    BACKGROUND



    [0002] At present, mobile phones, tablet computers, etc. have become an indispensable part of our daily life, bringing great convenience to our life. However, due to the limited service life of internal electronic components, after a period of time, leakage (that is, electric current leakage) may occur to the internal electronic components due to aging, thus causing leakage in the mobile phones, the tablet computers, etc.; alternatively, leakage may occur to the internal electronic components due to external environmental factors or human factors, for example, the mobile phones, the tablet computers, etc. have been in a humid environment for a long time or accidentally dropped or hit, which may also result in the leakage in the mobile phones, the tablet computers, etc. However, when the leakage occurs, most users are not aware of it, causing the mobile phones, the tablet computers, etc. to completely discharge without the user's awareness, which seriously affects people's life.

    [0010] According to the method for leakage detection for a terminal device of the implementations of the present disclosure, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter, the first set of power-consuming components of the terminal device is powered by the adapter and the second set of power-consuming components is powered by the battery of the terminal device. In this case, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, the information indicative of power consumption of the battery is detected and whether the terminal device experiences leakage is determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery. Therefore, whether the terminal device experiences leakage can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery.

    [0011] In addition, the method for leakage detection for a terminal device of the above implementations of the present disclosure can also have the following additional operations.

    [0012] In an implementation, the information indicative of power consumption of the battery is obtained by detecting at least one of voltage variation of the battery and current consumption of the battery.

When the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with an adapter, a first set of power-consuming components of the terminal device is powered by the adapter and a second set of power-consuming components is powered by a battery of the terminal device. In this case, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, information indicative of power consumption of the battery is detected and whether the terminal device experiences leakage is determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery.

The terminal device includes multiple power-consuming components divided into a first set and a second set.

The terminal device further includes a memory, a processor, and a control program of the terminal device stored in the memory and capable of running on the processor. When executed by the processor, the control program of the terminal device is configured to execute operations of the method for leakage detection for a terminal device.

    [0020] According to the terminal device of the implementations of the present disclosure, by executing the foregoing method for leakage detection for a terminal device, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter, the first set of power-consuming components of the terminal device is powered by the adapter and the second set of power-consuming components is powered by the battery of the terminal device. In this case, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, information indicative of power consumption of the battery is detected and whether the terminal device experiences leakage is determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery. Therefore, whether the terminal device experiences leakage can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery.

The terminal device includes multiple power-consuming components divided into a first set and a second set.

The apparatus includes an obtaining module and a control module. The obtaining module is configured to obtain information indicative of power consumption of the battery. The control module is configured to determine whether the terminal device experiences leakage according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery, on condition that the second set of power-consuming components is in a non-working state, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter.

In this case, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, the control module determines whether the terminal device experiences leakage according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery obtained by the obtaining module. Therefore, whether leakage has occurred to the terminal device can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery.

    [0023] In addition, the apparatus for leakage detection for a terminal device of the above implementations of the present disclosure can also have the following additional configurations.

    [0032] Implementations of the present disclosure will be further described below with reference to the accompanying drawings, where the same or similar reference numerals denote the same or similar elements or elements with the same or similar functions. It will be appreciated that the implementations described hereinafter with reference to the accompanying drawings are illustrative and for the purpose of explanation rather than restriction of the disclosure.

    [0033] A method for leakage detection for a terminal device, a non-transitory computer readable storage medium, a terminal device, an apparatus for leakage detection for a terminal device, and a terminal device with the apparatus for leakage detection according to the implementations of the present disclosure are described below with reference to the accompanying drawings.

    [0034] It should be noted that, in implementations of the present disclosure, the "terminal device" can include but is not limited to a device configured via a wired line and/or a wireless interface to receive/transmit communication signals. Examples of the wired line may include, but are not limited to, at least one of a public switched telephone network (PSTN), a digital subscriber line (DSL), a digital cable, a direct connection cable, and/or another data connection line or network connection line. Examples of the wireless interface may include, but are not limited to, a wireless interface with a cellular network, a wireless local area network (WLAN), a digital television network (such as a digital video broadcasting-handheld (DVB-H) network), a satellite network, an AM-FM broadcast transmitter, and/or with another communication terminal. A communication terminal configured to communicate via a wireless interface may be called a "wireless communication terminal", a "wireless terminal", and/or a "mobile terminal". Examples of a mobile terminal may include, but are not limited to, a satellite or cellular telephone, a personal communication system (PCS) terminal capable of cellular radio telephone, data processing, fax, and/or data communication, a personal digital assistant (PDA) equipped with radio telephone, pager, Internet/Intranet access, web browsing, notebook, calendar, and/or global positioning system (GPS) receiver, and/or other electronic devices equipped with radio telephone capability such as a conventional laptop or a handheld receiver.

    [0035] In implementations of the present disclosure, as illustrated in FIG. 1, the terminal device 100 includes multiple power-consuming components 110 divided into a first set and a second set. When the terminal device 100 is fully charged and remains coupled with an adapter 200, the first set of power-consuming components 111 is powered by the adapter 200 and the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by a battery 120 of the terminal device 100.

    [0036] In an implementation of the present disclosure, the first set of power-consuming components 111 includes a processor and a control integrated circuit (IC) of the terminal device 100, and the second set of power-consuming components 112 includes a communication network component and a display component of the terminal device 100.

    [0037] That is to say, after the terminal device 100 is fully charged, the adapter 200 stops charging the terminal device 100. At this time, if a user does not pull out the adapter 200, main power-consuming components of the terminal device 100 have two power supply circuits. Apart of the power-consuming components, for example, a communication network component composed of a 2G/4G radio frequency power amplifier (simplified as 2G/4G PA) and the like, a liquid crystal display component, etc., are powered by the battery 120. The remaining power-consuming components, for example, a central processing unit (CPU), a control chip, and the like of the terminal device 100, are directly powered by the adapter 200. The manner in which the components are powered can be set according to different terminal devices 100.

    [0038] As shown in FIG. 1, in addition to the multiple power-consuming components 110 and the battery 120, the terminal device 100 further includes a charging interface 130, a charging module 140, and a charging control switch 150. The charging interface 130 can be a wired charging interface or a wireless charging interface. In the case that the charging interface 130 is a wired charging interface, the charging interface 130 can be a universal serial bus (USB) interface, through which the terminal device 100 can be coupled with the adapter 200. The USB interface can be a normal USB interface or a micro USB interface. In the case that the charging interface 130 is a wireless charging interface, the charging interface 130 can be a wireless power receiving coil. The wireless power receiving coil matches (in other words, cooperates) a wireless power transmitting coil in the adapter 200 to receive power through electromagnetic induction. Alternatively, the charging interface 130 can be a receiving antenna. The receiving antenna matches a transmitting antenna in the adapter 200 to receive power through radio waves. The charging interface 130 can also be a coupling electrode or a coil with the same vibration frequency, etc., which can be chosen according to actual needs.

    [0039] The charging module 140 can include a charging circuit or a charging control circuit. The charging circuit has one end coupled with the charging interface 130, and the other end respectively coupled with the multiple power-consuming components 110 and the battery 120 through the charging control switch 150. The charging control circuit is respectively coupled with the charging interface 130, the charging circuit, the charging control switch 150, the battery 120, and the processor of the terminal device 100. The charging control circuit is configured to detect a voltage of the battery 120 to determine whether the battery 120 needs to be charged. When the battery 120 needs to be charged, if the terminal device 100 is in a power-on state and the user connects the adapter 200 to the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit will generate a charging interrupt signal to the processor of the terminal device 100. After receiving the charging interrupt signal, the processor of the terminal device 100 executes a charging procedure and outputs a charging control signal to the charging control circuit. According to the charging control signal, the charging control circuit controls the charging control switch 150, so as to charge the battery 120 and power the multiple power-consuming components 110 respectively via the charging circuit, and meanwhile the charging control circuit detects in real time a charging state of the battery 120. When the battery 120 is fully charged, the charging control circuit controls the charging control switch 150, to stop charging the battery 120, and the charging control circuit further determines whether the adapter 200 is pulled out of the charging interface 130. If the adapter 200 is pulled out of the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit controls the charging circuit to stop working, and controls, through the charging control switch 150, the battery 120 to power the multiple power-consuming components 110; otherwise, the charging control circuit controls the charging circuit to continue to power the first set of power-consuming components 111 of the multiple power-consuming components 110, whereas the charging control circuit controls the battery 120 to power the second set of power-consuming components 112.

    [0040] If the terminal device 100 is in a power-off state, when the user connects the adapter 200 to the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit starts to detect or measure the voltage of the battery 120, to determine whether the battery 120 needs to be charged. If so, the charging control circuit controls the charging circuit to work and power the first set of power-consuming components 111 of the multiple power-consuming components 110 by controlling the charging control switch 150, and meanwhile the charging control circuit generates a reset signal and a charging interrupt signal to the processor of the terminal device 100. The subsequent charging process is the same as that in the case where the terminal device 100 is in the power-on state, which will not be described in detail herein. As such, charging of the battery 120 and powering of the multiple power-consuming components 110 can be achieved through the charging module 140. The charging control switch 150 is a switch circuit composed of electronic switch components. For example, the charging control switch 150 may be a metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) transistor. The MOS transistor has a first end coupled with an anode of the charging circuit and an anode of the first set of power-consuming components 111 respectively, a second end coupled with an anode of the battery 120 and an anode of the second set of power-consuming components 112 respectively, and a control end coupled with the charging control circuit. When the charging control circuit detects that the adapter 200 is coupled with the charging interface 130 and the battery 120 needs to be charged, the charging control circuit controls the MOS transistor to be in an ON state. In this case, the charging circuit charges the battery 120 and powers the first set of power-consuming components 111 and the second set of power-consuming components 112. When the charging control circuit detects that the adapter 200 is coupled with the charging interface 130 but the battery 120 does not need to be charged, the charging control circuit controls the MOS transistor to be in an OFF state. In this case, while the first set of power-consuming components 111 is still powered by the charging circuit, the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by the battery 120. When the charging control circuit detects that the adapter 200 is not coupled with the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit controls the MOS transistor to be in an ON state. In this case, the battery 120 powers the first set of power-consuming components 111 and the second set of power-consuming components 112.

    [0041] That is to say, during charging of the terminal device 100, the first set of power-consuming components 111 and the second set of power-consuming components 112 are powered by the adapter 200; when the terminal device 100 is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter 200, the first set of power-consuming components 111 is powered by the adapter 200 and at the same time the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by the battery 120; when the terminal device 100 is disconnected from the adapter 200, the first set of power-consuming components 111 and the second set of power-consuming components 112 are powered by the battery 120. Since the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by the battery 120 whereas the first set of power-consuming components 111 is powered by the adapter 200 when the terminal device 100 is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter 200, if the second set of power-consuming components 112 is not working, whether the second set of power-consuming components 112 experiences leakage can be determined according to power consumption of the battery 120, specifically, information indicative of power consumption of the battery 120, thereby determining that leakage in the terminal device 100 is caused by the leakage in the second set of power-consuming components 112. In addition, as the first set of power-consuming components 111 is powered by the adapter 200, power-consuming components for leakage detection for the terminal device 100 can be distributed into the first set of power-consuming components 111, that is, the power-consuming components for leakage detection for the terminal device 100 are powered by the adapter 200. In this way, not only can serious leakage in the terminal device caused by the second set of power-consuming components 112 be detected, but also slight leakage in the terminal device can be detected, thereby ensuring detection reliability.

    [0042] FIG. 2 is a flowchart illustrating a method for leakage detection for a terminal device according to an implementation of the present disclosure. As illustrated in FIG. 2, the method includes the following.

    [0043] At S1, information indicative of power consumption of a battery is obtained.

    [0044] In some implementations, the information indicative of power consumption of the battery is obtained by detecting at least one of voltage variation of the battery and current consumption of the battery. The current consumption of the battery refers to a current in a loop where the battery is arranged when the battery consumes power.

    [0045] In an implementation, a voltage of the battery can be detected through a voltage detecting circuit, and then the information indicative of power consumption of the battery can be obtained according to the voltage variation of the battery. For example, within a time period, if the voltage of the battery drops quickly, it indicates that power consumption of the battery is serious; if the voltage of the battery drops slowly, it indicates that power consumption of the battery is slow; if nearly no change occurs to the voltage of the battery, it indicates that there is nearly no power consumption in the battery. Alternatively, the current consumption of the battery can be detected through a current detecting circuit, and then the information indicative of power consumption of the battery can be obtained according to the current consumption of the battery. For example, if the current consumption of the battery is great, power consumption of the battery is serious; if the current consumption of the battery is small, power consumption of the battery is slow; if the current consumption of the battery is tiny or is approximately zero, there is nearly no power consumption in the battery. Alternatively, the voltage of the battery is detected through the voltage detecting circuit and the current consumption of the battery is detected through the current detecting circuit, and then the information indicative of power consumption of the battery can be obtained according to the voltage variation of the battery and the current consumption of the battery, thereby ensuring accuracy of the power consumption obtained.

    [0046] The voltage detecting circuit and the current detecting circuit can adopt a circuit configuration illustrated in FIG. 3. As illustrated in FIG. 3, the voltage detecting circuit 311 includes a first resistor R1 and a second resistor R2. The first resistor R1 has one end coupled with an anode of the battery 120. The second resistor R2 has one end coupled with the other end of the first resistor R1 at a first node. The second resistor R2 has the other end grounded. The first node serves as an output end of the voltage detecting circuit 311.

    [0047] The current detecting circuit 312 includes an eighth resistor R8, a ninth resistor R9, a tenth resistor R10, a first amplifier X1, and an eleventh resistor R11. The eighth resistor R8 has one end coupled with a cathode of the battery 120, and the other end coupled with the anode of the battery 120 through the second set of power-consuming components 112. The eighth resistor R8 is a current detecting resistor. The ninth resistor R9 has one end coupled with the one end of the eighth resistor R8, and the tenth resistor R10 has one end coupled with the other end of the eighth resistor R8. The first amplifier X1 has a negative input end coupled with the other end of the ninth resistor R9 and a positive input end coupled with the other end of the tenth resistor R10. The eleventh resistor R11 is coupled between the negative input end of the first amplifier X1 and an output end of the first amplifier X1, and the output end of the first amplifier X1 serves as an output end of the current detecting circuit 312.

    [0048] As illustrated in FIG. 3, when voltage obtained via a control module through the voltage detecting circuit 311 is almost constant (considering detection error), and current obtained by the control module through the current detecting circuit 312 is approximately zero (considering the detection error), the battery 120 has no power consumption. However, when the voltage obtained by the control module through the voltage detecting circuit 311 decreases continuously, or the current consumption obtained by the control module through the current detecting circuit 312 is greater than zero (considering the detection error, a value approximate to zero is adopted), the battery 120 has power consumption.

    [0049] It should be noted that, the circuit configuration illustrated in FIG. 3 is merely illustrative. In implementations of the present disclosure, other circuit configurations may also be adopted, which are not detailed herein. In addition, when the information indicative of power consumption of the battery is obtained according to the voltage variation of the battery, the current detecting circuit 312 in FIG. 3 can be omitted. When the information indicative of power consumption of the battery is obtained according to the current consumption of the battery, the voltage detecting circuit 311 in FIG. 3 can be omitted. That is, battery power consumption detection can also be achieved with only one parameter, that is, voltage variation or current consumption.

    [0050] At S2, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter, if the second set of power-consuming components is in a non-working state, whether the terminal device experiences leakage is determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery.

    [0051] In an implementation, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, normally, the battery has no power consumption. However, if power consumption is detected to occur to the battery, the terminal device experiences leakage. For example, when power consumption of the battery is obtained according to the voltage variation of the battery and the current consumption of the battery, if the voltage of the battery is detected to drop continuously or the current consumption of the battery is detected to be continuously greater than zero and remains in a stable state (i.e., the battery has continuous and stable current consumption), determine that components coupled with the battery experience leakage, and further determine that the terminal device experiences leakage.

    [0052] According to the method for leakage detection for a terminal device provided herein, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter and the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, whether the terminal device experiences leakage can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery, thereby effectively solving the problem that the user is not aware of the leakage in the terminal device.

    [0053] In an implementation, when the terminal device is in a low-power state, the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state. In addition, the low-power state includes a screen-off standby state and a power-off state.

    [0054] The "screen-off standby state" means that the display component of the terminal device is in a screen-off state, and the communication network component and the like are in the non-working state with only core components (e.g., the processor and the control IC) of the system of the terminal device in a working state. The "power-off state" means that all components of the terminal device are in the non-working state, that is, the terminal device is in a state with no power consumption ("no-power consumption state" for short). In short, whether the terminal device is in the screen-off standby state or in the power-off state, when the terminal device is fully charged and coupled with the adapter, the battery of the terminal device is in the no-power consumption state. Therefore, inaccuracy of leakage detection due to the power consumption of battery-powered components, such as the display component, the communication network component, and the like, can be effectively avoided.

    [0055] For example, as illustrated in FIG. 1, in general, when the terminal device has no power or low power, the user will choose to charge the terminal device. When the terminal device 100 is in the power-on state, if the user connects the adapter 200 to the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit will generate a charging interrupt signal to the processor of the terminal device 100. After receiving the charging interrupt signal, the processor of the terminal device 100 executes a charging procedure and outputs a charging control signal to the charging control circuit. The charging control circuit controls the charging circuit and the charging control switch 150 (e.g. the MOS transistor) according to the charging control signal, so as to charge the battery 120 and power the multiple power-consuming components 110, and meanwhile the charging control circuit detects in real time the charging state of the battery 120.

    [0056] When the battery 120 is fully charged and the charging interface 130 is coupled with the adapter 200, the charging control circuit controls the charging circuit and the charging control switch 150, so as to continue to power the first set of power-consuming components 111 through the charging circuit, whereas the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by the battery 120. At the same time, the charging control circuit transmits a leakage detection signal to the processor of the terminal device 100, and the processor of the terminal device 100 starts executing a leakage detection procedure.

    [0057] During execution of the leakage detection procedure, whether the terminal device 100 is in the screen-off standby state is detected, that is, whether the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state is detected, and if so, the leakage detection for the terminal device 100 is started. At this time, the voltage variation of the battery and/or the current consumption of the battery are obtained, and then whether the terminal device experiences leakage is determined according to the voltage variation of the battery and/or the current consumption of the battery. For example, within a time period, if the voltage of the battery is detected to decrease continuously, it indicates that the terminal device experiences leakage; for another example, if the battery is detected to have a continuous and stable current consumption, it indicates that the terminal device experiences leakage; for yet another example, if the voltage of the battery is detected to continuously decrease or the battery is detected to have a continuous and stable current consumption, it indicates that the terminal device experiences leakage.

    [0058] When the terminal device 100 is in the power-off state, if the user connects the adapter 200 to the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit starts to detect the voltage of the battery 120, to determine whether the battery 120 needs to be charged. If so, the charging control circuit controls the charging circuit to work and power the first set of power-consuming components 111 of the multiple power-consuming components 110 by controlling the charging control switch 150, and meanwhile the charging control circuit generates a reset signal and a charging interrupt signal to the processor of the terminal device 100. The processor of the terminal device 100 is started after receiving the reset signal, and executes a charging procedure according to the charging interrupt signal. The subsequent charging process and the leakage detection process are the same as those in the case where the terminal device is in the screen-off standby state, and will not be described in detail herein.

    [0059] As a result, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, whether the terminal device experiences leakage can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery.

    [0060] In addition, in an implementation, the method further includes the following. The terminal device is controlled to display the information indicative of power consumption of the battery, and the terminal device is controlled to send out leakage prompt information upon determining that the terminal device experiences leakage.

    [0061] For example, after the leakage detection of the terminal device is completed, a result regarding leakage detection can also be notified to the user, so that the user can be informed of a present condition of the terminal device in time. For example, after the leakage detection is completed, if there is no leakage in the terminal device, as illustrated in FIG. 4a, the information indicative of power consumption of the battery can be displayed through the display component, and the user can be notified of no leakage in the terminal device and the user can feel free to use the terminal device; if the terminal device experiences leakage, as illustrated in FIG. 4b, the information indicative of power consumption of the battery can be displayed through the display component, and the user can be informed that the terminal device experiences leakage and be reminded to get the terminal device repaired in time. At the same time, the user can also be reminded by flashing of an indicator lamp on the terminal device, for example, control the indicator lamp to flash on red at a high frequency, or the user can be reminded through a speech function of the terminal device.

    [0062] In normal circumstances, when the user receives the above prompt information, the user will get the terminal device inspected and repaired at a corresponding branch of service. However, some users, without awareness of seriousness of the problem when they receive the message, will probably ignore the prompt message and continue to use the terminal device as usual. Therefore, in this case, the user can be reminded multiple times, for example, the user can be reminded at least three times. If the user still does not deal with the problem after being reminded multiple times, some functions of the terminal device can be restricted in this case. For instance, when the leakage of the terminal device determined according to the voltage variation of the battery is not serious, some components of risk (such as capacitors) may be restricted. However, when the leakage of the terminal device is serious, the terminal device is directly controlled to be powered off and unable to be launched.

    [0063] In conclusion, according to the method for leakage detection for a terminal device provided herein, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter, the first set of power-consuming components of the terminal device is powered by the adapter and the second set of power-consuming components is powered by the battery of the terminal device. In this case, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, the information indicative of power consumption of the battery is detected and whether the terminal device experiences leakage is determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery. Therefore, whether the terminal device experiences leakage can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery, thereby effectively solving the problem that the user is not aware of the leakage in the terminal device. It is also possible to realize timely alert and repair, thus avoiding safety hazard caused by leakage and the problem of short duration of use, which can greatly improve performance of the terminal device in use.

    [0064] In addition, implementations of the present disclosure provide a non-transitory computer readable storage medium. The non-transitory computer readable storage medium is configured to store computer programs which, when executed by a processor, are operable with the processor to execute the above method for leakage detection for a terminal device.

    [0065] With aid of the non-transitory computer readable storage medium provided herein, the non-transitory computer readable storage medium is configured to store the computer programs which, when executed by the processor, are operable with the processor to execute the above method for leakage detection for a terminal device. When the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with an adapter, a first set of power-consuming components of the terminal device is powered by the adapter and a second set of power-consuming components is powered by a battery of the terminal device. In this case, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, information indicative of power consumption of the battery is detected and whether the terminal device experiences leakage is determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery. Therefore, whether the terminal device experiences leakage can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery.

    [0066] Furthermore, implementations of the present disclosure provide a terminal device. As illustrated in FIG. 5, the terminal device 100 includes multiple power-consuming components 110 divided into a first set and a second set. When the terminal device 100 is fully charged and remains coupled with an adapter, the first set of power-consuming components 111 is powered by the adapter and the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by a battery 120 of the terminal device 100. The terminal device 100 further includes a memory 160, a processor 170, and a control program of the terminal device 100 stored in the memory 160 and operable with the processor 170. When executed by the processor 170, the control program of the terminal device 100 is configured to execute operations of the above method for leakage detection for a terminal device.

    [0067] With aid of the terminal device provided herein, by executing the foregoing method for leakage detection for a terminal device, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter, the first set of power-consuming components of the terminal device is powered by the adapter and the second set of power-consuming components is powered by the battery of the terminal device. In this case, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, the information indicative of power consumption of the battery is detected and whether the terminal device experiences leakage is determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery. Therefore, whether the terminal device experiences leakage can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery.

    [0068] FIG. 6 is a block diagram illustrating an apparatus for leakage detection for a terminal device according to an implementation of the present disclosure.

    [0069] In an implementation, as illustrated in FIG. 1, the terminal device 100 includes multiple power-consuming components 110 divided into a first set and a second set. When the terminal device 100 is fully charged and remains coupled with an adapter 200, the first set of power-consuming components 111 is powered by the adapter 200 and the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by a battery 120 of the terminal device 100.

    [0070] In an implementation of the present disclosure, the first set of power-consuming components 111 includes a processor and a control IC of the terminal device 100, and the second set of power-consuming components 112 includes a communication network component and a display component of the terminal device 100.

    [0071] That is to say, after the terminal device 100 is fully charged, the adapter 200 stops charging the terminal device 100. At this time, if a user does not pull out the adapter 200, main power-consuming components of the terminal device 100 have two power supply circuits. Apart of the power-consuming components, for example, a communication network component composed of a 2G/4G radio frequency power amplifier (simplified as 2G/4G PA), a liquid crystal display component, etc., are powered by the battery 120. The remaining power-consuming components, for example, a CPU, a control chip, and the like of the terminal device 100, are directly powered by the adapter 200. The manner in which the components are powered can be customized according to different terminal devices 100.

    [0072] As shown in FIG. 1, in addition to the multiple power-consuming components 110 and the battery 120, the terminal device 100 includes a charging interface 130, a charging module 140, and a charging control switch 150. The charging interface 130 can be a wired charging interface or a wireless charging interface. In the case that the charging interface 130 is a wired charging interface, the charging interface 130 can be a USB interface, through which the terminal device 100 can be coupled with the adapter 200. The USB interface can be a normal USB interface or a micro USB interface. In the case that the charging interface 130 is a wireless charging interface, the charging interface 130 can be a wireless power receiving coil. The wireless power receiving coil matches a wireless power transmitting coil in the adapter 200 to receive power through electromagnetic induction. Alternatively, the charging interface 130 can be a receiving antenna. The receiving antenna matches a transmitting antenna in the adapter 200 to receive power through radio waves. The charging interface 130 can also be a coupling electrode or a coil with the same vibration frequency, etc., which can be chosen according to actual needs.

    [0073] The charging module 140 can include a charging circuit or a charging control circuit. The charging circuit has one end coupled with the charging interface 130, and the other end respectively coupled with the multiple power-consuming components 110 and the battery 120 through the charging control switch 150. The charging control circuit is coupled with the charging interface 130, the charging circuit, the charging control switch 150, the battery 120, and the processor of the terminal device 100 respectively. The charging control circuit is configured to detect a voltage of the battery 120 to determine whether the battery 120 needs to be charged. When the battery 120 needs to be charged, if the terminal device 100 is in a power-on state and the user connects the adapter 200 to the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit will generate a charging interrupt signal to the processor of the terminal device 100. After receiving the charging interrupt signal, the processor of the terminal device 100 executes a charging procedure and outputs a charging control signal to the charging control circuit. According to the charging control signal, the charging control circuit uses the charging circuit and the charging control switch 150 to charge the battery 120 and power the multiple power-consuming components 110 respectively, and meanwhile the charging control circuit detects in real time a charging state of the battery 120. When the battery 120 is fully charged, the charging control circuit controls the charging control switch 150, to stop charging the battery 120, and the charging control circuit further determines whether the adapter 200 is pulled out of the charging interface 130. If the adapter 200 is pulled out of the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit controls the charging circuit to stop working, and controls, through the charging control switch 150, the battery 120 to power the multiple power-consuming components 110; otherwise, the charging control circuit controls the charging circuit to continue to power the first set of power-consuming components 111 of the multiple power-consuming components 110, whereas the charging control circuit controls the battery 120 to power the second set of power-consuming components 112.

    [0074] If the terminal device 100 is in a power-off state, when the user connects the adapter 200 to the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit starts to detect the voltage of the battery 120, to determine whether the battery 120 needs to be charged. If so, the charging control circuit controls the charging circuit to work and power the first set of power-consuming components 111 of the multiple power-consuming components 110 by controlling the charging control switch 150, and meanwhile the charging control circuit generates a reset signal and a charging interrupt signal to the processor of the terminal device 100. The subsequent charging process is the same as that in the case where the terminal device 100 is in the power-on state, which will not be described in detail herein. In this way, charging of the battery 120 and powering of the multiple power-consuming components 110 can be achieved through the charging module 140.

    [0075] The charging control switch 150 is a switch circuit composed of electronic switch components. For example, the charging control switch 150 may be a MOS transistor. The MOS transistor has a first end coupled with an anode of the charging circuit and an anode of the first set of power-consuming components 111 respectively, a second end coupled with an anode of the battery 120 and an anode of the second set of power-consuming components 112 respectively, and a control end coupled with the charging control circuit. When the charging control circuit detects that the adapter 200 is coupled with the charging interface 130 and the battery 120 needs to be charged, the charging control circuit controls the MOS transistor to be in an ON state. In this case, the charging circuit charges the battery 120 and powers the first set of power-consuming components 111 and the second set of power-consuming components 112. When the charging control circuit detects that the adapter 200 is coupled with the charging interface 130 but the battery 120 does not need to be charged, the charging control circuit controls the MOS transistor to be in an OFF state. In this case, while the first set of power-consuming components 111 is still powered by the charging circuit, the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by the battery 120. When the charging control circuit detects that the adapter 200 is not coupled with the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit controls the MOS transistor to be in an ON state. In this case, the battery 120 powers the first set of power-consuming components 111 and the second set of power-consuming components 112.

    [0076] That is to say, during charging the terminal device 100, the first set of power-consuming components 111 and the second set of power-consuming components 112 are powered by the adapter 200; when the terminal device 100 is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter 200, the first set of power-consuming components 111 is powered by the adapter 200, and at the same time the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by the battery 120; when the terminal device 100 is disconnected from the adapter 200, the first set of power-consuming components 111 and the second set of power-consuming components 112 are powered by the battery 120. When the terminal device 100 is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter 200, the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by the battery 120, whereas the first set of power-consuming components 111 is powered by the adapter 200. In this case, if the second set of power-consuming components 112 is not working, whether there is leakage in the second set of power-consuming components 112 can be determined according to information indicative of power consumption of the battery 120, thereby determining leakage in the terminal device 100 caused by the leakage in the second set of power-consuming components 112. In addition, as the first set of power-consuming components 111 is powered by the adapter 200, power-consuming components for leakage detection for the terminal device 100 can be distributed into the first set of power-consuming components 111, that is, the power-consuming components for leakage detection for the terminal device 100 are powered by the adapter 200. In this case, not only can serious leakage in the terminal device caused by the second set of power-consuming components 112 be detected, but also slight leakage in the terminal device can be detected, thereby ensuring detection reliability.

    [0077] As illustrated in FIG. 6, the apparatus 180 for leakage detection for a terminal device includes an obtaining module 181 and a control module 182. The obtaining module 181 is configured to obtain the information indicative of power consumption of the battery 120. The control module 182 is configured to determine whether the terminal device experiences leakage 100 according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery 120, on condition that the second set of power-consuming components 112 is in a non-working state, when the terminal device 100 is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter 200.

    [0078] In an implementation, the obtaining module 181 is configured to obtain the information indicative of power consumption of the battery 120 by detecting at least one of voltage variation of the battery 120 and current consumption of the battery 120. The current consumption of the battery refers to a current in a loop where the battery is arranged when the battery consumes power.

    [0079] In an implementation, the obtaining module 181 can be configured to detect a voltage of the battery through a voltage detecting circuit, and to obtain the information indicative of power consumption of the battery according to the voltage variation of the battery. For example, within a time period, if the voltage of the battery drops quickly, the battery consumes much power; if the voltage of the battery drops slowly, the battery consumes less power; if the voltage of the battery barely changes, the battery consumes almost no power. Alternatively, the current consumption of the battery can be detected through a current detecting circuit, and then the information indicative of power consumption of the battery can be obtained according to the current consumption of the battery. For example, if the current consumption of the battery is great, power consumption of the battery is serious; if the current consumption of the battery is small, power consumption of the battery is slow; if the current consumption of the battery is tiny or approximately zero, the battery has nearly no power consumption. Alternatively, the voltage of the battery is detected through the voltage detecting circuit and the current consumption of the battery is detected through the current detecting circuit, and then the information indicative of power consumption of the battery can be obtained according to the voltage variation of the battery and the current consumption of the battery, thereby ensuring accuracy of acquiring the information indicative of power consumption of the battery. The voltage detecting circuit and the current detecting circuit can adopt a circuit configuration illustrated in FIG. 3, which will not be repeated herein.

    [0080] When the terminal device 100 is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter 200, if the second set of power-consuming components 112 is in the non-working state, normally, the battery 120 has no power consumption. However, if the battery 120 is detected to have power consumption, the terminal device experiences leakage 100. For example, when the information indicative of power consumption of the battery 120 is obtained according to the voltage variation of the battery 120 and the current consumption of the battery 120, if the voltage of the battery 120 is detected to drop continuously or the current consumption of the battery 120 is continuously greater than zero and remains stable (i.e., the battery 120 has continuous and stable current consumption), determine that there is leakage in components coupled with the battery 120, and further determine that there is leakage in the terminal device 100.

    [0081] With aid of the apparatus for leakage detection for a terminal device provided herein, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, whether the terminal device experiences leakage can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery, thereby effectively solving the problem of the leakage in the terminal device which is unknown to the user.

    [0082] In an implementation, when the terminal device 100 is in a low-power state, the second set of power-consuming components 112 is in the non-working state. In addition, the low-power state includes a screen-off standby state and a power-off state.

    [0083] The "screen-off standby state" means that the display component of the terminal device 100 is in a screen-off state, and the communication network component and the like are in the non-working state with only core components (e.g., the processor and the control IC) of the system of the terminal device in a working state. The "power-off state" means that all components of the terminal device are in the non-working state, that is, the terminal device is in a state with no power consumption ("no-power consumption state" for short). For short, whether the terminal device is in the screen-off standby state or in the power-off state, when the terminal device is fully charged and coupled with the adapter, the battery of the terminal device is in the no-power consumption state. Therefore, inaccurate leakage detection due to the power consumption of battery-powered components, such as the display component, the communication network component, and the like, can be effectively avoided.

    [0084] For example, as illustrated in FIG. 1, in general, when the terminal device 100 has no power or low power, the user will choose to charge the terminal device. When the terminal device 100 is in the power-on state, if the user connects the adapter 200 to the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit will generate a charging interrupt signal to the processor of the terminal device 100. After receiving the charging interrupt signal, the processor of the terminal device 100 executes a charging procedure and outputs a charging control signal to the charging control circuit. The charging control circuit controls the charging circuit and the charging control switch 150 (e.g. the MOS transistor) according to the charging control signal, so as to charge the battery 120 and power the multiple power-consuming components 110, and meanwhile the charging control circuit detects in real time the charging state of the battery 120.

    [0085] When the battery 120 is fully charged and the charging interface 130 is coupled with the adapter 200, the charging control circuit controls the charging circuit and the charging control switch 150, so as to continue to power the first set of power-consuming components 111 through the charging circuit, whereas the second set of power-consuming components 112 is powered by the battery 120. At the same time, the charging control circuit transmits a leakage detection signal to the control module 182, and the control module 182 starts executing a leakage detection procedure.

    [0086] During execution of the leakage detection procedure, the control module 182 first detects whether the terminal device 100 is in the screen-off standby state, that is, whether the second set of power-consuming components 112 is in the non-working state, and if so, the control module 182 starts the leakage detection for the terminal device 100. At this time, the obtaining module 181 obtains the voltage variation of the battery 120 and/or the current consumption of the battery 120, and then the control module 182 determines whether the terminal device experiences leakage 100 according to the voltage variation of the battery 120 and/or the current consumption of the battery 120. For example, within a time period, if the voltage of the battery 120 is detected to decrease continuously, it indicates that the terminal device experiences leakage 100; for another example, if the battery 120 is detected to have a continuous and stable current consumption, it indicates that the terminal device experiences leakage 100; for yet another example, if it is detected that the voltage of the battery 120 continuously decreases or the battery 120 has a continuous and stable current consumption, it indicates that the terminal device experiences leakage 100.

    [0087] When the terminal device 100 is in the power-off state, if the user connects the adapter 200 to the charging interface 130, the charging control circuit starts to detect the voltage of the battery 120, to determine whether the battery 120 needs to be charged. If so, the charging control circuit controls the charging circuit to work and power the first set of power-consuming components 111 of the multiple power-consuming components 110 by controlling the charging control switch 150, and meanwhile the charging control circuit generates a reset signal and a charging interrupt signal to the processor of the terminal device 100. The processor of the terminal device 100 is started after receiving the reset signal, and executes a charging procedure according to the charging interrupt signal. The subsequent charging process and the leakage detection process are the same as those in the case where the terminal device is in the screen-off standby state, which will not be described in detail herein.

    [0088] As a result, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, whether the terminal device experiences leakage can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery.

    [0089] In addition, in an implementation, the control module 182 is further configured to control the terminal device 100 to display the information indicative of power consumption of the battery 120, and to control the terminal device 100 to send out leakage prompt information upon determining that the terminal device experiences leakage 100.

    [0090] For example, after completing the leakage detection of the terminal device 100, the control module 182 can also notify a result regarding leakage detection to the user, so that the user can be informed of a present condition of the terminal device 100 in time. For example, after the leakage detection is completed, if there is no leakage in the terminal device 100, as illustrated in FIG. 4a, the control module 182 can display the information indicative of power consumption of the battery 120 through the display component, and notify the user no leakage is detected in the terminal device 100 and the user can feel free to use the terminal device; if the terminal device 100 experiences leakage, as illustrated in FIG. 4b, the control module 182 can display the information indicative of power consumption of the battery 120 through the display component, inform the user that the terminal device 100 experiences leakage, and remind the user to get the terminal device 100 repaired in time. At the same time, the user can also be reminded by flashing of an indicator lamp on the terminal device 100, for example, control the indicator lamp to flash on red at a high frequency, or the user can be reminded by a speech function in the terminal device 100.

    [0091] In normal circumstances, when the user receives the above alert information, the user will get the terminal device inspected and repaired at a corresponding branch of service in time. However, some users, without awareness of seriousness of the problem when they receive the message, will probably ignore the message and continue to use the terminal device as usual. Therefore, in this case, the user can be reminded multiple times, for example, the user can be reminded at least three times. If the user still does not deal with the problem after being reminded multiple times, some functions of the terminal device 100 can be restricted in this case. For example, when the leakage of the terminal device 100 determined according to the voltage variation of the battery 120 is not serious, some components of risk (such as capacitors) may be restricted; when the leakage of the terminal device 100 is serious, the terminal device 100 is directly controlled to be powered off and unable to be launched.

    [0092] With aid of the apparatus for leakage detection for a terminal device provided herein, when the terminal device is fully charged and remains coupled with the adapter, the first set of power-consuming components of the terminal device is powered by the adapter and the second set of power-consuming components is powered by the battery of the terminal device. In this case, if the second set of power-consuming components is in the non-working state, the control module determines whether the terminal device experiences leakage according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery obtained by the obtaining module. Therefore, whether the terminal device experiences leakage can be determined according to the information indicative of power consumption of the battery. It is also possible to realize timely alert and repair, thus avoiding safety hazard caused by leakage and the problem of short duration of use, which can greatly improve performance of the terminal device in use.
