Voltlog #150 – Quick Update

Welcome to a new voltlog, in this video I’m gonna give you guys a few updates on what’s going on. So I’ve been working on the bigclown review, I’ve built my project which is collecting data and I am visualizing the data with Grafana which is very nice but I’m gonna wait a few more days before I collect more data and then I’m going to release my review of the bigclown kit.

Voltlog #140 – ISDT Q6 Plus Lipo Charger Repair

Welcome to a new Voltlog, this will be a repair video, because my ISDT Q6 Plus battery charger has failed. If you remember Voltlog #109 I did a review of this charger and I’ve been using it quite often since I got it, with no issues whatsoever, until a few days ago, I think I was just storage charging some batteries, I did 2 batteries and when it was time for the 3rd battery to go on it would not start anymore, it was saying, “current operation is not supported”.

Voltlog #139 – Aneng AN8009 Multimeter Review

In Voltlog #114 I reviewed the Aneng 8008 and I said it’s probably the best $25 multimeter that you can buy. Today we are taking a look at the Aneng AN8009 which is a newer model from Aneng. 

In the end I would say this new AN8009 model is just as good as the AN8008 and they are both great beginner multimeters but they can also be good for the more advanced user who better understands their limitations.

My recommendation is to take a look at the differences between the two and choose based on your needs: ask yourself, do I need temperature measurements? Do I need the extra resistance range? Or do I need the square wave output. Better yet, and this is what I would do, I would get both models to have all of those functions when needed. Also it’s good to have two multimeters because you can measure both voltage and current at the same time.

Here are some links where you can get the Aneng 8009:

Voltlog #120 – Mini DC Power Supply Review

So I guess a gadget like this is worth 10$ because you could replace that linear breadboard power supply with a more efficient one, which will give you voltage and current display as well as adjustable output.

Here are some images I took during the teardown of the mini power supply:

Voltlog #119 – NEW 150W Dummy Load Review

Today we are taking a look at yet another electronic load. I found this one on Aliexpress, I think it’s a rather new model so let’s see what it can do.

Here are links to the 150W and the 180W version of this dummy load:

Voltlog #115 – Pure Sine Wave Inverter Circuit Waveforms

This is a followup video on the 300W pure sine wave inverter I reviewed a couple of weeks ago.  A couple of people we’re curious how the output mosfets are switched in order to obtain that nice looking sine wave on the output.

Voltlog #114 – Aneng AN8008 Probably The Best $25 Multimeter

Today we are taking a look at the ANENG AN8008 multimeter. This product was sent to me by banggood.com free of charge for the purpose of this review. They also sent me an ESD mat, because I have two benches in here in only one of them had an ESD mat so I needed a second one.

There is also a newer model, the AN8009 which I also reviewed, you can read about it here.

Voltlog #113 – 300W Pure Sine Wave Inverter Review & Teardown

Today we are taking a look at a 300W pure sine wave inverter which was provided for free by banggood.com for the purpose of this video. First we take a look at it’s output on the oscilloscope and then we continue with a teardown of the inverter.
