If you want your circuits to work right, you gotta have the right components for the job. This tutorial will help you make sure you know what you're doing.
Don't get burned on your next build. The proper heatsink can save you from burnt fingers and burned up devices!
This is one for the most unique approaches ever for keeping track of time.
