    Easy to use, hi power relay module

    posted by bigjack65 on 01/27/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Really high quality product. Board is made of good material, relay tracks are large to manage hi power, there is a milling in the PCB to ensure insulation between power and control tracks. Every channel have it's own led as monitor. Driver and relay are dec...
    Cons:
    Not really cons. You can find similar products at less price. Using photocoupler, should be possible to galvanically insulate d...

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

    Pros:
    Almost the same as original, same dimensions, trasponder and radio pcb fits perfectly, buttons works flawlessy. Also the key bar seems of the same metal and ready to mill the path. Shell is made of strong charged epoxy and close very well. If you use the ca...
    Cons:
    None. The material seems different than the original, not so "smooth", specially the button side seems of more hard p...

    posted by bigjack65 on 01/26/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Very well made, have a standard mini-USB connector so it' easy to embed in your projects. Have almost standard FTDI interface plus a standard 6 pin ISP connector. Plus have an useful switch for 3,3 or 5 Volt signals. There are leds for Power, TX and RX for ...
    Cons:
    Not so cheap for a standard USB to TTL. Actual supply standard is micro-USB and not mini-USB. IMPORTANT: the switch select the ...

    A small Arduino board at a small price

    posted by bigjack65 on 01/26/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap, small, perfect for every standalone project or for testing on protoboard. Almost the same footprint of original Pro Mini plus extra analog pins and the ability to work with 3,3V and 5V @16Mhz! Component are all on one side. Very affordable product.
    Cons:
    Not really have cons. Product arrived with pins already soldered, useful for breadboards or for rapid replacement, but not so v...

    Very useful in every project

    posted by bigjack65 on 01/26/2014 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    A lot of gears of various type. Is impossible to know what type of gear you'll nedd in a project, so this is a good item to create your own gear stock. There are also some worm gears, but I've ordered also SKU217971 (that have the same pitch) to complete as...
    Cons:
    Not real cons. Perhaps should be bigger wheels also and a little more cheaper. Plastic seems not so strong and gears are thin s...

    Very useful and cheap

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

    Pros:
    It's very cheap and small. Use a standard micro usb connector. Led for charging and charge completed. Over-discharge protection. A lot of values for a very cheap and small caharger. I'm using this to charge my 18650 elements - ex laptop battery - for my 3,3...
    Cons:
    Really none. Perhaps may be possible to adjust final charge voltage and cutoff voltage, to better suite battery and/or project,...

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

    Pros:
    For my protoboards I have always used the usual thin copper wires. Time ago, I've ordere the female to female jumpers for y Arduino experiments and decided to give a try to these jumpers too. Seems to be well done and I think to use it not only for prototyp...
    Cons:
    Not really cons, but terminal are too big to be used in a high density breadboard and terminals would be better gold plated ins...

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

    Pros:
    Very useful for testing, prototyping and for final project. Contact seems of good quality and cable too. Lenght and number of wires are adeguate for every use. Consider that this type of connectors are commonly used in commercial devices.
    Cons:
    No cons for this product. Perhaps it may be a little cheaper. Colors are not equally distributed: red and black wires may be th...
