hey thanks The protection is coming from the step-down converter it has for short-circuit and overload too. ;)
hey thanks.So "any load" will mainly depend on the step-down bucket converter you buy. About the current limit is a good question, you cannot see what is the current limit until you have a load in there so what I do is get the current all the way down, put the load and start increasing the knob so I'll see where is getting for the current voltage pre set and I can stop anytime.

How to create a simple oscilloscope with arduino and tft lcd
great! if you create something around it please share your build I think it's even better for others to see ideas/ mutations around it in the comments
nice build, I got a comment from supernoodle2014 with the idea of getting a battery as psu to make it portable, you got just that :)
yup you'r right good catch! I haven't gone into that case yet but I think there is enough room inside the box to get a good heat sink for the regulator. If I get there I'll give the update here for sure.thanks!
thanks man, yeah I'm not too deep in electronics yet (it's a hobby for me) so my current needs are much easier to achieve :)
Portable Wireless ( bench/pocket ) Power Supply Booster, 4.5V to 29V, and 5V Phone Charger Also.
oh your 'ible is awesome!, thanks
mm so it will really depend on the current supported of your psu and your step-down, I did some tries with small motors and didn't had any issues so far
oh that's a good point, I haven't really think about this one as a battery charger but yeah if you'r gonna use same PSU for more than one you'll get same ground for them, maybe for that case just using another power source for each charger idk
