Introduction: What's Inside? #1: USB Phone Charger (Salvaging Electronic Components)!
This Is a 5.0 Volt 0.7 AMP Samsung phone charger
Step 1: Tools
These are the tools I used If you take one apart you may need to use different tools:
Step 2: The Parts
2 400V 4.7 Micro-Farads Electrolytic Capacitor
50V 470Micro-Farads Electrolytic Capacitor
Useless connector (for me)
And a useless transformer because I couldn't find the datasheet so I don't know what it does.
I had a couple a problems with the capacitors so I'm not really happy of this overall, but, hopefully I'll do more of these "Whats Inside" Instructables which will be better.
Does anyone know if the is voltage converted from AC to DC with the capacitors? I am asking this because there is no bridge rectifier (diode bridge).
Do you like taking apart electronic devices? I've made a collection of a couple"What's Insides" If you're interested:
