and i learned that the threshold is even at 30%, that's just ridiculous.

Bump. Please allow the user to define the camera upload cutoff battery percentage.

Aggree.  This is INSANE, 30% is WAY more than enough battery.  There should be an option to let it continue all the way down to 0%.  This is causing me a ridiculous amount of trouble right now because there were a bunch of files I needed NOW, so I have to manually upload them all.

Hi all

Thanks for your feedback. I've passed this on to our developers already. Are you using iOS and /or Android?

totally nonsense disable upload below 30%, maybe this is live or die situation if i urgently need to upload those pics at 1% battery left.

please make an option to change it.

I would like to be able to configure the battery percentage at which the upload stops working. I do not understand why this figure would be hard coded into the App.

 I am on Android.

The battery percentage should be optional, the user must be allowed to define what he thinks is a low battery for his own system. Please give us that liberty of choice, 30% on an Android is ridiculous.....

Given that I have an extended (9000mAh) battery, 30% leaves me with 2700mAh left, which is more than some phones even have at 100%!

Dear gods this "feature" infuriates me. I plug my phone in when it has about 10% charge left but Dropbox stops being useful long before that because of this utterly arbitrary restriction.
