NEW GUIDE: Adafruit LiIon or LiPoly Charger BFF Add-On for QT Py #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @adafruit
Take your QT Py anywhere with this power BFF!
Is your QT Py all alone, lacking a friend to travel the wide world with? When you were a kid you may have learned about the “buddy” system. Well, this product is kinda like that! A board that will watch your QT Py’s back and give it the power and support to wander out past your USB port. This little lipo charger is designed to fit onto the back of any QT Py board, and make it easy for portable powering. Simply plug any standard 3.7V/4.2V lithium polymer or lithium-ion rechargeable battery into the JST plug on the end.
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.
