Electronic, Arduino and Raspberry Pi enthusiasts may be interested in a new USB power supply created by Sirutec based in Germany. The aptly named Siru Box as a miniature variable power supply offering a USB 2.0 2.5W with controllable output voltage 0-15V AND controllable current up to 600mA. watch the demonstration video below to learn more about this pocket power supply which is now available to back via Kickstarter from just €29 or roughly £26.
“You ever quickly needed a specific voltage for testing or enabling your piece of hardware? Or you just wanted to have limited current to avoid damage when doing experiments? Setup the output voltage and current limitation using your computer’s web browser! Just plug it in, no driver required for Windows, Linux, Raspberry Pi! In-house developed µC controlled DC/DC converter optimised for small devices with accurate voltage regulation between 0V and 15V and precise current regulation up to 600mA!”
If all goes well worldwide shipping is expected to take place during May 2019.
