After discovering that my voltage divider based power supply didn't work very well, I set out to figure out how to make an better one. You are not really building anything but it is all done for you and you don't have to mess with any AC power (Very dangerous). But still, all power supplies have large capacitors in them that can hold ALOT of voltage. Just stick to my diagrams and you will be fine.
Step 1: Parts
Old appliance (must have a AC input)
- DVD players
- Stereos (not sound bars)
Gloves (recomended in case wires short out)
