Keystone USB 3.0 A Female To Female Jack Module Adapter Converter Power Socket (WHL #13)

My new desk has some extension cables running underneath to provide data and also power conveniently on one end. I decided to use a 19″ 1U “KeyStone” patch panel because I like the variety and modular nature of these adapters. Well, things like HDMI (or even this DisplayPort voodoo!) are hard to find in China, and 4mm banana plug keystones and audio jacks are basically the same price over here. But USB seems very common – so why not buy an USB 3.0 keystone from the Wan Hung Lo factory?

So I did. This arrived not too long ago:


The front dimensions are standardized to 15x17mm. […]


Müller Licht 5.5W/220-240V/50Hz/38mA/470lm/2700K/dimmable/E14 EB1500665 40036 (WHL #12)

Bit unusual item today – a plain E14 LED bulb that is sold in Germany, made by a German company, but I suspect it is made in China. Müller Licht has some stuff actually manufactured in Germany as well, but I don’t think this one was. But as it is not clearly indicated on the bulb and/or on the retail package (as far as I can see from product photos), I cannot say for sure.

Well, this was one of four identical bulbs that I bought for replacing halogen bulbs in my new home. I cost me 6.39€ a piece back then, shipping was free due to buying loads of other stuff and easily surpassing the free shipping limit at one of my favourite shops, voelkner.de. […]


Black 0-9 Digits Single Unit Pushwheel Thumbwheel Switch (WHL #11)

Folks, this is a big one. I will split into two articles to make the item review available now and show the finished project later (once I got a box around it). Maybe even three articles to post DMM comparison data. Today, I will show the unit and the first measuring results.

Back in January ( :neutral: ) I bought a 10-pack of these dials for 5.33€ including shipping at AliExpress. I saw these in the EEVblog forums and decided to have a go. And now you know the purpose of the assorted SMD resistors in WHL #10 ;)

First things first: Shipping took ages, and quality is very Wan Hung Lo’ish. […]
