The Xiaomi USB Type-C 65W power adapter looks basically the same with the 45W power adapter except for its slightly larger volume.

root of the power output cable
The root of the power output cable has been strengthened, which aims to ensure durability. Besides, we can see Xiaomi’s logo.

remove the cover
The cover of the electric supply plug uses ultrasonic welding. After removing the cover with a crowbar, we can see the glue between the power circuit and the shell. The power circuit still can’t be taken out after we remove the glue. Therefore, we need to open the tail cap on the output side.

tail cap
The tail cap adapts dual-layer design. The top layer is weld with the bottom layer through the ultrasonic process.

circle hole
There is a circular hole near the output cable. Use a proper screwdriver to push it slightly.

main capacitor
The main capacitor is covered by an independent metal shield cover.

main capacitor
From the slot, we can see the main capacitor’s brand and specification. Taiwan Chinsan ELITE 420V 120μF.

main switching regulator
The rectifier bridge shares a heat dissipation chip with the main switching regulator.

electrolytic capacitors
Two electrolytic capacitors on the output side are in parallel. SAMXON 25V 470μF. Taiwan Chinsan ELITE 25V 680μF.

Type-C output cable
The Type-C output cable has three cables.

Use POWER-Z to trigger the fast charging mode, and the result suggests that the adapter fails to support any popular fast charging mode.

Use POWER-Z to trigger PD mode, and the result suggests that all the max currents that the adapter support in different voltage under PD mode is completely consistent with the data on the product package.

  1. Would be great to see a teardown and comparison with another MI 65W model CDQ07ZM with detachable cable and QC support.

  2. Black – GND (A1 – A12 – B1 – B12)
    White – VBUS (A4 – A9 – B4 – B9)
    Blue – CC1/CC2 (A5 – A8 – B5 – B8)

    GND is easy to find in any cable, it is always black. VBUS tends to be red (thickest cable). CC1/CC2 can be guessed … after connecting the other two, keep connecting the other cables until the charger works.
