We’ve expanded our offerings to include tools, equipment and electronics that Limor personally selects, tests and approves before going in to the Adafruit store.
We pride ourselves on having great prices, the best customer service, support and fast shipping. We hope we can assist you on your journey of learning – At Adafruit we celebrate “Engineering Happiness”! Adafruit is a 100% Woman-Owned Small Business.
We personally guarantee our kits and products are more fun than making a blinking LED christmas tree.
