I suspect my fake lightening cable charge my iPhone 5 much slower than my original lightening cable on the same charger. Is there an app that will display the current battery draw/charging current and also plot it over time?


The battery doctor HD app by KS moblie tells me the charging current for my iPad 2. However the battery doctor app for iPhone 4s does not appear to give this information.


As I know, I don't think there is an app that can show the charger current. But there is a few app that can record your charging time and charging statistics. Try to search something like "battery doctor" or "battery" in AppStore. You can then compare the fake and the real one's charging time.


Battery box or battery health. You could also contact Apple for a diagnostics test (they will text or email it to your iDevice)


there is a new app on the Apple store - Amperes. It shows the charging rate of your iPad/ iPhone.

    It's helpful if you provide a link to the referenced App so readers don't have to go searching for it. – Allan Jul 7 '17 at 13:29
