SparkFun engineer Alex Wende reviews the DIY Supercharger Kit - from opening the kit, to building, testing and using it.
Last Friday, we released the Elektor DIY Supercharger Kit (by Great Scott!). This kit provides all the materials needed to build a DIY supercharger/booster. Once assembled, it can charge a single-cell LiPo battery; protect it against the effects of overvoltage, overload, and short-circuits; and and can boost battery voltage to 5 V or 12 V. SparkFun engineer Alex Wende spent some time with the kit before we released it and wrote a comprehensive review (as published in ElektorMag - please take a moment to download it and read it.
Great Scott! also put together a very helpful overview and build video.
Alex's review of the DIY LiPo SuperCharger Kit first appeared in the March/April edition of Elektor, which was guest edited by SparkFun. Please check it out: we’re giving away free copies of the English language edition with orders using promo code: MAGAZINE21 (rules and info).
