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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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. Thanks.

    The big battery works great — easily a couple of charges for the phone. It also worked with an iPad 3.

    It would be nice to have a state-of-charge indicator…

  2. Watch out, the minty does not have an over discharge cutoff.. Its designed to keep pulling juice until the source battery runs dry. If you drain the lion battery I think it will become damaged. Just what I’ve read however, and anyone who knows better feel free to correct. πŸ™‚

  3. Scott, that is not true – all Adafruit lithium ion batteries come with discharge-cutoff protection circuitry. Please read our lipoly tutorial http://ladyada.net/learn/lipoly/ to learn more about this topic! πŸ™‚
