Info: USB Tester 2.0

Purchase: Tindie or


Included Parts:

  • 1x PCB
  • 16pin Male Header
  • 1 2pin Jumper

The assembly is similar to the VA Tester, except only one pin to remove. Having the voltage pins being separated allows easy use of test clips and stops accidental placement of the jumper.

1. Cut apart the headers pins in the follow arrangement.

  • 1x – 2pin
  • 2x – 5pin
  • 1x 3pin
2. Using pliers remove the center pin for the 3pin set.  USBTester2.0_Asm_2
3. Insert each header in and flip over. You may want to put cardboard underneath as the pins get hot and can melt anything you are resting the USB Tester on. USBTester2.0_Asm_4
    4. Solder 1 pin from each header. Flip over check each header that it is flush and straight to your liking.
    6. Flip back over and solder the rest of the headers.
    7. Now you are set. When not measuring current use the jumper on the 2pin header.
