Test/Review of Simsukian 2A SK22G-0500200Z (Enerpower)

Simsukian 2A SK22G-0500200Z (Enerpower)
DSC_3735
Official specifications:


  • Input: 100-240V,50/60Hz
  • Output: 5V 2A

I got it from Enerpower

Measurements


  • Power consumption when idle is 0.17 watt
  • Usb port coding is Apple 2.1A

Simsukian%202A%20SK22G-0500200Z%20load%20sweep
The overload protection kicks in at about 2.3A.

There is no problem supplying 2A for one hour.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.
Temp2986
M1: 62,5°C, M2: 49,3°C, M3: 38,5°C, HS1: 64,4°C
M1 must be the rectifier diode.
Temp2987
M1: 48,1°C, HS1: 64,4°C
Here HS1 is the rectifier diode.
Temp2988
M1: 56,1°C, M2: 34,3°C, HS1: 57,9°C
Temp2989
M1: 55,6°C, M2: 36,6°C, HS1: 67,8°C
HS1 must be the transformer.
Temp2990
M1: 63,0°C, HS1: 66,1°C
Both M1 and HS1 must be the transformer.
10ohm
Noise at 0.5A load is 16mV rms and 420mVpp
5ohm
Noise at 1A load is 21mV rms and 400mVpp
2.5ohm
Noise at 2A load is 25mV rms and 460mVpp

I could not pop it open in my vice, but had to cut it open.
DSC_4074
Input has a resistor as fuse and their is a inductor between the two mains capacitors.
This design has a safety capacitor, but no opto feedback.
DSC_4077 DSC_4078
On the first picture the mains switcher transistor can be seen between the mains capacitors and the transformer.
On the second picture the input resistor is in the green tube and the part with the colored bands is the inductor.
DSC_4079 DSC_4080
The blue part is the safety capacitor.
DSC_4075 DSC_4076
The black paper is an important part of the safety in this compact charger.
BD1 is the input bridge rectifier, IC1 is the mains switcher controller.
D3 is the rectifier diode.
The coding resistors are placed around the usb connector.
DSC_4081
DSC_4082
The isolation distance good, but the black paper is needed.
Testing with 2500 volt and 5000 volt between mains and low volt side, did not show any safety problems.
Conclusion
A good standard charger, there no problems and no smart functions in it.
Notes
The charger was supplied by Enerpower for review.

Thanks HKJ. This would be ideal if it had an Australian adapter.
