Need wiring help!
« on: Dec 20, 2015, 10:16 PM »
Hey vod'e, I've found a couple nice little mics for my bucket, however I am having trouble finding a step-down to convert from a usb 5v down to its needed 1.5v. I've seen several multi-voltage adjustable step down boards, but they seem a bit excessive for my needs. Any advice?

Add random LEDs?

Well that's just a remarkably simple idea... I'm really new to the whole electronics thing ;D

Better electronic guys can chime in, but if my math is right a 2v 20mA Red LED (fairly standard) and a 82 ohm resistor is 3.5 volts.
