Test/review of Cabletime Dual QC car charger QK505

Cabletime Dual QC car charger QK505
DSC_0466
Official specifications:


  • Input: 12-24V/3.5A MAX
  • Output QK2: 5V/2.4A
  • Output Smart7: 4-12V/3.6A MAX;
  • Protocols: Huwwei FCP/SCP, QC2.0/QC3.0, AFC/SFCP

I got it from Aliexpress dealer: Lancom cable Store

I got it in a small cardboard box inside a plastic bag.

The box contained the charger and a note.

Measurements

  • QK2 usb output support Apple 1A, Samsung, DCP
  • Smart7 output support Apple 2.4A, Samsung, DCP, QC3, Samsung-AFC, Huawei-FCP, Huawei-SCP
  • Current consumption when idle is 14mA
  • There is led behind the usb connectors and a translucent ring on the charger.
  • Weight: 34.1g
  • Length: 64mm
  • Diameter: 32mm

Load%20sweep%2011.6V%202.4A
This output is rated for 2.4A output current, but delivers significantly more at 3.4A.
Load%20sweep%2024.0V%202.4A
With 24V input the output current is slightly smaller.
Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20QC5V
The QC output can deliver 3.8A, this matches the 3.6A rating.
Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20QC9V
At 9V it can “only” deliver about 3A, before output voltage drops.
Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20QC12V
And at 12V it is limited to 2.2A, this is more than enough for a QC output.
Load%20sweep%2024.0V%20QC12V
Using 24V input reduced the maximum output current to 1.8A for 12V.
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC12V%20input%20current
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC12V
With 2A load current it can maintain 12V output down to about 13V and will drop out of QC mode at 11V.
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC5V%20input%20current
Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC5V
With 2A load current it can maintain 5V down to 5V.
No%20load%20voltage%20sweep
Idle current consumption varies a bit with voltage, but not much.
Load%20test%203.8A
For load test I uses 12V 1.4A and 5V 2.4A, the charger had no problem running one hour with that.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.
Temp5685
M1: 54.4°C, HS1: 55.4°C
Being a all metal body (except front) the temperature is nearly the same all over the charger, it gives a nice cooling for it.
Temp5686
M1: 51.2°C, HS1: 55.5°C
10ohm
Noise at 0.5A output is 15mV rms and 104mVpp
5ohm
Noise at 1A output is 17mV rms and 110mVpp
2ohm
Noise at 2.5A output is 20mV rms and 116mVpp
10ohmQC5V
Noise at 0.5A on the QC output is 24mV rms and 157mVpp
2ohmQC5V
Noise at 2.5A on the QC output is 31mV rms and 161mVpp
10ohmQC12V
Noise at 1.2A on the QC output is 23mV rms and 142mVpp, all low noise values.
Tear down

No cutting or breaking this time, I could screw the tail off and the push the circuit board out the front.
DSC_3063
There is a white heat transfer piece on top of one of the IC’s.
DSC_3065
At the input is a green fuse (F1). Next is the 5V switcher (LINTOP LT6005C), followed by the QC switcher and controller (Injoinic IP6505).

On the other side of the circuit board are inductors for the two switchers and some capacitors.

The last picture shows that both power and data connections from the QC usb is connected to the switcher circuit board.
DSC_3071
The four leds for the white light are here, the auto coding chip for the normal usb bort is also here (U3: Marked 2515)
Being a 12V device there is no need to test with high voltages.
Conclusion
The charger has one connector with support for many protocols including QC and one more simple connector, it has power enough to run both at full current, they are overload protection and with low noise. The metal body construction improves cooling.
I will call it a good charger.
