Thanks for posting this contraption. Have utmost faith that it will last forever & not drain the battery one day grin The video was great - what are the four fx? I saw temperature (air), bat voltage, and I think time- don't know what the "0008" was. I'm also interested in how bright it may be at night. Sometimes that blue can be annoying if it's too bright.

Volts. Reads U
Temp. Not accurate, probably pics up residual heat
Amps. 000A

I think it reads amps from the two usb ports when the phone is charging

An amber light would be better, but the blue is not blazing

I like it, even the blue lights, does it come in 6v??????


Kiddin' of course. But it wouldn't hurt to hook my lighter
socket up to the voltage booster circuit that powers my
tach and Sony. I smoke no more so the 6v lighter has
never been used.

Now that I think about it, most of those devices operate on
5v anyway......I just wonder........naw, got enough projects
goin' on now. Like to see what would happen if you did plug
that into a 6v system, I'm bet it would work.
