What’s the percentage? You haven’t perchance hit the ’smart’ 80% charge limit have you? Not really new to 13.4, I think, but bit us here recently.

yes, this i'm aware of, but why does it stop charging at 80% during a time that does not fall under my "usual" times. besides - only on a wireless charger - when i plug it in - it charges fine.

There's no consistent answer that I’ve found, but similar questions have been raised since the feature came out. You must have a consistent regular schedule. Change it for even a day and it can affect the feature. Some wireless charges apparently work and some don’t. Even some power blocks for wired work and some don’t. Bottom line for me is I’ve got it turned on but don’t pay attention to it.

hm, perhaps i should turn this feature off then. i used it for a period of time to charge overnight, but it ticked me off that it stops at 80% until 5 or 6 am, while i get up and my goddamn iphone alarm clock is set to 9:03am - you'd think this incredible smart system would know this... anyhow, i stopped doing this since this system wasn't even using the info at hand properly... eh)

thanks for replying though - this is probably the issue!
