NEW PRODUCTS – Particle.io: Electron Kit 3G (Eur/Afr/Asia) / Power Shield with Headers / Asset Tracker 2G / Asset Tracker 3G (Amer/Aus) / Asset Tracker 3G (Eur/Afr/Asia) / Sensor Kit 3G (Amer/Aus) / Sensor Kit 3G (Eur/Afr/Asia)


We’ve got seven new Particle products to offer you! So, without any delay, here they are:

3453 kit ORIG

First is the Electron Cellular IoT Kit – 3G Eur/Afr/Asia. The Electron is a small cellular IoT board made by Particle. This tiny development kit has everything you need for creating 3G cellular connected products. Includes a prepaid, no contract data plan and instant web access to your Electron with wireless programming.

Kit includes:

  • Microcontroller
  • Particle SIM card with service in more than 100 countries worldwide
  • 3 months of Particle’s 1MB monthly data plan (delivered by email)
  • Antenna x 1
  • 2000mAh battery x 1
  • USB cable x 1
  • Half-size breadboard x 1

The Electron kit also includes Particle’s development tools and cloud platform for managing and updating your new connected hardware.

GSM 900/1800 MHz MHz for use in Europe, Africa, & Asia.

Please note that the Electron is a GSM-only device, and does not support CDMA networks. For a full list of compatible countries, please visit the link here and see “Compatible Countries”.

2G Global and 3G Americas/Aus versions also available.


Next we have the Particle Power Shield with Headers.

3455 iso ORIG

The Particle Power Shield is the best way to—you guessed it—provide power to your mobile Particle projects. Based around the MCP73871 battery management controller, this shield allows you to simultaneously power a Photon and charge a connected Li-Ion or Li-Po battery. You’ll also be able to monitor battery levels using the Photon itself, which makes the Power Shield the best way to untether your wireless project.

Besides the on-board USB port, you can also use an external DC power supply or solar-cell to charge the battery.

This shield ships with a 3.7V, 2000mAh Li-Po battery and headers. Plug & Play – No soldering required!

Designed for use with the Photon, backwards compatible with the Core.


We now also offer three Particle Asset Trackers: 2G (Global), 3G (Americas/Aus), and 3G (Eur/Afr/Asia).

Locate your stuff! The Asset Tracker Kit from Particle contains all of the pieces you need to build a GSM + GPS location tracker for your most prized possessions. In addition to a GPS Shield, the Asset Tracker Kit comes with a weatherproof enclosure, so it’ll keep your electronics safe from the dust, dirt, and moisture of the great outdoors. Keep your bicycle, baby, and backpack safe–satellite lock onto this bargain project kit today!

The Asset Tracker Kit comes with a Particle SIM card with service in more than 100 countries worldwide, and includes 3 months of Particle’s 1MB monthly data plan for IoT devices. All Electrons also include Particle’s development tools, access to a cloud platform with messaging, and a SIM dashboard for managing and updating your new connected hardware.

The Electron is a GSM-only device, and does not support CDMA networks. Some US carriers are planning to sunset their 2G networks beginning in 2017, so the Electron 3G (Americas) is recommended for customers in the US.
