Hello everyone, I’ve been wondering how safe is it to plug a NR24L01 module which is ment to run on 3.3v on an arduino’s 5v output?
On some threads I’ve read that it’d just fry the lil’ bugger but since on the product page it said “3-12 3.3V” (yeah that’s incredibly clear eh?) I gave it a try anyway (otherwise some of my projects are being rendered more complicated >.<) - and it works like a charm.
One arduino is powering his NR24L01 on 3.3v and the other on 5v and they communicate just fine with maybe 5% loss at 20 meters - But I need someone to confirm that I’m not making a mistake because they are going to be remote controling some pretty dangerous appliances once I master their use and since dying in a fire doesn’t really appeal to me that much… (you’ve got to help me, i’d give Arduino such an incredibly bad reputation in the news u_u “stupid student gets killed by an arduino-powered RC toaster with built-in toothbrush”)
Thanks in advance =), and here’s a pic of the lil’ buggers - since most of the ones I see on this forum are black (not fair, they look better in black x) )
