Measurements


UGreen%20Dual%20USB%20Power%20Adapter%20top%20230V%20load%20sweep

The top output may only be rated for 1A, but it can deliver a bit above 4.5A, this is a bit high for the usb connector.

UGreen%20Dual%20USB%20Power%20Adapter%20bottom%20230V%20load%20sweep

Same with the bottom output.

UGreen%20Dual%20USB%20Power%20Adapter%20120V%20load%20sweep

And it is no surprise that running them in parallel, the output current is the same, both at 120VAC

UGreen%20Dual%20USB%20Power%20Adapter%20230V%20load%20sweep

And 230VAC

UGreen%20Dual%20USB%20Power%20Adapter%20230V%20load%20test

Rated output is 3.4A and it can deliver that for at least one hour.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.

Temp4092

M1: 61,2C, HS1: 70,6C
HS1 is the transformer.

Temp4093

M1: 44,5C, M2: 52,9C, HS1: 60,2C
HS1 is the rectifier diode, is is also the reason for the warm usb connector.

Temp4094

M1: 57,7C, M2: 54,4C, HS1: 61,8C
HS1 is again the rectifier diode. M1 is the switcher transistor or something close to it.

Temp4095

M1: 47,7C, HS1: 57,3C
HS1 is the switcher transistor or something close to it.

Temp4096

M1: 62,0C, HS1: 77,3C
M1 is the transformer and HS1 is due to the rectifier diode.

10ohm

At 0.5A the noise is 13mV rms and 331mVpp.

5ohm

At 1A the noise is 16mV rms and 305mVpp.

2ohm

At 2.5A the noise is 18mV rms and 273mVpp.



Tear down

DSC_9006

The glue was very strong on this one, I had to cut and break it open.

DSC_9007

On the input side is a fuse (Red block), a common mode coil and an inductor. The switcher transistor can also be seen.
The transfor has flying leads to improve isolation,below the transformer is a safety capacitor.

DSC_9009 DSC_9010

On the first picture the common mode could and the safety capacitor with all its approvals can be seen. The metal is a heatsink for the rectifier diode. On the second picture the fuse with the inductor behind it and the common mode coil can be seen.

DSC_9011 DSC_9012

On the first picture the switcher transistor sits before the transformer. On the second picuture the recifier diode can be seen inside the heatsink. The heatsink also helps move current to the capacitors.

DSC_9008

On this side is the bridge rectifier (BD1), the switcher controller (U1), the opto feedback (U2), the reference (U3:431) and two chips for auto coding (U4, U5).

DSC_9013

DSC_9014

The slot in the circuit board is great for safety, this means very good distance between mains and low volt side.
Testing with 2830 volt and 4242 volt between mains and low volt side, did not show any safety problems.



Conclusion

This power supply can deliver rated current, has auto coding, noise is acceptable, there is overload protection (It is a bit high, but not enough to be a serious problem), the safety looks good.

I will call it a good power supply.
