Main Question or Discussion Point
I have a DC to DC boost converter that I purchased. It is a DFrobot DFRO123. I tested the unit by putting a DC voltage supply of 6 volts in the Vin terminal and connected the negative of the supply to the ground terminal. Then I connected a volt meter to the Vout and ground terminal. The boost converter worked just fine. But when I connected the same setup to a 2.3 ohms load the voltage dropped below the supply voltage. So now the boost converter is not working. With the 6 volt supply across the load I typically get ~2.7 amps without the boost converter. My goal is to get roughly 8 volts and roughly 0.5 amps across the 2.3 ohm load. Does anyone have any suggestions on another type of boost converter to use, or can anyone let me know why the boost converter isn't working?
