How to measure battery drain in realtime, per drainer?


Oct 7, 2016
I would like to know what exactly is causing that battery drain and when it's listed from the past it's complicated. For instance, AccuBattery and Ampere shows the current drain in mAH. Weird thing is, although I'm doing something completely same sometimes it goes up to about 1k, sometimes it's only 300 mAH. And I want to know what is consuming how much, at that moment. Maybe Google services are doing something or an app is checking for notifications. If I see an app doing that all the time I want to disable background data usage.
So if apps can measure the total speed of battery drain then they should be able to show us what is exactly using how much. Do you know an app like this?
