And now for something sourced locally this time : in today's video I'm putting a Niko PM420 0051 Smart USB charger an anonymous viewer dropped off through its' paces on the bench. Our mystery man wanted to know if the specs were true. So I thought I'd oblige him :)
→ Conclusion
This Niko 420-00510 Smart USB Charger performs nicely.
Not too much overhead on the specs, but total output is available on a single port, which I like.
Another nice feature is the power usage in standby, which is none, kind of important with a product connected to mains power 24/7. It does what it promises on the box, so I can't complain.

This Niko PM420 0051 Smart USB charger was dropped off by a local viewer for the making of this video. Thanks mystery man! The support is dearly appreciated!

This charger is available for purchase at your local installation shop.

In today's video I'll be taking a look at another USB Power Monitor from Chargerlab.
I had the same problem with this as with some of the others : there is a manual, but it's translated very poorly so I had to try and figure it out on my own. That took quite a long time :)
But let's see what this thing can do in the video below :
→ Review notes & conclusion
I like this UPM, but the lack of a decent manual really bothers me. Some of the functions aren't very clear to me, and are not as self-explanatory as with other UPM's that I have tested in the past.
The lack of support from the manufacturer is another thing that bothers me.
I am sure I have missed some things in this video.
You can also connect this UPM to a Windows PC, unfortunately, my testing nettop (& only wintel box)
can't run the app. I really need to upgrade to something that can run a recent version of Windows.
It's clearly a nice piece of equipment, but it is let down somewhat by what is stated above.
