New Supplies From Adafruit

adafruit-logoI got some parts to try out for the Hack-E-Bot the other day. The mos significant mod that I am working on at the moment is the option for a rechargeable Lithium Ion Battery to replace the 4AA batteries.

This will use the PowerBoost 500 Charger, 2200mAh Lithium Ion Cylindrical Battery, and a Pushbutton Toggle Switch for power.

Aside from that, I will be testing out the addition of LEDs to add some color feedback, and a Piezo Buzzer to add some audio “Bleep Bloop”.


NeoPixel Diffused 8mm Through-Hole LED – 5 Pack


Piezo Buzzer


Lithium Ion Cylindrical Battery – 3.7v 2200mAh


PowerBoost 500 Charger – Rechargeable 5V Lipo USB Boost @ 500mA+

So keep an eye out for more cool stuff soon.
