This low cost power adapter helps you turn different power source into a regular 3.3V output on the two Qwiic connectors, and a direct connection to power source which could be used for driving some high current or higher voltage device, like Qwiic DC motor driver board, Qwiic Servo controller module, Qwiic LED driver board that requires higher current or 5.0V.
The module has a step down DC-DC regulator that could technically allows up to 37V on the input side, but usually you won’t use such high voltage power source for Qwiic project. USB 2.0 adapter charger (5V, 1-2A output) for your smartphone is a very good option.
