| 2. MEES A5 earphones charging case teardown
After unpacking the box, we have a comprehensive understanding of the appearance of the MEES A5 true wireless bluetooth earphones. The earphones and charging case are small in size and light in weight. Next, we will enter the disassembly process to see its internal structure and chip information.
Pry open the charging cockpit to see the internal structure, and there is a physical buckle connection on the side.
Inside the charging cockpit, there is a magnet on each of the left and right earphone sound chambers to magnetically fix the earphones, and a longer bar magnet is used to attract the box cover at the opening of the box cover.
The internal structure of the charging case, the battery is at the bottom.
There is a highly integrated power management chip on the circuit on the motherboard side.
Remove the battery, there are no components on the back of the motherboard.
LPS LP7802A is a six-in-one single-chip solution that supports 1A linear charging, synchronous rectification boost discharge, load identification, control, status indication, and dual-channel independent discharge functions.
LPS LP7802A supports dual-channel independent output of charging status. It is a six-in-one charging bin dedicated chip. The input terminal has a built-in 30V over-voltage protection that meets vehicle-level standards. The standby power consumption is as low as 23uA. It supports Hall switches and can be full of cut-off current. Adjusted to 1mA, the left and right ears can be independently identified and charged independently. The whole warehouse does not require MCU minimalist design. The SSOP16 package saves area, making the design of the TWS charging case time-saving and worry-free.
According to 52audio, audio products from brands such as Xiaomi, OPPO, Huawei, Lenovo, Motorola, Realme, Edifier, QCY, JLab, Skullcandy, Boltune and other brands have adopted a large number of LPS power management chips.
The soft pack battery used in the charging case comes from ST (Shenzhen Shentong Tianxia Technology Co., Ltd.), model ST602030, with a rated voltage of 3.7V, a rated capacity of 300mAh, and an energy of 1.11Wh.
The battery protection board is responsible for the overcharge, overdischarge and overcurrent protection of the battery.

Let’s continue to disassemble the earphone part. The MEES A5 true wireless bluetooth earphone adopts a bean-type in-ear design, which is small in size and light in weight.
The touch area has a brushed texture, and the earphones supports single, double, and three-touch, and long-press control modes. The long-press control also sets an audio reminder.
The microphone pickup hole is also an indicator light hole, which is designed to be more concealed.
There are two charging contacts on the inside of the earphones, as well as the L/R logo.
The fine dust-proof net of the sound mouth and the metal net cover on the outside provide double protection to prevent foreign matter from entering.
Disassemble the earphone along the parting line, you can see the internal structure.
Inside the earphone shell, the outer ring is a bluetooth antenna, the middle is a touch-sensitive foil, the microphone protective cover and the light guide of the indicator light are combined into one.
The internal structure of the left and right earphones is basically similar, and the product name “A5” is affixed to the main control chip.
The internal structure of the earphone is designed to be stacked layer by layer.
