How to inrease output current in DC-DC SX1308 stepup converter

(Read 162 times)
Hello ,
I'm using DC-DC SX1308 step up converter to step up voltage from 3.7(18650 battery pack in 4P combination ) to run a 12V motor . But this converter giving very low output current. Now, how can I increase this current for this voltage combination (input:3.7V ,output:12V) . Please help me and give any idea .
Thanks in advance.
(I'm new in Electronics)

Well that depends on the converter power rating. Even if for example it could give you 2A but at 12V that is 24W. If the converter power is below 20W, it won't be able to give you 2A. You need a more powerful converter

Thanks for your reply.
If i try to use 2 of this device in parallel . will it make any difference? Because I have 5 of this device  and I don't want to buy any new one.

Actually is not recommended to palce convertes in parallel since their output is never EXACTLY the same so the feedback from one will affect the feedback from the other one and might result in two damaged modules. It might work, but is not recommended. Is better to use just one higher power module.
