Official specifications:

I got it in a cardboard box, it is supposed to contain an instruction sheet, the charger and one usb cable.

Measurements


Energizer%202%20usb%20Wall%20Charger%20AC2UEU%20%231%20230V%20load%20sweep

It can deliver 1.2A, this is a fine value for a 1A charger.

Energizer%202%20usb%20Wall%20Charger%20AC2UEU%20%232%20230V%20load%20sweep

The other output delivers the same.

Energizer%202%20usb%20Wall%20Charger%20AC2UEU%20230V%20load%20sweep

With both used together the output is still the same, they are in parallel and the charger can only deliver 1.2A total.

Energizer%202%20usb%20Wall%20Charger%20AC2UEU%20120V%20load%20sweep

At 120VAC it can deliver slightly more.

Energizer%202%20usb%20Wall%20Charger%20AC2UEU%20230V%20load%20test

No problems running one hour at 1A.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.

Temp3413

M1: 41,3C, M2: 44,5C, HS1: 59,9C
HS1 looks to be the transformer. It do not look like the rectifier diode is visible.

Temp3414

M1: 40,0C, HS1: 45,0C

Temp3415

HS1: 57,6C

Temp3416

HS1: 55,0C

Temp3417

M1: 56,7C, HS1: 59,2C
The reason for the warm usb connector may be the rectifier diode.

10ohm

At 0.5A the noise is 46mV rms and 353mVpp.

5ohm

At 1A the noise is 55mV rms and 344mVpp.




Tear down

DSC_7203

It looked like it just needed a squeze and maybe a whack with my mallet, after a couple of squezes and whacks I decided to cut it open.

DSC_7204

On this side there is a fusible resistor (F1) at the mains input, a inductor (L1) between the two capacitors. There is the usual blue safety capacitor. The rectifier diode is rather large for a 1A supply (good). The mains switcher transistor (Q1) is placed against the transformer.

DSC_7206

The small diode and capacitor is internal power for the switcher (See linked article at the bottom).

DSC_7212

There is two output capacitors between the usb connectors.

DSC_7208

From this side the safety capacitor, the inductor and the fusible resistor can be seen in front of the transformer.

DSC_7209

The mains switcher transistor is placed against the transformer.

DSC_7205

On this side is the mains switcher controller (U1) and a bridge rectifier (BD1).
On the low volt side is coding resistors for the usb connectors and a 0 ohm resistor used as a bridge accross the track on the circuit board.

DSC_7211

Safety looks good with cut-out in the circuit board and good distance.

Testing with 2830 volt and 4242 volt between mains and low volt side, did not show any safety problems.



Conclusion

Everything looks fine on this charger or would have done a few years ago. Today a DCP coding would be more useful and some more current would also be useful (Especially to justify two usb ports).
