12V Portable Auto Car Jump Starter Power Bank Booster Battery Charger 50800mAh (WHL #54)

Some random power bank, we haven’t had those for quite some time now, have we…

This heap of trash actually came from eBay, which nowadays rarely has the best offers for China-shopping. I bought this back in December 2018 for 22.99€ including shipping, and as far as I can recall, I arrived so quickly that it must have been sent from an European warehouse.

The reason for buying a “jump starter” type of power bank was that at the time I had some project running that needed a ~12V supply. In the end, we decided for a different solution, but a 3S lithium cell configuration would have done the job. […]


250W DC-DC Boost Converter Adjustable 10A Step Up Constant Current Power Supply Module Led Driver For Arduino (WHL #21)

What do you do when none of your existing power supplies can provide enough power for some decent LED module? Yeah, right, you buy a bigger one!

So I did. I had some 100W/150W DC-DC converters laying around, but most of them cap at around 36V.

So the new one in my collection is this:

Some more shots:

I bought it on AliExpress back in mid-January for 4.31€ including shipping.

Tech specs are, according to the seller: 250W total output power (boost = step-up only), non-isolated output, input current 8A or 10A with additional heat sinking. […]


Portable Powerbank Power Bank USB 1x 18650 Battery Charger Case Box for Mobile Phone MP3 (WHL #1)

Hey there!
It’s been a while and I was busy buying some gear…and getting some mail ;) Now I have a decent camera ready (for almost 4 hours at the time of writing! :D ) and this is gonna be the first shot on Wan Hung Lo products. My light box is not ready yet, it still lacks light – box is complete ;) , so you’ll notice my lighting and camera setup still needs some improvement. Well, that’ll come with time.

So, I had five single-cell powerbanks ready that I bought from AliExpress. Cost per unit with free shipping was 1,01€ (bulk I guess), current price is 1,05€ single or 0,98€ for bulk orders of 5+ units. […]
