As of August 2018 the State of California has changed the requirements of the “Prop 65” law. We now must list on our website any possible chemicals the can cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive problem.
As an example:
ABS plastic contains styrene
PVC wire insulation can contain Di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP)
electrolytic capacitors can contain Ethylene glycol
Brass can contain Lead
flame retardant pc boards can contain Tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA)
Aluminum alloys can contain Chromium
To put it simply we are a small company and do not have the resources to test every single part, so we list every thing as hazardous. Please recycle all electronic parts responsibly and under no circumstance eat, drink or smoke these parts and wash your hands after touching!
I found that this Boost Converter has serious limitations. It is rated at 6A, but only under ideal input/output conditions:
With 3VDC input and 5VDC output, it only can supply 1A.
With 5VDC input and 7.5VDC output, it only can supply 3A.
With 12.3VDCinput and 15.4VDC output, it can supply 5.5 A, which is 85W.
This is above the listed rating of 50W on MPJA, although the same converter on Amazon is rated at 100W ?.
I was disappointed as I wanted to use it as variable bench power supply. It is not suitable for this application.

very accurate voltmeter
While this is a good Boos converter, it also has a very accurate voltmeter, two products for the price of one!
