Booster converters?

4
Posted 9th May
Has any tried using these? Are they reliable.
I’ll be looking at 12v input. Around 24v output minimum.
Will mess around with the current.

What current does your device output? And what’s the heat like? Thank you

I've got couple of up and down converters.
Something like this one: aliexpress.com/ite…z7I may fit your requirements.
It has an aluminum base plate which can be glued to a radiator. It's not the greatest (but it's cheap). It creates some transients as it powers (good to check on an oscilloscope if you have one available). The output voltage fluctuates badly if the input is lower than 7V. For the money, worth the try.

This doesn't fit your requirements, but it's pretty good for low currents (like making use of discharged batteries): aliexpress.com/ite…L3I I paid less than £0.3 (shipping included).

quick question, have you ran one with reliability? giving out constant voltage without popping?

I'm afraid I haven't done too many tests to check how reliable they are.
