    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Good and compact little module. Stable voltage even at currents above 2,8A. Easy to adjust voltage quite precisely using the multi turn trim pot. 0,02V seems not to be a problem. It doesn't get excessively hot. Cons:None, really. A few holes in the PCB for mou... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Quality components and does not run too hot. Output is very stable. Its a small form factor module and for the price you pay you cannot really do it yourself. Cons:The voltage ajustment screw is not tight enough for shocky environments. I use it in a offroad c...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:The LM2596 is an excellent IC. The output is quite steady and clean. I'm using it with a pack of batteries to feed servos (5V) and the output remains around the same voltage throughout the life of the batteries. It may have a slight variation, but it's ok for...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Efficient device with small form factor, looks like having good components Cons:It is a bit heavy (used on a RC model, so this is relative) and maybe a static voltage selector or a "lock" on the tuning bolt could help to avoid changing settings after tuning. G... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:Easy to use, extremely handy to have around. You never know when your going to need to adjust a voltage! Great build quality. Simple to work with. Cons:Adjusting the potentiometer takes a few tries (pretty sensitive, use small movements) for me it does anyways. OtherTho... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:The module is inexpensive, but is very well built. It is super useful. I used it to build an iDevice charger by using a Nikon EN-EL3e 7.4V battery, and by adding 2 voltage dividers for the data lines. I was also able to use it to step down the voltage from car...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:the price is very cheap, and great quality, didn't have any serious cons, increases and lowers voltage very steadily, used it to control the voltage coming from a 24v power supply to a wiper motor, worked great. Cons:there is one small con, is that you need to turn the... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:It is very efficient, small, simple to operate, and cheap. Seems to be made of quality components. I have used it on many occasions, and the current draw is excellent. Almost no voltage drop. Cons:It might get considerably hot, to the point it's hard to touch,... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:It works. My car cigarette socket reach 14 v, for some reason it would not charge well per se link directly from the socket to my PC, especially when USB devices are connected, although the The laptop is clearly marked "12 V DC input".
