After much demand, I have finally got a USB-Boarduino kit! This is a little smaller than the Boarduino but has USB built in and a 500mA fuse. It’s pretty much the same as the Boarduino in all other respects – just plug it into a breadboard for ez prototyping. I presolder and test the USB so its easy to assemble
I figure I should also mention the other stuff I added in the shop:
For my UK, European, and Australian customs I’ve added a multi-country 9V adapter, available with the ever-popular Arduino starter packs
Stacky headers! They are just like every-day 0.1″ headers but the legs are extra long.
These are very useful for stacking Arduino shields!
A USB to serial converter…some people have been having trouble getting a converter that works well with the minipov3 so I have found one that I’ve tested and works well. This one plugs right into a USB port or comes with a USB extender cable.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
