“HURRY, FRANK, THERE’S TOO MUCH POWER! We’ll have to cut the circuit before this reactor goes up in smoke!”
This simple but effective product is a solution to all your accidental-tourist-stuck-in-a-nuclear-power-plant-that-just-happens-to-be-right-above-a-now-active-volcano problems! Or just something without an off-switch.
Say you have a nice, elaborate setup for your NeoPixel or DotStar LED strips but no easy way to turn them off? Or maybe an IoT device that you’re not quite positive really turns off when you press the button.
Save energy, avoid accidental data transmission, and prevent the spectre of vampire power (ooh, spooky) with this On/Off Switch with Status Light! Works with any standard AC outlet and is perfect for any devices without a dedicated power on/off.

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.
