Step 1: Parts

Picture of Parts

The parts I used for this project is:

* 5v to 12v step up

* Wires

* Small project box

* 4 male pins


* Breadboard

* 4x battery holder / USB cable

Step 2: Make It Fit

Picture of Make It Fit

My 5-12v step up did not fit in the box I have so I had to cut off the wire connectors and solder the wires to the board instead of screwing them to it.

Step 3: The Power Connectors

Picture of The Power Connectors

Solder two male headers to an 2x2 PCB and than the + and - cable to the pins, do that to both cables.

Step 4: The Box

Picture of The Box

Make two holes one one side of the box and one on the other side, the holes have to be big inouf for the cables.

Step 5: Soldering

Take 6 wires and solder 4 to the input and 2 to the output.

Step 6: Mounting

Screw the two input wires to + and - on the breadboard connectors, and connect 5v to the red and black connectors.
