DIY Vehicle Charger Upgrade: IPIP6538 Fast Charging

Transforming your vehicle's charging capabilities can be an empowering endeavor, especially when equipped with the versatile IPIP6538 fast charging boards. If you find yourself in possession of these components and in need of a vehicle charger solution, consider embarking on a DIY journey.

In this particular project, we'll be repurposing a PSP car charger. Despite its initial 5V2A output capacity, it has become outdated with the widespread adoption of fast charging protocols by modern smartphones.

Inspecting the current output indicators, the inscription sticker on the back, and opening it up to examine the internals, you'll find that the design is quite intricate.

While the original fuse is rated at 3A, the IP5358 boasts an impressive 45W output capacity. Despite this, its performance under a 12V supply peaks at 30W, rendering the original fuse adequate for our purposes.

Securing the fast charging board within the housing necessitates drilling holes, revealing an unexpected feature: the original casing comprises dual layers of aluminum sheets for electromagnetic shielding.

Adapting to this revelation, we remove the aluminum layers, drill the necessary holes, and affix the circuit board securely in place.
