10 Gift Ideas For Electrical Engineers In 2021 | Voltlog #389

If you are an electrical or electronics engineer then you probably noticed how non-technical people around you are struggling when it comes to choosing a gift for you and if you are a non-technical person and you need to buy a gift for an engineer, then this video is for you so stick around.

Unlike other similar videos which will generally recommend gift ideas without actually testing them, I’m  going to recommend stuff that I personally own and have used for enough time to know if it’s any good or not. For all of the stuff shown in this video there will be links in the description to Banggood, Amazon or Aliexpress which are the usual places where I do my shopping and I decided to release this video a little early because there is the 11.11 shopping festival on Aliexpress and Banggood and you might get some nice discounts on these orders.

IV-18 VFD Clock Kit Assembly | Votlog #388

Welcome to a new Voltlog, in this video I will show you how I assembled this VFD tube based clock, I like the looks of this clock very much it’s kind of steampunk type of style and because this is a kit, it’s widely accessible to anyone, you don’t need very specific tools to get this assembled and I believe anyone can put one together. As a bonus this clock, although it doesn’t include one in the kit, it can support connecting a GPS receiver for syncing the clock and on top of that you get a remote control so you can control it from a distance which is pretty neat if you ask me.

I got this particular kit from banggood and you’ll find a link in the description of the video if you are interested in getting one, I think it’s important to watch this video before you start the assembly because you might find some inadvertencies between the provided user manual and the actual kit that you receive.

This is what you will receive in the box and this is pretty much all needed for a functional clock, if you are missing the stuff shown here you might be unable to complete your clock build. Like I previously said the GPS module is optional but depending on where you live you might not get GPS reception in an apartment building for example so it might be useless to you anyway.
