All the best,
Hi Sarah, Unfortunately the length of time the Fizzbit vibrates for is determined by the capacitor which is mounted onto the board, currently there isn’t a version which has a large capacitor on it. From a 30 second charge you should be able to get around 30-40 seconds of run time.
The Fizzbit module is very easy to use, it comes pre-built so no soldering needed. You can then design a vibrating Fizzbit body, there are some examples here http://www.thecraftyrobot.net/. You would then plug it into the USB slot on a PC or laptop and after approximately 20seconds it is fully charged and when unplugged will begin vibrating.
Yes they would be fine, they just use a standard USB port to charge.
Unfortunately we currently don’t have a distributor that takes this item in New Zealand. However you can buy direct off our site and we do ship to New Zealand.
Not easily. The circuit is made of mostly from surface mount components and there's nowhere you can really solder to without likely damaging the components or the USB connection.
It runs for about half a minute from a single charge, a charge takes around 30 seconds.
