10:11 FYI – If you have a /tablet that uses fast charge lugged in as the load it will run through the different protocols to confirm what fast charging the hardware is using. Instead of red, it will show green. I also sent you an email, if you have any question just let me know. I have about 6 of the YZX usb meters, 1 load, and a battery I built. Always glad to share some knowledge.

Hi John, another interesting bit of kit for the bench. Have you found a breeder yet? We pick up our new addition to the family in abut 3 weeks. Regards, Dave

Looks like a handy little device. The High Voltage setting is for use with dual / multi voltage USB chargers. I assume it triggers the charger to switch to a higher voltage, as a compatible device would (enabling a faster charging mode). The different options (QC, Samsung, Apple etc.) represent the various fast charging systems in use by manufacturers. Thanks for your review.

That’s a cute little device 😀
It does need to have more firmware updates, i don’t think it’s 100% yet.
I was looking at the display when you connected a load, i didn’t see that 5v at the top left corner drop, i assumed that was the input supply voltage, i must be confuzzled lol.
Sponge bob looks very happy 😀
