USB digital tester J7-c 2019

DSC_6665

Official specifications: I bought this from Aliexpress dealer SJAMING Store

I got it in a plastic in retail package

DSC_6664

The package included the tester, a Bluetooth interface, a USB to micro USB adapter and a instruction sheet for this meter, but not the Bluetooth interface.

There is 5 USB connectors on this meter, both regular USB, USB-C and a mini USB. The user interface is one button.

The Bluetooth adapter.





Display and functions

The meter has a couple of screens, they are selected with a click on the button.

One screen is Chinese user interface.

Another screen is English user interface.

Then there are two screens with larger digits for, one include a heading the other mAh.

The data line voltage, this makes it possible to guess on fast charge scheme, there is also the resistance of the connected device.

Configuration of alarm values.






Measurements

Measurements are done on USB A ports.

Voltage

The meter do not like low voltage, it will show wrong results.

Current

The current do not work at low value, but the precision is good when the voltage is 5V or higher.

M1: 55.1C, M2: 51.2C, HS1: 63.9C

DSC_8050

It looks like the microprocessor detects higher internal temperature than I can measure external.



Android application

The QR code points to a directory with software and documentation for a couple of devices. As usual the mediafire server opens extra windows with ads when downloading from it. There was no documentation showing how to use Bluetooth with this meter.
I did not have any success with the Bluetooth connection, the module is called "E-test" and I uses a application called "E-test" from the link provided. My phone could connect to the Bluetooth module, but the application would not recognize it.



Tear down

DSC_8067

I could just pull it apart.

DSC_8069

The design is fairly simple with a microprocessor (HT66F0185: 4Kx16 flash, 256*8 RAM, 12 bit ADC , EEPROM), but the internal EEPROM was obvious not enough, there is an external one (ATHYC532/24C32: 4k*8). To handle the power supply is a regulator (6203). The current is measured at the resistor marked 01, the chip next to it (333) is either a OpAmp or a ADC).

On this side is the larger parts, this display most likely has electronic build in.

Conclusion

This meter is a bit low on resolution, but good enough for most purposes. This version of the meter has a color screen, but not any new functionality. I am a bit disappointed with the Android connection or rather lack of connection. Maybe I am doing the something wrong, but there is no documentation.
