Galaxy Charging Current
With this application you can check the battery charging electrical current of your Samsung Galaxy devices.
The application works correctly on the following devices:
- Samsung Galaxy S III (International and South Korean models).
- Samsung Galaxy Note II (International model).
It may also work on other devices, but such is not guaranteed.
The application displays three values that will tell you if the device's battery is charging correctly:
- current_now: The theoretical charging current, i.e., the rate at wich the battery *should* be charging (usually 999 on AC and 466 on USB).
- current_avg: Usually is the same as current_max (at least after some seconds).
- current_max: The maximum charging current. In other others, the phone will not get more current to charge the battery than the value displayed here. This is the value that matters most.
Most stock chargers should charge your device's battery at about 1000mA. If you think that your device's battery could be charging slowly, check the current_max value. If it displays a value much lower that 1000, the battery is charging at a lower current than desired.
This application also comes with a simple widget that lets you quickly check the charging current.
The application *may* not work on the following devices:
- Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini.
- Sprint devices.
- Any device older than the Samsung Galaxy S3 (Galaxy Note 1, Galaxy S2, ...).
