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

    Pros:
    Normally in these small pocket multimeters you saccrifice features for portability, not in this case. This thing has all the normal features you could need to measure your way out of an emergency. It's very small, It's perfect to toss in a backpack when you...

    Exceeded expectations, great for battery powered projects

    posted by chipset31 on 09/18/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    + Very small, only about 3x5cm + Proper mounting holes + Excellent regulation, managed 38 volts output at 3 volts input, 100mA load + Low ripple, only 10mA peak to peak in my testing + High quality PCB and construction, all solder joints look good and t...
    Cons:
    - Low current capability, the LM2577 CAN handle up to 2 amps but this module certainly cannot, for that you'd need to heatsink ...

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

    Pros:
    +All I've tested so far have been within tolerance +Fairly thick leads compared to some other 1/4 watt resistors I have +Delivered in strips marked with the values, makes my life easy when I sort it into parts cabinets
    Cons:
    -Some common values missing from the pack, no 1.5, 3.3, 5.6 or 8.2 decades. This isn't a huge problem, mostly you can bodge som...

    Great value for money, very useful for battery powered devices

    posted by chipset31 on 08/05/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap as chips Very small Good soldering quality Meets the stated specifications with ease with the exception of current Very low noise, measured 20mV at 5V 200mA load Complete and working module, no additional work required.
    Cons:
    The stated max output current of 3A is theoretical, the LM2596 CAN output 3 amps but at that point you would fry the module bec...
