Title: Isolation of Battery Chargers Integrated Into Printed Circuit Boards

Present test procedures developed by the Federal Government (10 CFR Part 430 “Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products”) to measure the energy consumption of battery chargers provide no method for the isolation of input power for battery chargers that have been integrated into printed circuit boards internal to electronic equipment. This prevents the measurement of Standby and Off Mode energy consumption. As a result, the energy consumption of battery chargers integrated into the printed circuit board cannot be measured.
