    where 0505= 5V in & 5V out.

    Either way, great looking board. I really like the idea of building them at a Mini!

    Very observant :-) Hang over from reusing parts in Eagle. Doh. Yes, in deed it would be a NKE0505, but i'm using an equivalent part and yes it is 5/5V. The boards are left over from another project i'm working on, and they are not perfect, but plenty good enough to work for what we need to do.

    'pressor: Got your back with my baby one if a better offer doesn't come past (we've got one in the warehouse worse case).
    Remind me closer to date.

    I'm in on the build if you didn't catch my mini-thread entry..

    i thought you could only bake the smd to solder them, i never would of thought to use a soldering iron an solder all the pins at once.

    1 question, how do you get it so the solder does'nt bridge out to the other tracks?

    Firstly the solder mask repeals the solder.. but mostly its technique.. the above video is from someone who is *very* good at it, but a bit of practice and you're all good.

    Having the right tip on your soldering iron makes a lot of difference as well.
