Part # AABAT-GM-394
This module is another power option for Gadgeteer users. This module has a USB connector for deploying and debugging applications and uses four AA type batteries to run a Gadgeteer system. The switch can be used to select the power source, either USB or battery. The output voltage is generated though a modern 1A buck-boost regulator. The module allows the use of any AA batteries, from 1.5V lithium batteries to 1.2V rechargeable batteries. The module allows the use of rechargeable batteries (but does not charge them). The raw battery voltage is available on a terminal block (OUTPUT ONLY). This is needed for robotic applications.

Niels @njbuch shared this demo with us, showing how to use electric-imp, a WiFi module sin an SD form-factor, to transfer data to the cloud. This is just to show how the electric imp device can be used as wifi relay for sending sensor data to the cloud. I am currently using Xively, but … read more
How can you enjoy playing with circuits, teach the future engineers and be the best father ever? @harleydk from Denmark has an answer for us! This is what I love about Gadgeteer, being able to whip something up in 3 minutes. Check out the pic, my daughter has this starry sky that she likes to … read more
