Know what? That charger you use to charge your device might be killing its battery slowly and steadily. Overcharging side-effects are often hidden and are occasionally seen in the form of devices getting unreasonably hot while charging.
While humungous power consumption from a battery does little to affect its life, the rate at which it is being charged can leave a considerable impact. A powerful charger can charge your device fast, but it might reduce your device's battery-life. CHARGING CURRENT IS AN IMPORTANT METRIC HERE.
MOST BATTERY UPDATES ARE IN THE FORM OF A PERCENTAGE OR VOLTAGE THAT DO NOT REFLECT THE CHARGING CURRENT OR EFFECTIVE CHARGING CURRENT.
Enter Battery Meter...
Battery Meter provides you three important results:
1. The EFFECTIVE CURRENT which is being supplied to the device when it is charging.
2. The TIME it will take to charge the device given usage doesn't change.
3. A HEALTH INDEX telling you how healthy this charging current is for your device's battery.
Using battery meter is very easy:
1. Launch the app and select your device.
2. Once your device is selected you will be redirected to the results screen. Plug in your charger, tap to begin measurements and let battery meter do its job. DO NOT LOCK THE SCREEN.
3. BATTERYMETER WILL TAKE SOME TIME TO COMPLETE ITS ANALYSIS. After its analysis is complete, you will be presented with the results.
4. Tap on the results to know more about what they mean.

**BATTERYMETER WILL TAKE A WHILE TO FIND OUT THE CHARGING CURRENT ACCURATELY. DEPENDING ON THE CHARGING CURRENT VALUE, IT MIGHT TAKE MANY MINUTES. PLEASE LEAVE THE APP RUNNING.
** MAKE SURE YOUR DEVICE IS PLUGGED IN BEFORE YOU BEGIN MEASUREMENT.
Whats new in version 1.4
** Galaxy S4 is now supported
Whats new in version 1.3
****** Added a refresh button that allows the user to refresh measurement.
****** Improved current estimation algorithm.
