worked or not.

OK, even with all the volume sliders down, it still plays the "low battery" tone at full volume out the earbuds, and again almost gave me a heart attack. I'll see whether I can file it as a bug.

Are you sure there is no ticked option to link two volume settings. On my Desire I recall seeing an option to link the media volume and notification volumes.

Can't recall what setting this was in. I find notification sounds over headphones very loud too.

edit* This was an option in the "Quick Settings" app I installed, not part of the OS.

There's an option for linking notification and call volume, but it's turned off.

Hi,

I had a thought - and searched through http://google.com/codesearch.

Anywho I found this code:
(in this class TTSNotifierService.java)
public void handleACTION_BATTERY_LOW(Intent intent) {
if (!mPrefs.getBoolean("cbxEnableBatteryLow", true)) return;
String txtOptionsBatteryLowWarningText;
// Preferences
if (mPrefs.getBoolean("cbxOptionsBatteryLowWarningUserDefinedText", true))
txtOptionsBatteryLowWarningText = mPrefs.getString("txtOptionsBatteryLowWarningText", myLanguage.getTxtOptionsBatteryLowWarningText());
else
txtOptionsBatteryLowWarningText = myLanguage.getTxtOptionsBatteryLowWarningText();
speak(txtOptionsBatteryLowWarningText, true);
}

I'm wondering - do you have text to speech installed? If you do - it looks like there is a preference for it.

Cheers,
Julius.
