Welcome. I wanted to provide stripboard layouts I've made to help people new to electronics and even the more experienced get into different aspects of electronics.

DC 0-19.99V Blue LCD Digital Volt Panel Meter Voltmeter Review

Originally this had a glowing report, it worked well and was accurate - the original one was broken and so they sent me a new one HOWEVER
once I got the new one, I did this review and put it in a box for use at a later date.
After someone got in touch with me asking me for the connections (they don't provide them) I thought I would get it out so I could let them know.

The LED backlight lit up, then nothing else happened - I triple checked everything and still nothing.
so about 7 months stuck in a box waiting to be used has some way made it stop working.
the box was not thrown,dropped or mistreated - it was an ESD safe container. So I am going to contact the seller (who I linked below this) let them know it's shit and give them opportunity to explain - 2 failing through no fault of my own is completely unacceptable.  


  1. Did you ever get a response from lu_cytime208 ?
    He's a thief and a liar. Google his ebay ID and you'll see what I mean.
    This was my experience with this turd:
    I bought an Arduino component tester and received a defective one. Sent him messages.. no response. I opened an eBay case and he finally sent me a replacement. Took a whole month to receive, but what I got was only an LCD screen!!!
    He then refused to refund me, and requested I send back the defective item for a refund, knowing damn well that it would cost me more in postage than it was worth it. Of course by then I could not leave feedback, and this is a known tactic of this seller and other thieves like him: Make empty promises and delay until you're out of options and you can't do anything about it.
    I was out $15 and could not even leave Neg feedback.
    I've learned my lesson.. I open cases right away and I keep a sharp eye on my feedback deadline.
