mutant hats voltage reg

Post by livefreela » Sun Jul 06, 2014 9:01 am

he guys - misplaced my 78l05 somewhere, but have otherwise got this built up, anyone know if a regular (tabbed package) l7805cv regulator would blow this thing up / otherwise harm? i've got a few spares of those - they fit mechanically with some slightly larger spacers, but i'm not sure if there'd be anything problematic in the circuit.. thx!

It looks like they both have the same pin ordering. Also, the L7805CV is rated for more current. Just don't install it backwards and you should be fine.
