Step 2: Circuit Diagram & Construction

Picture of Circuit Diagram & Construction

Now assemble the circuit on a PCB & solder all the joints & then connect the DC fan to the output & power the circuit to run your cooling pad

For the box i used component storage box of the size 12inch*8inch*2inch. I made two holes at the top & the bottom of the box according to the DC fan so that air can enter & leave. I secured the fan with some net & screw.

For spacers i used bottle caps
