Measurements


  • PD codes: 5V 3A, 9V 3A, 12V 2.5A
  • PD outputs starts disabled.
  • PD output is coded as Apple 2.4A, DCP, QC2
  • QC support DCP, Apple 2.4A, QC3, Huwai-FCP, Samsung-AFC
  • Minimum QC3 voltage is 3.56V
  • Power consumption when idle is 12mA from 12V and 17mA from 24V
  • Both switchers works at around 150kHz
  • It is slightly too short for my test car outlet.

No%20load%20voltage%20sweep%20QC
Power consumption when noting is connected to output depends on input voltage.
QC output
Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20QC5V
5V output with low input voltage, this looks good up to about 3.5A, this is fine for a 3A rated output.
Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20QC9V
9V output, the same 3.5A
Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20QC12V
12V output, again the same 3.5A, output is only rated for 1.5A. Output voltage is a bit low, because the input voltage is low and this charger do not have a boost converter.
Load%20sweep%2014.6V%20QC12V
12V output with high input voltage the output is maintained at 12V.
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC5V%20input%20current
In these curves I sweep voltage from 24V and down with a output load of 2A, this one shows the input current with 5V output.
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC5V
The 5V output is stable down to about 5.5V input.
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC9V
9V output works below 10V input, the pulses around 6V is attempts to retrigger QC
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC12V
12V output works down to about 12.5V input, the pulses around 10V is attempts to retrigger QC
10ohmQC5V
At 5V 0.5A the noise is 3mV rms and 142mVpp
5ohmQC5V
At 5V 1A the noise is 4mV rms and 152mVpp
2ohmQC5V
At 5V 2.5A the noise is 134mV rms and 4mVpp
10ohmQC9V
At 9V 0.9A the noise is 3mV rms and 156mVpp
10ohmQC12V
At 12V 1.2A the noise is 6mV rms and 136mVpp.
PD output
Load%20sweep%2014.6V%20PD5V
USB-C PD with 5V output and high input voltage can deliver a little bit above 3A.
Load%20sweep%2014.6V%20PD9V
9V is also a bit above 3A.
Load%20sweep%2014.6V%20PD12V
Even 12V looks to be very close to 3A
Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20PD12V
12V output with low input voltage, as expected the output voltage is a bit low.
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20PD5V%20input%20current
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20PD5V
It can maintain 5V output down below 6V input.
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20PD9V
For 9V output it need 10V input.
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20PD12V
For 12V it need 13V input.
10ohmPD5V
At 5V 0.5A the noise is 6mV rms and 124mVpp
5ohmPD5V
At 5V 1A the noise is 3mV rms and 76mVpp
2ohmPD5V
At 5V 2.5A the noise is 5mV rms and 106mVpp
10ohmPD9V
At 9V 0.9A the noise is 3mV rms and 156mVpp
10ohmPD12V
At 12V 1.2A the noise is 6mV rms and 136mVpp
QC and PD full load test
Load%20test%206A
First test is at 5V 6A, i.e. rated load on both output, that was too much for the charger.
Load%20test%205.6A
Reducing the current to 2.8A on both output fixed it and it could run a hour.
The temperature photo below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.
Temp5626
M1: 64.9°C, HS1: 75.9°C
Temp5627
M1: 60.8°C, HS1: 64.0°C
Tear down

I mounted it my vice and gave it a whack of my mallet and it was open.

On this side is one of the inductors.
DSC_0050
Where the spring is connected is a fuse. Both switcher chips are below this inductor, there is a total of 3 chips. Probably 2xswitcher and one PD controller. Beside the usb-c connector is a transistor (Q3), it is probably used to turn off the usb-c voltage, until the chip sees a usb-c device that wants power.

Behind the usb-a connector is the QC and more chip.

Being a 12V device there is no need to test with high voltages.
Conclusion
The USB-A output supports all the common fast charge schemes, including Quick Charge.
The PD output support a few fast charge schemes in addition to PD.
The over current protection on PD is a bit to close to the 3A specification and prevented using it at full power.
It can deliver up to 12V on both ports with a fairly low voltage drop.
