    Just curious if you even check on battery life or just flash away.

    Do you always flash plugged into power or do you flash untethered.

    If you swap kernels do you worry about battery life the same as you do when swapping roms?

    Obviously making changes at 100% charge is better than 40% charge. Is there a lower limit where you'll power up before making the attempt?

    Also...ever been stuck in a boot loop due to low battery?

    I never check battery life, but I rarely let my phone drop past 50%. I'd probably flash at 30%, but not lower than that. I dont mess around with kernel swapping too much, so that question isnt for me.

    I say never less than 50%.....that way you know you're safe from battery issues if you are in recovery or get into a boot loop for some reason. Phone isn't charging in these situations and if you're already low you're not going to last long.
