    These are a collection of videos that will teach you the basics of electronics. These videos are an incredibly fast way to get up to speed on basic concepts required for building a portable. Every video I have selected is short and to the point, while providing the necessary information to grasp the concept.

    Tools:

    Soldering (beginners)


    Soldering (intermediate)


    Hand Tools


    Multimeters


    Concepts:

    Amps


    Volts


    Resistance + Ohms Law


    Power + Watts


    Amp-hour, Watt-hour and C ratings


    What kills you, Volts or Amps?

    Why do you need multimeters?

    Portables:
    sin^2(x) + cos^2(x) +e^(i*pi)
    To measure stuff pretty much, Ohms, continuity, Voltage DC and AC.
    helps troubleshoot, and make sure you are doing stuff right

    Quite litterally everything. When working with electronics, your multimeter is just as essential as your eyeballs.
