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.

In today's video I'll be taking a look at yet another fancy new USB Power Meter, this time from an unknown brand :). No really, can't find a brand for this UPM.
It is another useful tool in my growing collection of meters, mainly because it has a Lightning port and very nice MFi-checking function for testing Lightning cables.

In today's video I'll be taking a look at another fancy new USB Power Meter, this time from YZXStudio, the pioneers in the USB Power Monitor niche. It's another useful tool in my testing, because it has a nice autodetect function for output protocol analysis, amongst other nice things.

In today's video I'll be taking a look at a fancy new USB Power Meter from Chargerlab.
It's quite a useful tool in my tests, because it has some special functions none of my other UPM's possessed. It was also one of the last products my contact at Banggood sent me.
Below the main video is a little tribute to Thomas, the legend that was the source of most of the products I got sent to review.
Settle in, relax and start watching a long boring video about a fancy schmancy USB meter :

In deze video pruts ik met een RuiDeng UM24C, 'n (in mijn ogen) betaalbare (sub $20) USB Power Monitor, met of zonder Bluetooth voor datalogging op PC (Windows) en Android device (app komt er aan) die Banggood me opstuurde ter review.
Conclusie voor wie niet de hele video wil doorkijken.

Niet zo uitgebreid als de YZXStudio UPM's die ik gebruik in m'n video's, maar voor 'n home user die wat inzicht in het laden van zijn USB-spul wil krijgen wel een fijne oplossing, denk ik.
