Teardown of an MVMT dual USB port wall outlet adapter

MVMTUSBOutlets-600

Kerry Wong did a teardown of an MVMT dual USB port wall outlet adapter:

Specification wise, the adapter is rated to provide 2.1A for its USB output. I did some load testing with an electronic load I built before and it appeared that the 2.1A is rated for the combined output from both USB ports. You can see my testing in the video linked towards the end of this post. This means that if you are charging two devices using this adapter, charging time will be lengthened as the 2.1A output current has to be shared between the two channels.
The internal build quality of this MVMT USB adapter is actually quite good. Two PCBs are used in this adapter. One is for surge protection and the other one is for the switching power supply that generates the 5V output rails.

See the full post on his blog here.

Check out the video after the break.
