Before you buy this, have a read through SparkFun’s FTDI Drivers and Counterfeit Chips blog post, and take comfort in the fact that SparkFun buys their chips from reputable sources.
Great, that’s out of the way.
Very small, reliable and can switch from 3.3 to 5 vdc, powers my devices like a champ, highly recommended
