If there is one thing every project requires it is definitely electricity, and that is where this power supply comes in, introducing the MEGO.
The new MEGO portable power supply has been launched on Kickstarter and is designed specifically for the needs of electronics makers and hackers. MEGO fits in the palm of your hand and has outputs that plug directly into the power rails of any standard-size breadboard. You can also connect jumpers to the outputs if you are powering something else. MEGO itself can be powered and charged with a micro USB cable, or run from the battery (although, the team does not specify the capacity of that battery).
The total output is up to 6 Watts, and users can specify an output voltage anywhere from 4V to 24V. The regulated output is displayed on a digital readout, so you can be confident it's set correctly. We would have liked to see it go as low as 3.3V, but most of those 3.3V devices will still tolerate 4V.
The 6W max power is pretty low, so this won’t replace your benchtop power supply if you’re working with a lot of current in your projects. But, it’s great for the microcontroller-based projects most people are doing these days.
