Does anybody out there have a circuit diagram of the Tacklife MDC01 (which is probably sold under other names)?  Or a similar low-end lab power supply (switching)?

This is the one I have: https://tacklifetools.com/products/dc-power-supply-variable-switching-dc-regulated-power-supply-with-4-digital-lcd-display-reverse-polarity-high-temperature-protection-110v-115cm-alligator-leads-included

It works fine -- I'm not needing to repair it -- but I'm always interested in knowing how my equipment works.

Thank you!  I couldn't get a diagram from Tacklife -- they apparently don't build it, just label and sell it -- so I was hoping for diagrams of something similar (need not be identical).  Very much appreciated!

That is not exactly the one, but it's definitely close enough to tell me how the designers think.  The one I actually have has 4-digit displays and has a fan controlled by a thermostat (off or on, almost always off).  So if a closer match turns up, I'll welcome it.  But I'm already off to a good start.  Thanks again.

No schematic diagram, but some additional info.

It's a hybrid design, with a switching pre-regulator followed by an linear final stage, very similar to the Peaktech 6225A, which was reviewed by "Electro Bob" https://www.electrobob.com/peaktech-6225a-review/

One of his users posted a link to a reverse-engineered partial schematic of the control loop https://www.dropbox.com/s/wj405m435snhx5f/Peaktech%206225%20A.pdf?dl=0

And it looks identical to the HyElec model HY3005B, which has some teardown photos on this forum (text in Chinese), https://www.mydigit.cn/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=79335

Sorry it took me so long to get back.  That (the Peaktech) is it, and the information is very helpful.  THANK YOU!
