Two years of ordering from Adafruit (review)

Two years of ordering from Adafruit (review)..

Two years on here’s the dirt: Adafruit rocks! Why? Thorough tutorials; most new products include great tutorials! Top notch product support and community forums. Discount code every week (check out their youtube channel). Well packaged parts with part numbers on every bag. (total 11 orders)

Thank you! We’ve also updated our packaging with black boxes too!


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.

  1. Hate to badmouth Sparkfun but there is some truth to what this rant says. Seeed isn’t that bad though they have some good custom shields. It just takes forever to ship here that is all.

  2. So much hate, mixed with a bizarre undercurrent of nationalism (“pervasive offshore ‘ICK!’ smell”?). Shouldn’t we strive to lift the dialog above this level?

    I order regularly from all three places, since all three fill a slightly different “niche,” and I’m happy to support three businesses founded and run by makers with such a passion for what they’re doing.
