Mini PSU from DEEK-ROBOT

Found in an obscure listing

Mini PSU from DEEK-ROBOT

Whilst looking for some breadboard on eBay I stumbled across a listing which had this MiNi power supply in it. As it looked interesting I paid the £7.13 and here it is. The device is more of a power converter, with two output channels one which gives USB 5v and the other is a variable 1-20V supply. There are also several different output ports and options.

Another LCD Panel Driver Option - this time as a kit

Another find from my hobby of typing 'v56' or 'LCD panel' into Banggood was this kit of the products you need to re-purpose a laptop LCD panel.

It's all about me...

I'm a 49 year old married father who works with websites for a living. Doing that for work means I dont often update this site, unless I can think of something useful to say. I mostly like taking photos - and most of my internet presence now will be related to that.
