Sept. 2017 Update:
We’ve made Maker Board even better! By adding two fuses to the board, it’s now even less likely that you’ll ‘pop’ an LED in the kit or overpower Maker Board with too many components. This update has also allowed us to remove the fuse from Carrier Board, making a simpler, better kit.
June 2017 Update:
This product now contains Carrier Board 2.0, which has:
– More clear port numbering.
– Snug ports, so components have a more reliable connection.
Includes LED Strip 2.0, which has a connector that makes it easier to plug in and more reliable in your projects.
No longer includes a AA battery pack holder.
