The best way to learn Electrical Engineering is by doing it. Yeah!
Either you are learning Electrical Engineering as part of your subject or as hobby, the best way is to make your own mini lab. Let’s explore some of the most important electrical and electronic tools you should get for your lab.
There are two common methods which can be used to make circuits:
Make prototype on breadboards
Solder them on PCB or veroboards
For soldering components on PCB you need a soldering gun. Altough a soldering gun itself does the work, you might want a soldering station that which is strongly recommened if you are doing electronics for long time. Get a sponge with gun.
We all know that a digital multimeter measures voltage, current, and resistance in a circuit. While many cheap multimeters are available in market you get some high quality meters from UNI-T of Fluke.
An essential for all your wiring tasks.
You might want a plier which suits your electronic needs so look for it.
While removing insulation from ends of wire, many times we mess with it which results in damaging the wire itself instead of insulation. A wire stripper is handy tool for removing the insulation from wires.
You need it while dealing with screws.
Electronics wires include Jumper wires, Alligator wires and other wires (as shown in video).
DC Power supply
A dc power supply provides variable dc power to your circuits.
