In this science short, we’ll look at how to use the LTC3108 ultra-low voltage booster/controller chip and breakout board and how this remarkable microchip can even power electronics using peltier tiles to convert your body heat into electricity.
In this video, I used the CJMCU 3108 breakout board.

This is the surface mount transformer I got from Mouser: https://www.mouser.ca/ProductDetail/994-LPR6235-752SMRB
(about $3 Canadian each)
Here’s the component map of the breakout board correlated with the Analog Electronics schematic from the datasheet:
Here’s the pinout if you want to solder an non-surface mount transformer:
