    Hi!

    I am working on my project nowadays. The output current of the power supply that I am using is around 500mA. As I used this supply to other modules in my projects, the current is getting smaller because the modules are in parallel. Can you suggest any device/electronic component that will retain the voltage of the supply but will amplify the current to supply all the modules that I have.

    Note:
    I have 5 modules that requires 12V supply with a minimum of 350mA current requirements.

    Any help about this matter is deeply appreciated. Thank you!!!

    Hello,

    You can not amplify the current of a powersupply.
    You will have to use a larger powersupply capable of 2 Amp, to have a bit of headroom.

    Is that 350 mA each module, or the total for all modules. When picking a supply, be sure it is regulated, or supply your own regulators.
