Q:
Does it come with the AA power case/cable?
Asked by: Dylan williams
A:
Hi Dylan,

Thank you for your question, this product is just the micro:bit board on its own. If you want the battery cage and cable you would need the product below.

Q:
Can this be used to operate the Kitronik Klaw?
Asked by: Jack Courage
A:
Hi Jack,

Thank you for your question, yes you could but you would need something like a servo driver board to interface between the two.

Q:
hi, do you have any discount for i.e. 10+, 20+, 50+100+ ?
Asked by: Antony Kanouras
A:
Hi Antony, Unfortunately we aren't able to offer any bulk buy discounts on the micro:bit unit itself. However it is possible to make the unit slightly cheaper by buying it in the class pack, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/5616-bbc-microbit-classroom-pack.html you would not only get the micro:bit but also a USB cable, battery cage and batteries so you then have everything needed to get started with the micro:bit.

Q:
How many LEDs can I connect to a microbit?
Asked by: Rob
A:

The max current per pin is 5mA, but with a total maximum for the processor of 15mA.


Nominally a standard LED will take around 10mA so one LED is too much for a processor pin. There are two ways around this, either add a current limit resistor so the LED takes less than 5mA, or add a transistor to each pin so that the current pullled through the pin is tiny, but the current the transistor can drive is a whole lot more.

thanks
Asked by: karl
A:

Hi Karl, The product you are looking at is the BBC micro:bit board only. This doesn’t come with any accessories. If you are looking for a cable to go with the unit you would need to purchase the starter kit, this contains a download cable, compatible battery cage and a set of batteries, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/5615-bbc-microbit-starter-kit.html
