    Product description

    This PowerPOD is capable of taking a 5.1v to 16v input to give a 5v regulated output. It's often used to power 5v devices from 4 AA batteries, 9 to 12v PSU's etc. At 12v and above keep current consumption down to minimise heat.


    The Power POD range make it really easy to swap, test, develop and build your projects. Rather than simple break out boards, all Power PODs follow the same layout so they are interchangeable. The layout is also the same as the venerable 7805 style regulator:

    • Power PODs are the same 4 pin layout (swap and change with ease)
    • Power PODs are pre built (all those tiny surface mount parts you dont have to worry about)
    • Range of supported voltages with similar shaped modules  (step up, step down, liner regulators and chargers all in the series)
    • Some regulators support enable or bypass (extra functionality accessed with ease)


    • 1117 Low Drop Out Regulator
    • Input - 16V Max
    • Output - 5V0
    • Max Current - 800mA
    • Comon Pinout accross the PowerPOD Range
    • Made in the UK
