    Hi Everyone, :cool:

    I'm looking for a boost converter module that I can purchase that can boost 5V to 17V 2.2A or 24V 1.6A. Where can I buy such a module?

    Regards,
    Dollarday

    A quick search didn't result in any 5->24V capable of 50 Watts (5V@10A input). Only mA output current ranges (<1A)

    Didn't find any for 17V at all.

    What is the function for this? Perhaps there is an easier way to go about it?

    It sounds like a laptop power supply. You can get them from 12v->17v commonly enough.

    But a boost circuit from 5v->17v at 2.2A would need about 9.5A from the 5v supply.

    Since very few people have a 5v 10A supply handy there won't be many 5v->17v converters available in that current range.
