We’ve got battery holders for all sorts of needs and projects! Waterproof? Here ya go. With an on/off switch? Easy peasy. Here’s our latest addition in classy Adafruit black: 4 x AA Battery Holder with Premium Header Wires. What’s so special about ’em? Well you can plug them right into a breadboard! No need to fight with those skinny stripped wires you normally get. Of course, you can always still solder them into a PCB.
4 x AA battery packs can run with ~4.8V (4 x NiMH) to ~6V (4 x Alkaline). Great for powering boards with a ~4.5-6.5V DC input allowance as you’ll see that range depending on how fresh the batteries are.
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.
