Regardless of whether or not we have fast charging on the mobile, the truth is that knowing how fast you are charging can be very useful. And not only for the curious, but also for those who are having trouble charging their mobile.
There is an application that allows you know all the information about mobile charging while it is taking place. And this in the end is an interesting utility in order to rule out these mentioned failures, since you could verify or rule out that the charging adapter is the culprit of the problems.
Electron is the free app that tells you everything about your mobile’s battery
Under the name of Electron, this application lives up to its name by providing lots of useful and real-time information about phone charging. It is an application available on Google Play and whose download is completely free.
It should be said that the app contains advertising that can be removed by paying. It costs 2.09 euros as an in-app purchase within the settings, also being a lifetime purchase. And although it is not expensive, we must tell you that in any case the advertising it includes is not too annoying, since it appears very occasionally.

When you open it for the first time, it will ask you to calibrate the battery. But beware, it is something automatic that the app does, it does not require you to carry out the classic battery calibration process. To do this, you just have to click on the calibrate button, making sure that the mobile is not plugged into the current.
The three main tabs of the Electron app
Once this process is done, which you will see is just a few seconds, you will be able to see the general information panel of the app. In the first tab, named precisely Generalyou will find data such as the percentage of battery left, the health status of the battery, the current temperature and more.
We now stop at the second tab, called Chargingin which you will get all app information during reload. Therefore, the interesting thing here is that you put the mobile to charge and observe the values that are displayed. In the case of speed, you must click on the section that precisely bears this name.
in regards to locate the source of a charging failure, that section that can help you find out. If you notice that the upload speed is not matching what it should be, be suspicious of the adapter. Although first it is convenient to try charging it in another socket and also trying different cables to make sure.
Already in the tab functions we found a very interesting utility, which is that of get notifications when battery reaches a certain percentage. Thus, either when it is at a low battery level or when it is fully charged, you will be able to receive a notification that lets you know, very practical if you are not paying attention to your mobile.
