Measurements

Huawei%20USB%205V%201A%20HW-050100E1W%20230V%20load%20sweep

The charger is rated for 1A and can deliver slightly above 1A, this is fine.

Huawei%20USB%205V%201A%20HW-050100E1W%20120V%20load%20sweep

It works the same way at 120VAC.

And the charger has no problem delivering rated current for one hour.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.

Temp6688

M1: 43.5C, HS1: 51.3C
HS1 near the USB connector is the rectifier diode.

Temp6690

HS1: 35.9C

Temp6691

M1: 40.9C, M2: 39.2C, HS1: 41.7C
Here HS1 is the transformer.

Temp6692

HS1: 57.6C

Temp6693

M1: 36.9C, HS1: 57.1C

10ohm

At 0.5A the noise is 15mV rms and 481mVpp.

5ohm

At 1A the noise is 17mV rms and 529mVpp, the rms noise is very low.



Tear down

Clamping the bottom of the charger in my vice and whacking the top with a mallet was enough to open it.

DSC_6245

At the input is a fuse packed into some heatshrink, the yellow part is a MOV for transient protection. There is four diodes for a bridge rectifier. Between the two mains smoothing capacitors (C1 & C2) is a inductor.
After the rectifier diode (D7) the output also has two smoothing capacitors (C7 & C8) with a inductor between (L3: A ferrite bead around a wire)

The isolation distance is very good.

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



Conclusion

This charger looks like a lot of cheap models, but it is fairly good quality with good safety.
