    Hi, i found a circuit that is easy to make but i want to modify it a bit...
    The circuit is based on L200 voltage and current regulator.
    So, like this i can get maximum 2A current in output...
    How can i get 5A output? What do i have to modify??
    The link for the circuit is this: http://www.zen22142.zen.co.uk/Circuits/Power/l200var.html

    and the schematic is this:

    thanks in advance! :)

    Not offhand. There are 5A regulators out there though. Not sure they have adjustable current limit, but there is sometimes a circuit in the datasheet to do it externally.
