I have been building electronic kits since the Radio Shack P-Boxes were out. Soldering I have done for a long time. I have not done so in a while and wanted to warm up again on a simple kit tonight.
So I get started after setting up.
I can't see the color codes on these resistors! Sigh. I have been prescribed bi-focals for years and always declined and get the driving glasses. I cheated and ohmed the resistors out.
Here is the finished product. Here is the work on the back side where it matters.
Sigh! I soldered then got a cheap pair of reading glasses to check my work.
So, what does this thing actually do?
Recharge USB devices and is smart enough to be recognized as a supported iThingy charger.
Next up? To put it in the Altoids gum tin!
You want one? Go to adafruit's Website. She is a smart lady that has many really cool kits to be had!
If you don't do this but want one, you buy the stuff and I'll build it for ya!
