Based on the XLE4005E1 regulator, this handy little circuit will accept an input voltage of 5.0-32 volts DC, and can produce an adjustable output voltage of 0.8-24 volts DC. The output is adjusted via the small brass screw on the blue pot at the top edge of the board. To make it more convenient, we have added the wires on the input side you need to use it, now availible in two versions. Version #1 comes with a male servo-type connector that will accept the connector found on most 4.8-6.0 volt Ni-Cad/Ni-MH battery packs. Version #2 has a pair of 18 gauge wires coming from the input side that are ready to accept the battery connector of your choice. On the output side is a servo cable with a female connector that will plug directly into your receiver. Of course, either of the connectors can be replaced with whatever connector you may need for your application, and we can install them for a very small additional charge.
This gadget is perfect for providing the 12 volts necessary for LED Strip Lights from a 4s or larger Li-Po battery. We also install a small heat sink to the main chip which will increase the output capability from the stated rate to around 7 amps.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The adjustment potentiometer on this device is a "multi-turn" type, which means that it takes more than 25 full turns of the screw to move it from one extreme to the other. This allows for very fine, precise adjustments. As a result, it may be necessary for you to make several revolutions of the screw before you begin to see any change in the output voltage. Turning the screw clockwise, or "in", will increase the voltage output, turning it counter-clockwise will reduce the output voltage.
