Just wanted to shout out to the awesome folks at Adafruit. I bought a few Mintyboost kits, one for me and
one to go through with a friend to teach him soldering. Well I put mine together and sure enough it wasn’t working.
I went back and bridged D- and D+ (I have an iPhone4) and I kept getting the “Not compatible” message. I rechecked
everything and even pulled out the camera and took photos, thinking I would have to post for help. Well after reading
ALL of the “read before posting” I finally double checked the new batteries. They were only putting out 1.3 V. Swapped
fresh batteries and it totally works now. I haven’t rechecked the voltages now that it’s working but I was getting 3.1 V out of
D-D+ and 5V. I should be 2V correct? Anyway, thanks for what is possibly the best customer service in any industry.
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.
