Measurements
Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20QC5V

The QC output can deliver 3.5A at 5V, this matches fairly well with the 3A rating.

Load%20sweep%2014.6V%20QC5V

Load%20sweep%2024.0V%20QC5V

Change in input voltage do not affect the current limit or output voltage.

Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20QC9V

At 9V QC output it is the same 3.5A, rating only says 2A.

Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20QC12V

At 12V the current is down to 2.4A and there is a voltage drop through the charger as expected.

Load%20sweep%2024.0V%20QC12V

Higher input voltage means the output voltage will be 12V and do not change the current limit.

Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20PD5V

Load%20sweep%2014.6V%20PD5V

Load%20sweep%2024.0V%20PD5V

Load%20sweep%2011.6V%20PD9V

Load%20sweep%2014.6V%20PD12V

For PD the limits and voltages are the same.

Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC5V%20input%20current

Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC5V

The output works with only 0.5V drop in the charger, that is very good.

Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC12V%20input%20current

Voltage%20sweep%202.0A%20QC12V

At 2A the charger need about 1V extra to maintain 12V output.

Voltage%20sweep%202A%20PD5V%20input%20current

Voltage%20sweep%202A%20PD5V

Voltage%20sweep%202A%20PD12V%20input%20current

Voltage%20sweep%202A%20PD12V

For some reason it dropped out of 12V PD when the voltage was slowly adjusted down.

No%20load%20voltage%20sweep%20QC5V

The unload current consumption is fairly low and do not vary with voltage.

Load%20test%202.4A

I did this test at 2.4A on the QC output.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.

Temp6845

M1: 44.2C, HS1: 50.9C

Temp6846

HS1: 54.9C

Load%20test%204.8A

Using both output on 5V I could also do a 4.8A test.
The temperature photos below are taken between 30 minutes and 60 minutes into the one hour test.

Temp6847

M1: 61.8C, HS1: 67.4C

Temp6848

M1: 61.6C, HS1: 67.1C

Tear down

DSC_7481

I could unscrew the bottom, the top had to be pulled by wiggle it around while applying pull (It was glued on).

DSC_7482

On this side is a single inductor (L1), two current sense resistors (R9 & R14: each 0.005ohm) and a chip.

DSC_7490

A bit more work and I could see it was a dual mosfet (RU30D20H), this is obvious the chip that is used to turn the two USB connectors on and off.

Here is the input fuse (F1), a switcher and dual USB controller (U1: SW3510) with two transistors (Q1 & Q2: RUH4040)

The front has a LED, a few capacitors and a resistor, no active parts.



Conclusion

This charger is mostly for one device at a time, not for two. It only has one converter, this means when using PD or QC it will disable the opposite output. This is not clearly stated in the specifications. The automatic output switch did also turn on/off a couple of extra times.
The PD coding do not match the specifications completely.

The output power is fine for a single device and the charger supports just about everything, it also has low noise and good overload protection.
