    So does this just display the power usage or does it actually regulate it too so that these cheap cables don’t cause issue? If it’s just a display, it’s not really of that much value if you ask me.

      They are of value. I use one now to check voltage and amperage on my various chargers including the wireless charger for both regular and fast charge. If numbers change drastically, I’ve got a potential problem with the charger or the phone.

      Got mine free when I bought a battery pack and I wouldn’t be without one now.

      I already get this via ampere, sure it won’t be as precise, but it’ll give you the same information for far lower cost.

      Not the same. I also get battery data from AccuBattery, but this is what the app developer has decided to present from limited phone info. An external device gives you hard data including charger and cable.

      It doesn’t regulate.
