Introduction: 3 Easy Steps to Make a Voltage Divider
For another project of mine, I needed a voltage divider from 12V to 5V. Looking on internet I found many fancy, complicated, powerful, etc schematics. So, I decided to build very simple one. Is not my original idea, you can find it on internet as well but was looking some time for it. I like it because is simple and I decided to share it with community.

Step 1: What You Need
- 15k resistor
- 10k resistor
Step 2: Prepare
Strip three wires on both ends. Solder the two resistors at one end and one wire between them. Solder the other two wires to free ends of resistors. That's all folks.
Step 3: How to Use It
15k resistor free end is to be connected to 12V, 10k resistor free end is to be connected to GND and middle wire is the 5V output.
