Measurements


Anker%2040W%205-port%2071AN7105%20%231%20load%20sweep

Anker%2040W%205-port%2071AN7105%20%235%20load%20sweep

It looks like each port has individual overload protection (Very good), but it is a bit high at 3.2A.

Anker%2040W%205-port%2071AN7105%20load%20sweep

Running all ports in parallel it turned the output off at 9A

Anker%2040W%205-port%2071AN7105%20load%20test

The charger has no problem with a total load of 8A for one hour.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.

Temp2091

M1: 60,7C, M2: 69,7C, M3: 63,3C, M4: 40,6C, HS1: 74,9C
HS1 is the D12 diode.

Temp2092

M1: 61,3C, M2: 58,9C, M3: 46,4C, HS1: 65,0C
HS1 is the heatsink for the mains switcher, M1 is one of the rectifier diodes.
Try comparing this photo to the top photo of the circuit board, it is very easy to see the parts.

Temp2093

M1: 55,7C, M2: 62,8C, M3: 47,9C, HS1: 72,3C
HS1 must be the heatsink for the rectifier diodes

Temp2094

M1: 58,8C, M2: 60,4C, M3: 51,7C, M4: 39,7C, HS1: 67,8C
And here HS1 must be the D12 diode.

10ohm

There is not much noise at 0,5A with 20mV rms and 220mVpp.

2ohm

And even less when loaded with 2.5A with 15mV rms and 200mVpp.

0.6ohm

The peak noise decreases with full load: 17mV rms and 120mVpp.



Tear down

DSC_0377

I could break it open when holding it in a vice and using a hammer. As can be seen there is very little damage to it and it could be glued together again.

DSC_0379

Some parts are hidden below the heatsink, but the main switcher transistor can be seen on the heatsink and on the other heatsink there is two rectifier diodes. There is also a safety capacitor and opto feedback.

DSC_0382 DSC_0384


DSC_0383

What is very difficult to see is that there are two common mode coils in this power supply, both placed before the bridge rectifier. There is also a 3A fuse on the mains input.

DSC_0380

U1 is the switcher controller. U2 is controlling the voltage feedback. U5-U9 is the auto usb coding chip.

DSC_0385


DSC_0390

The distance between low volt side and mains is enough.



Another version

This charger exist in multiple version with the same type number. A reader had one with two dead output that he gave me.
The left side is his and the right side the one I have tested.

DSC_0386 DSC_0389

Look for the F6 part, it is a fuse and it do not reset again when blown. As can be seen on the left version there is no fuse, but my test did show a protection?

DSC_0387 DSC_0388

Behind the usb connectors are some chips (U12, U13), they are some sort of over current protection IC.

DSC_0391

They have the same type number, but the marking is different.


Testing with 2500 volt and 5000 volt between mains and low volt side, did not show any safety problems.



Conclusion

This charger looks very good with low noise, overload protection on each output and able to run at full current.
