Even one of the adjustable DC converters didn't even work. New stuff is on the way but annoying and tired of waiting for crap parts from China.
Ok, rant over.
I'm assuming you're following my design...
How do you know they did not work when received? You may have hooked something up wrong and fried something without even knowing it (you won't always have a 'pop' or have smoke come out).
Not defending the sellers or their crappy documentation but the odds are very much against it. The odds of receiving 4/4 defective products ordered from 2-3 different places is almost zero.
The amp/volt meters are the things that people have the most difficulty in wiring up right. I get tons of emails about them. The poor documentation they come with certainly doesn't help. I would throw out the instructions and follow what's on the product itself.
If indeed you truly did receive 4/4 bad products, go out and buy a lottery ticket today!
