Using a phone while it charges can throttle charging speed substantially

In this video, we demonstrate that the amount of power your phone draws from your wall charger may drop substantially (by 60% or more!) if you turn on the display or otherwise use the phone while it is charging. It depends on the device, but this effect seems to occur on most modern phones with fast / quick / turbo charging capabilities.

Test equipment:
-Galaxy S6
-Official Samsung Adaptive Fast Charger
-Drok mini OLED USB power monitor

You can buy the Drok USB power monitor featured in this video here: http://www.amazon.com/DROK-Current-Voltage-Detector-Multimeter/dp/B00S2HJAUE?tag=androidpolice-20
