Practical Meter Overview
The Practical Meter looks much like a typical USB flash drive and is about the same size actually. There is a USB plug on the end that will plug into any USB port. I would have liked to have seen a cap or this connector be retractable just for protection.
There are five LED bars that indicate how much power the USB port you plug the Practical Meter into is providing. We will get into what those values are once we get into testing. On the opposite side of the device is a USB port, this is where you will plug in your USB device or charging cable.
The Practical Meter comes with a nifty 3-in-1 fast charging cable. This cable uses a flat cable design and the cables are about 8.5-inches long so it is more or less for mobile use.
The 3-in-1 fast charging cable has a micro USB, mini USB and 30-pin iPhone dock connector attached. This will enable you to charge 3 devices at once. The connectors seem to be pretty heavy duty too and won’t break like many cables that come with our devices.
