Phihong, a global leader in power solutions, has developed the smallest low-cost USB charger available, at just 42 x 43 x 21mm and weighing 80 grams. Designated the PSM03K, the 2.75W adapter is compliant with the new ENERGY STAR® EPS version 2.0 requirements as well as the European Union’s Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC for Energy-related-Products level 2 Annex 1b and the 5-Star Standby Power standard. The USB charger’s small size makes it ideal for wireless communications, peripherals, networking and portable and mobile equipment.
"Energy efficiency standards are increasingly important for all electronics equipment, including personal and mobile devices, for which USB chargers are standard accessories," said Keith Hopwood, Vice President of Marketing for Phihong USA. "Compliance to standards is a vital consideration in our design of new products, and the PSM03E adapter is a direct response to the mobile phone industry directive in the 5-Star Standby Power standard."
