Teach your kids electronics

I could write a long motivational letter about the importance of teaching on electronics with all its basic trades of logical thinking and scientific methods, but instead I will leave you with the happy face of a 5 year old that completes her first little project 🙂

Chinese 1800 Watt Induction heater, 10 minute stress test at 1500W

This test is being run at 36VDC and everything stays cool over a course of 10 minutes, I would say it can run stable at this power input. The 5 minute test at 40VDC showed resonant capacitors heating up.

Test is powered by the “2200 Watt server power supply for induction heating”

2000 Watt laptop charger for induction heating

I built my first experimental cheap power supply for the 1800 Watt induction heater and it was a great success!

12 laptop chargers put together for 40V 51A.

Unboxing a Chinese 1800 Watt Induction heater

I finally got around to get the IH out of the box and repair it, here is part 1 of a series of videos on this IH.

This is a 1800 Watt Induction heater that I bought from ebay at 40 Euro, I avoided the cheapest seller for the simple reason that they all have bad reviews, so be sure to check that out before just buying the cheapest.

The future parts will be power supply building and testing.

Pete who started the thread has a wide ranged knowledge of induction heaters. Check out Pete Stanaitis website: https://spaco.org/Blacksmithing/ZVSInductionHeater/ZVS1800Watt/1800-2500WattZVSInductionHeaterNotes.htm and his take on the 1800W IH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S66Y-EZYhjo
