It needs a little update. One of the screens says "max. USB current: 1500mAh" while I'm drawing 3 amps over a five volt source. But besides minor issues, this app does measure how much current is going into your phone. It is also very easy to use and I like the layout.
Very useful and easy to use. Already saved me $30. I thought my battery was bad. App showed the battery charges ok & is good. I verified it's the phone that crapped out, but at least didn't buy a new battery that would have been useless to me.
Helped me figure out which cords were bad, and even seemed to "fix" those bad cords... I'm putting that in quotes because I'm not sure what happened, but I had two cords that were drawing power and killing the battery and after measuring them with this app, they seemed to start charging again after being unplugged and then plugged back in.
This app is really good, but can anyone pls tell me what's wrong with my phone? It stops getting charged past 75-80%. It takes merely 300mA current and then suddenly starts getting 0mA current. What to do pls help.
It seems to work great. Of course it can only tell you what the cord and adapter provide together, not individually. I found that when switching cords or adapters I get different amounts of power flowing to my phone. Obviously this is very useful information, as it can tell you which cords are better than others and also which adapters are better than others.
The app is really okay. But, it doesn't really work on my Galaxy S5 G900T. I get, without any change related to my use, a discharge current of -450mah, and while charging +1200mah. This doesn't change if I have the screen set to full brightness or entirely dim, or if I have the phone on airplane mode or if I'm running TuneIn radio through bluetooth. Ultimately it's disappointing, but the app isn't terrible.
