NEW PRODUCT – Single CR2032 Battery Holder with Three Flashing Modes

NEW PRODUCT – Single CR2032 Battery Holder with Three Flashing Modes


This tiny coin cell battery holder is ideal for small portable or wearable projects. It holds one 20mm coin cell (CR2032 is the most popular size) to generate 3V nominal. 20mm coin cells are popular as they are used in keychain lights and remotes and other small toys, so they are easy to get and fairly low cost. And speaking of lights, these battery holder includes three “LED” modes: quick flashing, slower flickering, and static on. Press the button to cycle through the modes. Although designed for LED jewelry, it could be used for other projects that need simple cycling.

The holder is made of plastic and snaps open and closed. You can tape it closed if you need more security. A nice extra includes a squishy on/off/mode switch.

Note: This item does not include any CR2032 coin cellsWe do stock those, so why not grab one while you’re here.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

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.
