Load regulation is the characteristic that shows how much the output voltage changes before and after the output current is increased.

This is expressed by the _mV change in the output voltage when the output current is changed from _mA to _mA. As the output current increases, the output voltage decreases, so generally the electrical characteristics of these products are fixed.

In the example below, we can see the voltage decreases by 50 mV when the current is changed from 1 mA to 50 mA.
