It’s been about 1,5 to 2 years since I started the project to create my own wirelessly controlled PWM LED dimmer. Since that time I’ve kept refining the PCB and code and this post will be a sort of revisit and revision history of QuinLED.
In future posts and videos we will be doing a new tutorial on what components you need, how to solder it all together, program the ESP8266 and link it to Domoticz. I also plan to create posts about the LED Power wall I’m going to build to house everything centralized in my house. Continue reading ESP8266 LED Lighting: Revisit and history of QuinLED
After recently testing a moving LED charging cable I thought I’d do another Quick Charge test of different LED charging cable. No running lights this time but just illumination. Will it survive Quick Charge 9v and 12v? Continue reading Live test of another LED charging cable
Although not much of an IT update, I did a new walk-through over the build site of the new house! Continue reading Home Networking: Second walkthrough
I thought I would do a quick tutorial about a tool I use each day called: FolderSync! Maybe it’s something you needed but never knew about! Continue reading Tutorial: Foldersync
My Ducky Shine 2 keyboard was starting to show some wear, especially around the WASD keys. So I looked around and I ordered some (real) metal keycaps! Continue reading Metal keycaps for your keyboard
Browsing the interwebs and having found the 99 cent mouse in the previous post I looked further and found a Mechanical Backlit keyboard for about 40 dollars! And from what I could find, it might actually be the real deal. So I ordered one and it arrived this week. Let’s take a look shall we. Continue reading True Mechanical keyboard for 40$
While browsing around on Ebay I found a computer “gaming” mouse for sale for only 0.99$! That couldn’t be true and if it was, it would have to be utter crap. But I was curious and I just happened to have a spare 0.99$ lying around so I ordered it. It arrived this week! Continue reading A 99 cent computer mouse?!
Recently I reviewed a lot of micro-USB charging cables to see how well they would do during normal charging and using Qualcomm Quick Charge. So I thought I would review another micro-USB cable, this time with some cool lighting effects!
Continue reading Running LED cable test with Quick Charge
Well that title is very clear. This article links to my video I made about computer cleaning! Continue reading Clean your computer or it might EXPLODE!
As you’ve been able to read in previous posts, I’m working on a lighting system in my new home based on LED downlights and LED strip.
Although the LED Downlights can come with a driver, I’ve opted not to use those (and save about ~5$ per light). I will be driving both directly with DC power. This requires me to have a large amount of DC wattage. And since buying power supplies for this is an investment, I’ve decided to test a few “cheap” Chinese models vs Mean Well models to see how they compare and which would be the best investment.
