24v 2.5a, 12v 3a 9v 1a, 12v 1a, 5v usb, and 12v cigarette lighter output.
there is also an adjustable 1.25 to 32v 5 amp, the problem i'm having is no mater what set up I try, I never get more than 1.8 amps out of the LM338, I have an input of 36v 10a, I've tried several diagram , can anyone point me to a diagram that will actually allow a full 5amps to be pulled?
I have the LM338 on a huge heat sink.
