21Mmto17Mmadapter Lrg

NEW PRODUCT – 2.1mm to 1.7mm DC jack adapter. For Chumby Hacker Board enthusiasts, we have an adapter that will let you use any off the shelf 5VDC regulated supply with a 2.1mm DC barrel plug.


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.

  1. The next evolutionary step for this is a universal barrel jack adapter.

    Half a dozen jacks connect to a box in the middle that lets you flip polarity, with half a dozen plugs coming out.

    The deluxe version has a voltage and current draw meter.

    I know there are “universal” power bricks, but the ones I’ve used don’t always have the power rating I need. Everybody already has a giant box of wall warts. But the odds of the plug, voltage, current & polarity matching what you need seem only to be about 1:10.
