Legion Meter Claims to Charge Your Smartphone Up to 92% Faster [Video]

Legion Meter is a device that claims to safely accelerate your smartphone/tablet's charging speed by up to 92%. It also features a built-in multimeter for displaying voltage, current, power, and milliwatt hours on an integrated OLED display.

How It Works:
USB ports have 4 lines. Ground, 5V, D+, D-. The D+, D- or data lines are used in most mobile devices to determine what charge profile that it should use to charge itself. Legion Meter modifies the D+ and D- to signal your mobile device to charge at the fastest possible setting no matter what USB port you're connected to. Charge acceleration is made possible by the patent pending, dynamically switchable architecture.

The device also features a resettable milliwatt-hours counter that can be used to determine the remaining capacity of your battery.

Legion Meter has far surpassed its goal of $10,000 with over $230,000 in pledges on Kickstarter. There's only a few left at the $49 pledge level and then the price jumps to $69.

Check out the video below for more details on how the device works...

I own both ipad and the charger and haven't forgotten since I bought the meter.

I found a way to charge my phone much quicker than this. 1. Plug phone into a small form factor laptop (netbook will do) 2. Place phone and laptop into a sufficiently large microwave 3. Activate microwave for a period of 5 minutes 4. The phone will inform you when it is charged by releasing (violently) the excess energy. 5. You're good to go.

If microwaves can destroy earbuds then how is this supposed to work? Is there a video to prove us about this?

Did you know that "naïvety" is not in the dictionary?
