You can support Hardware Insights! Power supply testing requires not only lots of knowledge, but also a lot of sophisticated equipment. There is always something new to measure or do it better and more precisely! And the better the equipment, the higher the purchase cost. Below are a couple of things I would like to get, you can of course donate for anything you like or to no particular goal as running the site also has its costs (hosting, domain etc.). If you have suggestions feel free to let me know.

For those who would like direct bank account transfer within Europe, see my Czech website for transparent bank account.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ38 is a step forward from the FZ4, but by today’s standards it is also falling behind, not to mention the vast amounts of hot pixels (which make it unusable for RAW anyway). So maybe something better yet?
