  • The efficiency of this thing is no where near the datasheet efficiency.

    Running it on 3 AA batteries putting out around 4.5 volts, this thing increased the current used by my teensy from 10ma to 70ma (vs running the teensy directly on the 4.5v).

    I wanted to use this thing in order to get more life out of my batteries, but drawing an extra 60ma completely negates any possible benefit.

No public wish lists :(
