For tech enthusiasts as well as developers alike, the ADB commands are among the most powerful tools that they could behold in their gear. From booting the device to Fastboot, Recovery, and FastbootD Modes to opening a shell environment [adb shell], invoking SuperUser request [su], and disabling and uninstalling bloatware, these commands come in handy under numerous different use case scenarios.

However, apart from these ‘serious’ tweaks, these commands could also be used for carrying out some nifty little fun pranks on your device. One such trick is the ability to spoof or fake the actual battery percentage level on your Android device and assign it any random value [150%, 200%, etc]. This change will be reflected across the OS, whether it’s the Quick Settings toggle, the status bar, the notification panel, or even the Settings > Battery menu.

While it goes without saying, still let us reiterate the obvious- it’s just a UI tweak and wouldn’t affect the actual battery percentage in any way whatsoever. Moreover, you could easily remove this tweak and bring back the actual percentage as when required [we have explained this in the guide as well].
