    fonctionne très bien, installer sur une alimentation 12volt, abaisser a 3v pour des led qui consomme 0.8amp.

    Impression:Good price;

    Cheap, and its working. But it is not an LM2596. The switching frequency is about 50 kHz if you can see that with a scope. LM2596 should have 150kHz switching freq. Maybe it is a LM2576. Even so it is useable.

    This part works great, and it doesn't run hot like the linear converters as it uses an LM2596 step-down converter. I bought a few of these to try and get a bit more efficiency out of my battery packs rather than using an LM317 or any other linear converter. Will definitely get more of these to I... Read more

    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. None, really. A few holes in the PCB for mounting would have been nice, but double You... Read more

    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. The voltage ajustment screw is not tight enough for shocky environments. I use it in a offroad car and sometimes its a bumpy ride. I use 2... Read more

    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 common electronics. My unit came with... Read more

    Efficient device with small form factor, looks like having good components 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. Get a bit hot but depends upon a... Read more

    I used this in my Arduino project to reduce a 12 volt power circuit down to 10V. Worked perfectly and doesn't get very hot. Components are simple and well made. No manufacturing flaws None to report. Worked well in my circuit. Some pins were bent when I received it but not an issue. Could have so... Read more

    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. Adjusting the potentiometer takes a few tries (pretty sensitive, use small movements) for me it does anyways. Go for the bulkrate and stock up, once a... Read more

    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 battery to power Raspberry Pi, a USB... Read more
