Hi,

When I was using Galaxy S3, before I got the OPO, there was an app called Galaxy Charging Current that would, of course, show the current at which the battery was charging. Helped me a lot in identifying charging problems with that phone. I don't have any problems with charging, but do we have a similar app for OPO?

I've checked the GSam Battery app but it doesn't show charging current. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Mods: If this thread belongs to the Themes and Apps forum, please move. I posted here because this is a question.

Quick System Info Pro. Gives you charging, discharging and a lot more info in the notification drawer.

Thanks all for your suggestions.

I'm trying out the battery monitor widget right now but it doesn't seem to show the correct current numbers. I mean, I am using the wall charger and the current jumps around between 800mA and 1050mA. The wall charger is charging fine and fast, so, it should be around the 1800 - 2000 mA mark, right?

Will try the Quick System Info Pro in couple of days and get back.

Thanks!

It's jumping because the charging current is not a constant value. It's regulated according to the current temperature and number of % of juice your battery currently has... maybe a few other things, but mainly this. The max current OPPO will take is 1,9A (1900mA)... you may see that result when your battery is really low and it's temperature not high, on the other hand when your battery is almost charged you will see low current draw, just enough to power your device and not be discharging the battery.
You should find an app that will tell you the max. current draw that it can take from a specific charger, and stay away from fake samsung chargers.. they are junk.

My OPO is only charging @0.8A (according to a volt/amp meter).
Although after flashing Boeffla (or AK) kernel, you'll be able to change the charging current. I changed mine to 1500mA.
