Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) for Energy Conservation Standards for Battery Chargers and External Power Supplies
CX(s) Applied: B5.1
Offices(s): Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
DOE proposes amended energy conservation standards for Class A external power supplies (EPS) and to develop new energy conservation standards for non-Class A EPSs and battery chargers. The proposed standards for EPS are the minimum average efficiency in active mode and the maximum power consumption in no-load mode expressed as a function of the nameplate output power. The proposed standards for battery chargers consist of a set of maximum annual energy consumption levels expressed as a function of battery energy. These proposed standards, if adopted, would apply to all products listed in Table 1. 1 and Table I 2 of the NOPR and manufactured in, or imported into, the United States on or after July 1, 2013.
