From the mail bag!

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.

Cheers,

Hopcounter


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.
