PART FINDER FRIDAY – 2xAA closed holder with 6″ wires and switch
PART FINDER FRIDAY – 2xAA closed holder with 6″ wires and switch. These come in a few different battery sizes and configurations but we like the classic 2xAA holder for kits like the mintyboost. There’s a built in switch (bonus!) and a cover with a screw to hold it in place. if you’re making a basic electronic project that can run on 2-3V (which some low power micros) then this solves your power problem. Of course, they come in 3xAA or 4xAA as well!
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.
