10Dbm to 3W Wideband amplifiers from China

I bought 3 Ebay/Amazon/Alibaba 3 watt amps. Found no heat transfer grease under the board. Check yours. This would lead to early failure.

Might be good to share which modules you’re talking about.

There are several models. They are 2-700 MHz up to 5-2000 MHz. All in the under $25 range.
Here is the model I bought.

I do recall at least 1 person burning them up in use. Checking for heat transfer grease is a good idea.
