This module features the MT3608 2 Amp step up (boost) converter, which can take input voltages as low as 2V and step up the output to as high as 28V. The MT3608 features automatic shifting to pulse frequency modulation mode at light loads. It includes under-voltage lockout, current limiting, and thermal overload protection.

This module has a multi-turn trimpot (potentiometer) that you can use to adjust the output voltage. Since the trimpot has 25 turns of adjustment you can easily adjust the output of the module to exactly the voltage you need.

Boost converters are a great way to easily increase a given voltage, but that boost comes at the cost of less output current compared to input current.

Since this is a boost converter the output voltage has to be higher than the supplied input voltage.

If you need to decrease (step-down) a voltage consider using a buck converter such as our LM2596 buck converter module.

We also offer a 4A boost converter if you need more than the 2A of this module - XL6009E1 Boost Converter Module.

great custom adjustable power supply December 10, 2016
By: DAVID ARDUINI from Erie, PA United States  
these are great... not previously possible to have a reliable solution without a custom PCB.  Great product!

Great for Batteries November 28, 2016
By: Dan White from Utah  
Works very well to convert the changing voltage of a discharging battery up to a nice, consistent 5V for my projects.  Great price for what it does!  

One thing to note: the trim pot on this module may need several turns of adjustment before you start to see any change in the output voltage.  I thought mine was broken at first as turning the pot a full revolution in either direction didn't produce any change initially.  After a few revolutions in one direction, I eventually stumbled upon the range where the output voltage started responding.  After that, it worked great.
