Last Friday, we released the Elektor DIY Supercharger Kit (by Great Scott!). This kit provides all the materials needed to build a DIY supercharger/booster. Once assembled, it can charge a single-cell LiPo battery; protect it against the effects of overvoltage, overload, and short-circuits; and and can boost battery voltage to 5 V or 12 V. SparkFun engineer Alex Wende spent some time with the kit before we released it and wrote a comprehensive review (as published in ElektorMag – please take a moment to download it and read it.
