NEW PRODUCTS – USB 3-Way Charging Cable & USB ‘Noodle’ Cable
NEW PRODUCT – USB ‘Noodle’ Cable – A/MicroB – Linguine? Rice sticks? Soba? Whatever your favorite noodle may be, you will be pleasantly reminded whenever using this noodle-shaped cable. This here is your standard A to micro-B USB cable, for USB 1.1 or 2.0 – but in a slim profile and classic Adafruit Black. Perfect for connecting a PC to your Arduino Leonardo/Micro, Raspberry Pi, NETduino, (among other things). Basically: it has a microUSB port? This will work!
Approximately 3 feet / 1 meter long. 26 AWG power wires, 28 AWG data wires.
NEW PRODUCT – USB 3-Way Charging Cable – iPhone 5/iPhone/iPad and MicroUSB – For charging nearly any kind of portable gadget, this 3-in-1 cable can handle it. Great for use with a Mintyboost, or our USB power packs (or just powering your projects). One USB-A jack splits into three connectors: Micro USB, iPhone/iPad/iPod 30pin (for older iDevices) and the newer Lightning (newer iDevices).
Approximately 6″ long from end to end, it’s a little more compact than our classic 3′ long cables.
Keep in mind, This cable does not contain a hub, so you should only connect one USB device at a time (to either end).

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.
