Arduino starter packs in stock!

Startpack70S
Heard about Arduino but not sure how to start? Arduino starter packs in stock!

Want to learn how to work with electronics and microcontrollers but need a little help? You’ve come to the right place! This bundle is designed to get you started quickly and easily on your path of learning electronics. Once you’ve received your starter pack you can follow the introductory tutorials here on our site, designed for everyone, even people with little or no electronics and programming experience. The starter pack has everything you need (except tools) for all lessons.

It includes:

  • Arduino Duemilanove w/Atmega328 – The latest and greatest Arduino revision, assembled and ready to go, including 4 rubber feet
  • 3′ USB cable – Perfect for connecting your Arduino to a computer
  • Protoshield Kit - One of my designs, its got everything you need to make prototype designs using an Arduino. Note that this comes unassembled by default
  • Tiny Breadboard – Fits on top of the protoshield, easy to use
  • 9V DC regulated wall adapter – You can power your Arduino from any wall socket. This switching regulator is efficient and small and works with US (110V) and European (220V) power.
  • 9V Battery case with switch and a 2.1mm plug- so you can power your arduino using a 9V battery. This case is much sturdier than just a battery clip and it has an on/off switch too! Note that this comes unassembled by default.
  • We’re out of stock of cases, so instead we’re shipping with 9V battery clip with 2.1mm plug
  • Tutorial starter pack parts – Includes a 10K potentiometer, 1K potentiometer, 2 small pushbuttons, 5 red diffused bright LEDs, one each of red, green and blue ultra-bright LED, 5 100 ohm resistors, 5 1K resistors, 5 10K resistors, and a CdS photocell sensor.
  • Also includes 75 flexible breadboard wires in 8 colors, perfect for use with the solderless breadboard.
  • In the Adafruit store!

  1. On the next revision of this kit, I would suggest that you look into including an rgb led or two and the appropriate resistors for it. I have found that the rgb led is rather simple to play with via pwm and one of the funnest and most versatile outputs for the arduino. A serial lcd would be great, but that is significantly more costly. Thanks for the great kits; I am eagerly awaiting a package from adafruit tomorrow!

  2. Thats hilarious brett, I just bought a kit with an RGB diode yesterday…

    I fully agree that RGB leds are fun, however, you have to draw the line somewhere. She has already included seperate red, green and blue LEDs with the kit, and thats enough to play with pwm. Yes, RGB LEDS look cooler, but you have to wonder if its really nessessary.

  3. ya i actually like including separate R G and B LEDs because they’re hella brighter and you can see each diode while you learn about color mixing!
