well if you get a better one i'd be happy to buy the old used one. PM me let me know.
I am not interested on selling mine, sorry.
can I run the booster on 6.5v? I have been thinking of using 4 alkaline batteries in series to power the booster. Can it run on 5v? The AC adapter says it puts out 6v so I assume 6.5v is ok.
People are reporting this boosters failing. By using more voltage you are actually stressing it more. I think the best is to go the other way. Use 5-5.5V to power it.
Oops, actually work on 9-12V, straight from 3S Lipo. I will check latter if I am wrong.
Good news is it never gets hot, so no worry
Thats very good news, maybe this is the answer to get a more reliable unit. I am very happy with my 1W unit though.
