I want to be able to leave a device with charger plugged in the socket, and have it email me (or call/text me on my another device) as soon as it gets power (ie when the charger is technically or officially plugged in)

Scenario: I plug the device and leave it. There's no power. Power comes, the device emails/calls me.

    You can try apps like tasker.

With Tasker, you could try this:

  • Condition: State → Power
  • Task: Send SMS

(Note that Compose Email / Compose MMS / Compose SMS only open the dialog and let you edit, so you would need to use the Send SMS option to have it automatically sent).
