  Battery life is a perennial user concern. To extend battery life,
  Android continually adds new features and optimizations to help the
  platform optimize the off-charger behavior of applications and
  devices.

not doing that risks sudden unexpected shutdowns and potential data
loss, which is *worse*.

  A number of Nexus 6P owners have reported an alarming battery problem
  with their phones as of Android 7.0 being released for the handset,
  which causes the phone to power down when the battery gauge still  
  shows anywhere from 10 to 60% battery remaining.
