As long as the coil is soldered onto the board, you should be safe running a test, If they blow then, there is a problem with the boards.
Understand, i have to find a converter capable in Ampere like 12v 10A ? My caps are less than 5A only the 19M go up a little more at 12v. I plan to use for myself or friends with previousaamperage check.
That's what I was wondering in my head I figured if you went blow the rated 5 volt there could be the issues and if you win above the 12 volt there could be issuesYou want to wire the unit using 18 gauge or bigger. You want a switch - momentary. These things continue to get hotter if you just leave them on. Turning down the power on the VVPS could cause issues. There is that pesky minimum 5V specification.
Dang you're right that's why it was so much more difficult with the wiring because they had the LED lights I'm assuming that's why there's four wires coming off of the button I imagine if you just have a plain Jane push button you connect the positive to the positive then back out to the power supply adapter and the negative to the negative back out to the power supply adapter? Probably only two posts on that button compared to the four with the LED ones. Please correct me if I'm wrong?I like that meter. That will give you some decent feedback.
I like simple myself. Find a momentary switch that can push 8 amps minimum. Then you don't need the MOSFET switch solution so universally being used. Don't worry about a lighted switch - that just makes it more difficult to understand the wiring.
Can I ask your honest opinion? I already have the SJK which is the cheap Chinese one which I'm sure you're aware of?
I think it might be worth investing in the ddave mod adapter. https://www.ddavemods.com/store/p73/The_IH_(Induction_Heater)_Hands-Free_Mod.htmlCan I ask your honest opinion? I already have the SJK which is the cheap Chinese one which I'm sure you're aware of?
I'm adding everything up and without a housing the DIY one with 8 amp power supply will come out to about the same money as the SJK. Do you think the DIY would be a noticeable improvement or a relatively the same
I went the cheap route and drilled out a cork to position the DynaVap the same.lolI think it might be worth investing in the ddave mod adapter. https://www.ddavemods.com/store/p73/The_IH_(Induction_Heater)_Hands-Free_Mod.html
I got the parts on the way with the variable voltage power supplyI have never tried the SJK so that I cannot compare. The big difference is tunability.
I'm sorry I wasn't clear it's not DIY it's a complete build that isn't a 3D printed box. In order to charge you have to remove the 18650 batteries and charge them alone there is no charge port on the device. Maybe that is why?I built my first IH for under $20. I'd say build your first one and then look further.
If you want portable at a value price, connect with Pipes for a HotShot. $100 for a DIY seems a bit high.
Besides that, an IH with a BMS can have an issue if your tough the BMS while changing the batteries. It requires a power source on the the output to reboot the BMS. That cured me of not providing the charge plug. It is part of the BMS and just needs a connector. That should solve charging in place unless it isn't fully wired as instructed.
That is why a lack of charge port seems odd since all you need is a connector on the output of the BMS and pump 12.6V in at some limited current range.
