Workmate is correct: all USB chargers supply 5 V with current limited by the design of the charger. However, the device won't draw more current than it needs -- connect a 2 A capable device to a 500 mA charger, and it'll charge at 500 mA, but connect a 500 mA device to a 2 A charger, and it'll still only draw 500 mA. Battery fires and explosions are caused ...

I would recommend DashClock widget with the BatteryDash extension. BatteryDash is a reasonably simple battery info app with currently drawn amperes, delivery voltage and temperature data. DashClock provides that info through a Home Screen widget and a custom daydream. Links: DashClock : ...

You can try Ampere (I didn't test it), which should show you the current (dis)charge rate: Quoted from a rating: I appreciate that this app displays which of my available charging devices delivers the most milliamps. It's useful because I know which charger to swap out for maximum power. Also, it may indicate if a known charger may be under ...

Qualcomm marketing manager PJ Jacobowitz writes: Quick Charge 1.0 makes all this is available to the user with existing USB charging accessories — no new cables and wall chargers to buy. OK, so I don't need a charger with a special Quick Charge logo or anything. Good. Still, surely an underpowered charger won't allow the phone to charge as quickly as ...

Your phone isn't capable of charging any faster than it's built to charge. The Nexus 5 had very limited support for Quick Charge 1.0 due to its processor, although my understanding is that this functionality wasn't enabled for the 5. But the phones are designed to pull only as much power as they can safely pull. If it can't take it, it'll negotiate a lower ...

I can't speak to your specific device, particularly as you haven't named it, but assuming it supports the functionality, you would use an adapter such as this one which provides both a micro-USB input to continue charging the phone/tablet, and a USB-A port for the OTG functions. You'll find a variety of alternatives linked to via Amazon as well, with ...

It is depending on your device. Some Samsung Tablets can be charged while using OTG with special adapters. The cable you post in your question don't work. Some devices have a special mode for USB Host and changing at the same time. Most devices can only charge OR host.

That is most definitely an INTERNAL batery, and I am also curious as to what you mean by "doesn't seem to recognize it". I'm not sure how you could install that externally as you imply. Did you follow the manufacturer directions EXACTLY? Did you charge it completely before powering yor device on? I am most curious becouse I plan to purchase the s5 version of ...

It wasn't really a new question. It's the same as this one but with all the mentioned precautions already in place. Plus a full power off would preclude apps from preventing a battery charge since it's not idle but off. So my contention is that these temp fixes seem t circumvent a major flaw in the system but nothing actually seems to permanently fix it. The ...

Actually Nexus 7 battery is easy to change. The back is easily carefully pried off, the connector inside comes undone without much effort. I replaced my battery with a new one still it only recharges to about 50% then begins to discharge. I'm going to try a slightly stronger charger. Though even fully powered off and charging over night did not increase ...
