Measurements

New%20European%20standard%205V1A%20plug%20230V%20load%20sweep

The 1A rating is rather optimistic, a 0.7A rating looks more realistic.


New%20European%20standard%205V1A%20plug%20120V%20load%20sweep

At 120VAC it can only deliver 0.5A

I did the 1 hour test at 0.7A, the output voltage drops a bit when the charger gets warm.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.

Temp6800

M1: 48.2C, HS1: 78.9C
HS1 is the transformer.

Temp6801

M1: 43.7C, HS1: 54.7C

Temp6802

M1: 75.9C, HS1: 78.5C
Here HS1 is the rectifier diode.

Temp6803

HS1: 78.0C

Temp6804

HS1: 78.9C

noohm

This charger has a lot of spikes on the output when unloaded: 64mV rms and 1063mVpp

10ohm

At 0.5A load the noise increases to 141mV rms and 921mVpp.





Tear down

DSC_7218

It was fairly easy to break the mains pins off and pull it apart (This by itself is bad safety).

DSC_7219

The circuit has a bridge rectifier and uses two transistors instead of a IC, there is a opto coupler from the low volt side. On the low volt site is a small rectifier diode and a zener diode in series with the opto coupler.

There is no safety capacitor, but instead a 1kV ceramic capacitor, this is also a safety risk.

DSC_7220

The safety capacitor is not even soldered (This do not eliminate the safety risk).

DSC_7225

DSC_7226

There is about 1mm between mains and low volt side, there is supposed to be around 6mm!

It failed both the 2830 volt and 4242 volt test, this makes it dangerous to use anywhere in the world.



Conclusion

The power supply has lot of noise, cannot deliver rated current and is dangerous.

Stay away.



Notes

The charger was supplied by a reader for review.
