Mini power supply – Upgraded !
The original USB powered mini power supply idea seems to have been quite popular, so i’ve upgraded it.
It’s simply a Voltage and Amperage display with a boost circuit.
Both items are very inexpensive and create a good reliable 4-30V adjustable power supply.
I don’t know what the current limits are in practice, but would expect that regular hobbyist loads up to 1A to be fine with voltages from 4 to 30V. The USB power input (or batteries etc) will dictate the available power throughput.
The boost modules state a max load current of between 2A and 3A.
