I have gone without a variable lab bench power supply for too long now. The power supply that I have been using to power most of my projects has been shorted out too many times. I have actually killed 2 by accident and needed a replacement. I had many 18650 lipo batteries lying around my workshop so I decided to use them to build a portable variable bench power supply that could be easily moved around and used on the go. The power supply consists of DC-DC step up power module, voltage and current display, a switch, standard size 10K trim pots, XT-60 and a balance connector for charging an array of 8x4 18650 batteries.
Build Accurate LC Meter and start making your own coils and inductors. This LC Meter allows to measure incredibly small inductances making it perfect tool for making all types of RF coils. LC Meter can measure inductances starting from 10nH - 1000nH, 1uH - 1000uH, 1mH - 100mH and capacitances from 0.1pF up to 900nF. The circuit includes an auto ranging and reset function to make sure the readings are as accurate as possible ... [more]
