In July 2018, Apple set up a new laptop on the official website – the MacBook Pro 13-inch 2018. After a year of upgrades, compared to the old MacBook Pro 13-inch 2017 model, in addition to the computer’s own hardware configuration brought a new upgrade, the original Apple charger for distribution has also been upgraded. Upgraded from the original old charger A1718 to the new A1947. The biggest change is that the new charger has increased the output position of 15V, the compatibility of the charger has become better, but the maximum power has not changed, it is still 61W.
1, Apple 61W charger appearance
In terms of appearance, it is still Apple style as always. Sleek white polycarbonate case with apple logo on both sides.
With folding pins and detachable pin design, it is very convenient to change the pins of different specifications, such as US regulations, European regulations, British regulations, etc. It is very convenient to travel abroad and travel.
The pin has a serial number here, which can be compared with the internal firmware number to distinguish whether the charger is genuine.
Pins are not magnetically absorbing
There are product models on the side of the pin: A1947 and maximum output power: 61W.
On the other side is a USB Type-C output interface.
The USB-Type-C output port is 24 pins.
The bottom of the charger is marked with detailed parameter information: support 100-240V voltage input, basically can be used in any country in the world, only need to change the plug of a local national standard; USB PD output gear has 4 gears: 20.3 V/3A, 15V/3A, 9V/3A, 5.2V/3A, covering most of the USB PD protocol, mobile phones, laptops can be charged.
The surface size is about one-half the size of the iPhone X.
The actual length, width and height are 74mm x 29mm x 74mm. The weight is 208.7g.
Compared with the old Apple 61W charger (the above is new, the following is the old model), the model changed from the original A1718 to A1947. The output gear position has also changed from 5.2V, 9V, 20.3V to 5.2V, 9V, 15V, 20.3V, and the 15V gear has been added.
2, Apple 61W charger test
First, compatibility testing
Using ChargerLAB POWER-Z KT001 for protocol testing, the Apple 61W charger supports the USB DC protocol. In addition, Apple 61W charger supports USB PD2.0, supports the output of 4 gears, covers 5V, 9V “low pressure gear”, 15V, 20V “high pressure gear”.
When charging the iPhone7 (46% power), the voltage is 5.12V, the current is 1.71A, and the Apple 2.4A protocol is supported. Apple devices such as the iPhone 7/7Plus can achieve a good charging speed.
In actual tests, the iPhone X has a power of 27% and a charging power of 14.77W.
Charge iPad Pro10.5 inch (23% power), power is 30.14W.
Charged MacBook Pro 2018 (65% power) power reached 46.37W
Not only can you charge your mobile phone, but you can also charge your tablet, notebook, and game console. iPad Air, iPad Air2 support Apple 2.4A protocol; notebook, three notebooks have entered the USB PD fast charge of 20V gear; and the recent relatively hot Switch game console also entered the 15V file USB PD fast charge.
For mobile power, charge Zikko PB10000 mobile power, power up to 24.4W, Purple rice QB820 mobile power, power up to 34.34W, Xiaomi PLM03ZM mobile power, power up to 9.33W.
Second, the load test
Maximum output power, temperature control, and efficiency conversion are some important indicators to measure the quality of the charger. Next, we test these three aspects.
The first is the maximum output test. The four voltage levels of the charger are set in sequence. The current increases from 0A, incrementing by 0.1A each time, and the test results are similar. The maximum output current of the four output gears is 3.3A. As the current increases, the voltage gradually decreases. The maximum output of the Apple 61W charger is up to 65.1W (19.73V/3.3A), which is 4.1W larger than the nominal power.
In terms of fever, the indoor temperature is about 30 ° C and the load is kept for 10 minutes. For each output gear heating condition, the temperature is measured by the FLIR temperature tester: the maximum temperature reaches 39.4°C in the 5V gear position, the highest temperature 42.4°C in the 9V gear position, and the highest temperature in the 15V gear position. 43 ° C; 20V gear position, the highest 46.7 ° C.
Since it is the original charger for the MacBook Pro 13-inch (2018 models), then let’s test to see how the charging effect is?
MacBook Pro 13″
Apple’s new 61W (A1947) USB PD charger detailed evaluation
The first is the charging speed. It can charge 34% of electricity in half an hour, 67% in one hour, and it takes 2 hours and 9 minutes to fully charge.
First of all, it is also the charging speed. It can charge 50% of electricity in half an hour, and about 75% in 1 hour. It is almost full in two and a half hours. It is worth mentioning that in the first 40 minutes, there is about 70% of the electricity.
From the test point of view, the advantages and disadvantages of Apple’s 61W USB PD charger are as follows:
1. Support USB PD and Apple2.4A charging protocol;
2. Compared with the old model, the 15V voltage position is added, and most of the equipments are compatible.
3. The actual maximum output power far exceeds the nominal value;
4. The conversion efficiency is high, reaching 92.2%;
4, the charger has a low fever, the highest is only 46.7 ° C;
5, can quickly charge Macbook, iPhone, iPad Pro10.5 inch.
1. The USB PD voltage position is missing 12V;
2, slightly larger
