The regulator can handle 1A, but I'd be more concerned about the dropout voltage. 6V is the minimum voltage acceptable for the worst case dropout voltage. The diode exacerbates the problem.Or, what current range is safe?
That's for a typical device. The worst case dropout voltage at 1A is 1V.OK for a 6Vdc supply at 1A output
As I said. The OP needs to know that a worst case device won't work. They can decide what to do with the information.Hi dl324,
I know it's for a typical device.
I have found in many years of using electronic components, the typical specifications cover over 70% of the devices purchased from reliable sources.
Very rare to have problems, when the device supporting circuity has been correctly designed.
