PROS
- The two small heat sinks also fit perfectly on a LM2596 buck converter voltage regulator
CONS
- 2-sided sticky tape on the back doesn't seem like a very good thermal conductor. Strip it off with solvent and apply heat sink compound paste instead.
I got this to use the small heat sinks on a the LM2596 regulators used in buck converters so they could actually be used near their maximum power ratings without cooking themselves. So far so good, but I had to strip that 2-sided sticky tape nonsense off the back of them first and then apply actual thermal heat sink compound paste so it could actually work most efficiently.
