Test/review of 4 port QC3 USB charger SLS-B07

4 port QC3 USB charger SLS-B07
DSC_2037
Official specifications:


  • Input: 100-240V 50/60Hz
  • Output: 5V 3.1A
  • Output QC: 5V 3A, 9V 2A, 12V 1.5A

I got it from a reader, I do not know where it was bought.

It arrived in a envelope.

A single port can deliver about 2.8A
4%20port%20QC3%20USB%20charger%20%233%20230V%20load%20sweep
The same on another port.
4%20port%20QC3%20USB%20charger%20%23123%20230V%20load%20sweep
And not very surprisingly the same when all ports are used together.
4%20port%20QC3%20USB%20charger%20%23123%20120V%20load%20sweep
Using 120VAC do not change anything.
4%20port%20QC3%20USB%20charger%20%234%20QC5V%20230V%20load%20sweep
The QC output can deliver about 3.75A before output really start dropping, but it is on the low side at around 2.2A.
4%20port%20QC3%20USB%20charger%20%234%20QC9V%20230V%20load%20sweep
The 9V looks better, here it can deliver about 2.75A
4%20port%20QC3%20USB%20charger%20%234%20QC12V%20230V%20load%20sweep
And the 12V QC output can deliver about 2.1A
4%20port%20QC3%20USB%20charger%20%234%20QC12V%20120V%20load%20sweep
But only 1.5A with 120VAC supply.
4%20port%20QC3%20USB%20charger%202.5A%2B1.5A%20load%20test
Loading it with rated current, or a bit less on 5V it could only maintain output for 9 minutes.
4%20port%20QC3%20USB%20charger%202.2A%2B1.2A%20load%20test
Reducing both a bit did help, here I could run for about 23minutes.
4%20port%20QC3%20USB%20charger%202.2A%2B1A%20load%20test
With 2.2A on 5V and 1A on QC 12V I succeeded in running the one hour test.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.

At 0.5A the noise is 105mV rms and 836mVpp.
5ohm
At 1A the noise is 253mV rms and 1541mVpp.
2ohm
At 2.5A the noise is 159mV rms and 761mVpp.

At 0.5A the noise is 58mV rms and 635mVpp.
2ohmQC5V
At 2.5A the noise is 125mV rms and 1103mVpp.
10ohmQC9V
At 9V 0.9A the noise is 104mV rms and 944mVpp.
10ohmQC12V
At 12V 1.2A the noise is 137mV rms and 1165mVpp. There is a lot of noise on the outputs.
Tear down

Some pressure with my vice and a knock with my mallet and it was open.

On this side is one switcher chip (U1), one opto feedback, two transformers and two fake safety capacitor (? & CY2: 1nF 1kV).
There is two leds between the USB connectors.

On this side is the bridge rectifier (BD1) and the other switcher (U5: TD217), on the low volt side is a synchronous rectifier for 5V (U6: DP4110) and a dual charge optimiser (U7: HC2802). For QC there is also a synchronous rectifier (U8) and a QC controller (U4: HC6602) and a reference (U3: 431).

The connection for the fake safety capacitor runs along the edge of the circuit board up into the mains area, this means the creepage distance is less than a mm.
Testing with 2830 volt and 4242 volt between mains and low volt side failed for both. This makes the charger unsafe anywhere in the world.
Conclusion
With fake safety capacitor and very low distance between mains and low volt side there is only one thing to say:
STAY AWAY
