FTDI FT232RL USB to TTL Serial Converter

Today I got my USB to Serial converter.
I need the converter for programming the ESP-01 I received a couple off days ago.
Actually I can program it with the arduino board but don’t want to.

I bought the converter on Ebay from a Chinese seller for the price of approx. $2 so properly not a origianal FTDI chip.
But hey! It works.

FTDI TTL Converter

Here is a picture of the board.

It has serial pin out at the bottom and mini usb on the top.
Along the sides is breakout of other, but not needed chip pins.

On the front it has a jumper setting for 3,3V and 5V.
Nice as ESP-01 is strictly 3,3V
