Hi,

 

I have this power bank which doesn't have any battery level indicator. Are there any apps which can show how much charge it has remaining?

 

Thanks

Probably not, but I don't actually know. My reasoning is that I don't see how could an app could find out how much is remaining – but it is possible I'm missing something.

I'm pretty sure iPhones can see the battery level of portable chargers, but that might only work with Apple's own battery case.

It'd basically have to be communicating with the battery over USB to find that out though. That is highly likely with Apple's own stuff, but not likely to be in anything much else – price first and foremost, and then it'd have to use the right protocol to communicate too.
