Makers and developers that use breadboards to create their electronic circuitry prototypes and layouts may be interested in a new breadboard power supply which has been created by Jin Lee.
The Power Box as he has called it will provide both 5v and 3.3v via an easy to use switch that allows you to change the current as you need. Watch the video below to see it in action.
Various different power supplies from a DC9 to 24V Adapter or even a USB cable can be used to power the Power Box, and there is a toggle switch for on/off together with a Power LED to check to indicate whether it is DC 5V or DC 3.3V being supplied.
The Power Box project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creator explains :
“Caution: When using it on breadboard check VCC/GND In Prochip’s POWER BOX, we have come up with features to enhance convenience and compatibility. The smaller version of POWER BOX MINI is made to be more compatible. There is a switch on POWER BOX MINI to switch between 3.3V and 5V without the hassle of changing the whole breadboard power supply.”
