Your Smartphone Will Charge Faster with the Practical Meter

Do you ever wonder how you can get your phone to charge faster? The Practical Meter is a device that diagnoses and speeds up charging rates. This Kickstarter project, by David Toledo, comes with a small USB cable with a wattage-strength indicator. You are able to tell how fast or slow your phone will charge on a specific device according to the LED light signals on the Practical Meter. In order to quicken the process, Practical Meter provides a 3-in-1 charging cable for different power sources. All you have to do is read the signals and plug in accordingly.

This innovative product examines and tackles the problem of inconsistent phone charging rates. The factory cable only permits 2.5 watts when plugged into a PC, but the Practical Meter will optimize charging potential to 5 watts.
