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. It is the most basic and compact module that allow you to boost up the Vin to 35V (maximum). The module comes without terminal block or component to display the Vin or Vout, so you do need an additional multimeter to measure the input or output voltage :) before connecting it to the load. Nonetheless, it comes with multiturn potentiometer/variable resistor/adjustable resistor that provides high resolution voltage adjustment with a flat screw driver. Check out video by infinite store:
Note: If you are beginner and needed a more friendly module, the alternative is XL6009 module that comes with display.
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, maximum of 92%.
