May I be so free to ask a question?
Can I use an S-Booster of 9 Volt on the Sonore Optical Module,
because I am using it on a TP-Link MC220L and wish to replace it with the Sonore Optical Module.
I read somewhere that the Module can get quite hot on the S-Booster

Best regards,
Fernand Lambert

I initially used a 9v SBooster with my optical Module and I found it to get quite hot. It was not too hot to keep your finger on but it made me uncomfortable to have the unit that hot. I switched to a SGC 5v supply. All you can do is try it, the heat shouldn’t damage the unit (hopefully). 9v is really overkill for the oM.

At 9v, it'll be quite hot, even with 7v it'll be quite warm.  I use 5v and they're basically room temp.

I use a 5V switch mode power supply with a MPAudio SD-HPULN PS in between. Input of the SD-HPULN PS is 5V, output is 4,4V. The opticalModule works fine at 4,4V. I'll tidy op the connectors and housing once I'm settled on the use of the SD-HPULN PS. The large heatsink is not necessary. The opticalModule does get warm without but not hot. This heatsink keeps it luke warm.1128579274_2020-01-1419_37_39.thumb.jpg.5cc1f32d37f3f1a64dff6db1a318d938.jpg
