Use the 3V out when running 3.3V logic, replaces 2 AA’s
4.5V will drive most 5V electronics just fine, or replace 3 AA’s
6V replaces 4 AA’s, with a 1n4001 in series it will give you a bit over 5V out
7.5V goes into most linear regulators with minimal dropout
9V as well, and also replaces a 9V battery
12V will drive many small DC motors and steppers.
Up to 1000 mA at any voltage! Chances are this can replace any of your power plugs and work as a portable, low cost bench-top supply. Only for use in 120V countries, if you have 220V you’ll need a transformer. US 2-prong plug that folds back. Comes with 6 common plugs.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

For those of you who aren’t aware, 1000mA = 1 Amp. I point this out due to the fact that there seems to be a frequent attempt here to quote large numbers without simplifying the units. Just take a look at the lipo batteries for further examples.
