The WeMos D1 Mini family of boards is one of the latest additions to the ESP8266-based IoT ecosystem. The WeMos D1 Mini DC Power 7~24VDC Shield allows you to add a DC power supply to your WeMos mini or mini Pro development boards. Using a center-positive DC barrel jack or 2-pin 2.0mm-pitch terminal, you can supply power to the project using any voltage between 7~24VDC and output a max current of 1.2A.
The WeMos D1 Mini DC Power Shield is designed so that the power input passes through an MP2359 monolithic step-down switch mode converter. This allows us to use a range of voltages, as well as a larger current than through the Micro-USB connector of the WeMos D1 Mini development board.
What makes the WeMos family of development boards for the ESP8266 great is the availability of stackable, plug-and-play shields such as this WeMos D1 Mini DC Power Shield. Without much fuss, it’s very easy to connect, control, and monitor a wide variety of electronic components to the ESP8266. The WeMos family is a great solution for building projects quickly using the ESP8266 SoC.
Different users have different applications for the WeMos shields, thus we’ve found that the easiest way to please everyone is to ship the boards with the headers unsoldered. Each board in this kit includes a pair of Male, Female, Long Female pin headers for you to choose. Soldering is required for installing the header pins!
