Super Capacitor Charge Controller Kit plus wire cutters
Super Capacitor Charge Controller Kit plus wire cutters and soldering starter kit
This board provides a rechargeable power source that can be used to power a project. It works by charging up a 1F super capacitor when it is connected to a USB port. Two LEDs are used to show when the capacitor is charged (this takes about 1 minute).
Once charged the USB lead can be removed and the board used as a power source. The power connection is by two solder connections. When switched on the board provides power until the capacitor is empty. The length of time this takes will depend upon your application circuit (from a few seconds to ten minutes or more).
