We’ve updated the Adafruit MicroLipo and MiniLipo Battery Chargers guide to include the new USB Type C micro-lipo charger! Like the other chargers already in this guide, this board allows you to use USB C to charge your micro-lipo batteries. However, there’s more to this one! We’ve also exposed the data lines so you can use it as a USB-C breakout with your favorite microcontroller. The guide now has a Pinouts page for the new USB Type C charger, and additional material on the Downloads page.
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.
