Now we will discuss the voltage and current rating of the charger.

### The input Voltage rating of the Mobile charger:

In the above picture, the input voltage rating is 100-240V AC, which means the charger will work when it is supplied with an AC voltage between 100 Volt to 240 Volt.

### Input Current rating of Mobile Charger:

In the above picture, the input current rating is 0.15A, which means the charger will draw a maximum current of 0.15 Ampere.

### Input Power of Mobile Charger:

So the maximum input power at 100V of the charger is 100*0.15= 15 VA(volt-ampere)
and the maximum input power at 240V of the charger is 240*0.15= 36 VA

Input Frequency of Mobile Charger:

In the above picture, the input frequency rating is 50-60Hz, which means the charger can be operated at a frequency between 50 Hertz to 60 Hertz.

### The output Voltage rating of the Mobile Charger:

In the above picture, the output voltage rating is 5.0V DC. The symbol indicates DC. So the output voltage of the charger is 5V DC.

### Output current rating of Mobile Charger:

In the above picture, the output current rating is 1.0A, which means the charger can deliver a maximum current of 1 Ampere.

### Output Power of Mobile Charger:

So the maximum output power at 5V of the charger is 5*1=5 Watt
