Adjustable LM2596 DC-DC Step-down/Buck Regulator

Adjustable LM2596 DC-DC Step-down/Buck Regulator

Regular price R 45.00
Buck regulators, or Step-down regulators take a higher voltage input and convert to a lower voltage output.
Other names for the product are switching regulators, DC-DC converter, and switched-mode power supplies (SMPS).  These are much more efficient than simple linear voltage regulators, like the 7805.
For example, if you want to run a 5V LED strip, but your battery is 12V,you can use this to efficiently switch the voltage.
