ON…off…ON…off…ON…off…ON…off…WE CAN’T STOP CLICKING THIS ON-OFF SWITCH! It has such a satisfying click and it works so well. Plus, it’s just about perfect for charging your Raspberry Pi – either Model B, A+, B+, or Pi 2. Just hook up the standard USB end to a 5V 1A USB port power supply or 5V 2A USB port power supply and the Micro B end to a Raspberry Pi and you have a Pi with a switch.
This cable will also work with anything that has a MicroUSB port. This cable does not transfer data – so it’s mostly just good for powering and charging devices – but adding an on/off switch to your power supply is a nice addition and one that we absolutely love clicking.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
