After some brain storm and discussion, we came up a new add-on to enforce our QooPow testing tools - the QooPow miniLoad.
This is a response to our KS Angels who have been asking for wider range of charger testing. Due to the infrastructure of qualMeter, it’s not possible to directly add the charger testing load on the mainboard since we also wanted to keep the simplicity of the qualMeter.
QooPow miniLoad is specially designed for extending qualMeter’s charger testing range. When plug miniLoad into qualMeter it provides the ability to allow qualMeter tests 2.1/2.4/3A output of the charger. Simply use the switch to switch among 2.1A, 2.4A and 3A.
Different with qualMeter X, the combination of the “qualMeter + miniLoad” is aiming to simple and rough testing for non-tech people. It only has 4 stops 1A, 2.1A, 2.4A and 3A for most of the common chargers in the market. While qualMeter X can measure more detailed current output from 1A to 3.1A with 100mA each step.
miniLoad can only work with qualMeter. It doesn’t work as an individual load, neither work for qualMeter X.
