There is a led behind the front of the charger.

Measurements


  • Power consumption when idle is 0.12 watt
  • Both USB output is as usb charger (DCP)
  • The two outputs are in parallel.
  • Weight: 37g
  • Size: 86 × 36.5 × 36.5mm

Output can deliver about 2.3A before it drops.

It is the same for the other output.

And also when using both outputs.

But not at 120VAC, there it can only deliver 1.7A

Running 1 hour at 1.7A worked fine.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.

Temp5891

M1: 59.9°C, M2: 52.9°C, HS1: 60.3°C
HS1 is the transformer.

Temp5892

M1: 63.3°C, HS1: 65.7°C

Temp5893

HS1: 51.1°C

Temp5894

HS1: 97.9°C
HS1 is the transformer.

Temp5895

HS1: 75.3°C
HS1 is the rectifier diode.

10ohm

At 0.5A the noise is 146mV rms and 1094mVpp.

5ohm

At 1A the noise is 252mV rms and 1297mVpp.



Tear down

Placing the charger in my vice and whacking one with my mallet did open it.

At the mains input is a glass fuse and a brudge rectifier, the switcher (RM6204) is on this side, together with the opto-coupler. There is a large rectifier diode near the usb connector. The “blue safety capacitor” is not a safety capacitor, but just a 1000V capacitor

On this side is the usual reference (Q1: 431).

The creepage distance is about 1.5mm, this is way to short.

Testing with 2830 volt and 4242 volt between mains and low volt side, did not show any safety problems.



Conclusion

The high voltage test did not show safety problems, but there are due to too short distance and a unsafe capacitor. Performance varies with voltage and there is a lot of noise in the output.

Stay away from this charger.
