This DC-DC Boost Converter is well into the heavy duty end of the spectrum @ 150W; as you can tell by the huge toroidal inductor and dual heatsinks.
Please note there is no reverse polarity protection. A series diode is recommended. For high loads this might not be an option; so be cautious of the input polarity or you might fry the module!
- Module Properties: non-isolated step-up module (BOOST)
- Input voltage :10-32V
- Output voltage: 12-35V (adjustable)
- Output Current: 10A (MAX)
- Input Current: 16A (MAX) (Please enhance heat dissipation if more than 10A)
- Output power: natural cooling 100W (MAX), enhance heat dissipation (fan cooling) 150W (MAX)
- People have reported the device operates at 45°C when powered from a 12V battery and charging a 19V 3.42A notebook
- Conversion efficiency: 94% @16VIN 19VOUT. This is fairly uniform, but will vary across the range.
- Output Ripple: 2% (MAX) 20M-bandwidth
- Operating Temperature: Industrial (-40°c to +85°c) (ambient temperature exceeds 40°c, lower power use, or to enhance heat dissipation)
- Full load temperature rise: 45°C
- No-load current: 25mA typical
- Voltage regulation: ± 0.5%
- Dynamic response speed: 5% 200uS
- Short circuit protection: None (we recommend a fuse and/or protection circuits at input)
- Input Reverse Polarity Protection: None (we recommend a series diode at the input port
- Adjustable power supply from car battery. Note though, the output voltage can't be lower than the input voltage. For example, if powered by 12V, this module could be used to drive 14-35V devices.
- High efficiency notebook charger: When this device is powered by 12V (your car battery for example), it could charge a laptop which typically requires 19V.
