    Same as other models but smaller.

    posted by JoaoRibas on 02/23/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    I have another similar converter with the same chipset but this one is a lot smaller, good to attach directly to a cable. I use it to program the LPC ARM family from NXP. The transparent shrink cover is very nice, avoid fingers touching the component termin...
    Cons:
    I bought only one piece and it came with some rust in the USB conector frame, not sure if it was bad luck or if it is a regular...

    Perfect to replace bulbs!

    posted by JoaoRibas on 02/22/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very good light, something between 60W and 100W bulb. Bought two of them and both worked perfectly. Good fit on the socket, no flickering, instant power up on switch, very good light spread, no dark spots on the room.
    Cons:
    The only Con I can think of at the moment is the exposed electrical parts, never touch the lamp while powered. The led terminal...

    Excellent for VCOM ports

    posted by JoaoRibas on 09/21/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Pretty good distance, I placed mine inside a metal box and it still reached 4 meters. In open space I got at least 10 meters with good signal quality. The pinout is described in the bottom layer, so no problems connecting it to the proc. The transparent shr...
    Cons:
    Total and complete mixed up documentation. I have found at least a dozen different datasheets and user guides for this module. ...

    Good to charge gadgets.

    posted by JoaoRibas on 03/06/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Very small, nice fit to the car cigarrette socket. The overall build quality is excellent. Already charged my nokia cellphone and my galaxy tab with no problems. The stand-by current is only 4mA, so I believe you could leave it plugged to the car all the ti...
    Cons:
    The output voltage in mine is 5.25V, I was expecting less than 5% error, even for this price 2% would be enough. It heats up co...

    Used to power a RGB led strip.

    posted by JoaoRibas on 03/01/2013

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Very small alluminum case. Mine came regulated to 11.99V, for me thats pretty good. I tested it with a 700mA led load, powered from 127V and from 220V, no drop at the output voltage. The heating was moderate at 700mA, after 30min you could still hold it in ...
    Cons:
    The board is fixed with only one screw to the case, so you the region of the terminals is floating inside the case, therefore y...

    Excellent

    posted by JoaoRibas on 01/10/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Very good fit for my Smasung P3110, all the buttons, camera, connector and speakers are available. The materials and the finishing of the case are excellent. The back of the case is some sort of rubber, it helps a lot to avoid slipping.
    Cons:
    None so far...

    Good for heat shrink tubes.

    posted by JoaoRibas on 01/10/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Small and cheap! It works, no doubt about this. I use it to work with heat shrink tubes, the small flame is ideal for it. It is very easy to refill.
    Cons:
    The flame lock on my unit does not work, there is no difference no matter the position of the switch. Its a little tricky to st...

    Fishing gear

    posted by JoaoRibas on 12/15/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Good fit on the head, the strips are easy to adjust. It has three light modes (high, low, blink), in my opinion they are unnecessary, I only use it in high bright. The battery compartment is nice, it closes well. Cannot comment yet on the battery life. The ...
    Cons:
    I got a better light after removing the reflector inside the lamp. I believe the reflector is poorly manufactured, so it distor...

    Kids room lighting

    posted by JoaoRibas on 12/15/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    The colors are vivid and mix very well since all three colors are in the same chip (different from other strips that have one led for each color). It is very simple to use, if you don't know how to build your own controller, buy one from DX. I made my own c...
    Cons:
    First of all it does not come in that fancy black plastic roll showed in the picture, mine came all wrinkled inside a plastic b...
