Relativistic quantum effects on physical observables of scalar charged particles are studied. Possible peculiarities of their behavior that can be verified in an experiment can confirm several fundamental conceptions of quantum mechanics. For observables independent of charge variable, we propose the relativistic Wigner function formalism that contains explicitly the measurement device frame. This approach can provide the description of charged particles gas (plasma). It differs from the traditional one but is consistent with the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. The effects that are connected with this approach can be observed in astrophysical objects, i.e., neutron stars.
