#94 another mini ups review
Looking at other mini ups manufactures I decided to give Jiageng a go. The outer plastic enclosure looks very similar to a lot of other generic mini ups devices. I suspect they all originate from the same factory but have slight improvment’s to the actual PCB inside.
Once opened I was greeted with a beautifully soldered matt black PCB with a higher version number than the previous mini ups from Andowl.
The PCB has quality components and no mystery chips. It also has the iconic Wintonic 18650 cells.
2 differences I noticed are that all the LEDs are a dark green color (the Andowl unit had 2 different greens) and the unit powers off automatically at a low voltage so that it doesn’t require a reboot after it runs “flat”.
The unit also has flashing LEDs as apposed to the Andowl’s fading LEDs
