  • Hello everyone. I have a basic question.

    From wikipedia: UVLO is an electronic circuit used to turn off the power of an electronic device in the event of the voltage dropping below the operational value…..

    Why does the device need to worry if the voltage goes below the operational value? if it does, why does the device need to turn off? I don’t see how a lower than needed voltage could harm the device. It surely does not allow it to work properly but it would not damage it, correct?

No public wish lists :(
