Electronic Project need power supply and in some cases, you might need to step-up or boost the voltage. Example from 4xAA battery, step up voltage to 12V and power the Arduino via DC jack input.
Well, this XL6009 Adjustable boost convert will helps you. Comes with 3 digits 7-segment display to show the Vin or Vout (configureable via push button), you do not need additional multimeter to measure the input or output voltage :) Very Handy and beginner friendly. With the built-in multiturn (high percision) potentiometer/variable resistor/adjustable resistor, you can easily adjust the output voltage (step up) with a flat screw driver.
This boost converter supports wide range of input voltage from 4.5V to 32VDC, and is able to boost/step up voltage upto 35V.
Note: This is a boost/step up converter, Output Voltage is 1V greater than Input Voltage even it is adjustable.
According to XL6009 datasheet, the maximum ouptut current is 4A, but from our test, it can deliver 3A at peak. But we do recommend maintain it at around maximum 2A output current. It will need additional heatsink if output current is more than 2A continuously.
Since it is switching module (SMPS, Switch Module Power Supply) and switching at 400KHz, it offers high power efficiency, maxixum of 92%.
Note: By default, the 7-segment display will shows voltage of Vin, short press the push button will switch the 7-segment to show Vout. Press and hold for 3 seconds, the display will off to save power.
