Make your own powerfull Bluetooth Speaker with some extra features, easy explained, cheap and handy to use for less then 15$.
Maybe you have some components which you don’t need to buy like 5W speakers and some lithium batteries to make it less expensive like I did.
In the following steps I will try to explain on the easiest way how to assemble this bluetooth speaker, people who don’t know a lot of electronics will understand I hope 🙂
This speaker has a very long battery life when you use good 18650 lithium batteries.
I found 4x 18650 lithium batteries which I used in parallel and has a total of 6000mah, the speaker plays over 24 hours on the highest volume which is very loud.
You can charge the speaker with a micro USB, which is very handy!
I also added a voltmeter display wich I bought on ebay so I will know when the batteries are almost empty.
The last new thing I added to the speaker is the 5V usb out so you can charge your smartphone or other stuff.
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.
