bat:bit battery case for micro:bit

Regular price $15.40

Love your micro:bit but wish you could go mobile but without the the hassle of having a battery case swinging from the top of it? Or would you like to protect your micro:bit and power it while still having access to the edge connector?

Well now through the magic of springy clips and test pads you can!

This case is made up of acrylic layers and PCB which wrap around the micro:bit leaving the edge connector exposed but giving you access to 2 AAA batteries without the need for cables.

But is it hard to put together? Nope! Check out our short video which explains how to do it, just make sure everything is nice and level and secure to ensure the springs of magical power don't touch what they shouldn't.

Included:

  • 1 x front laser cut clear acrylic panel
  • 2 x laser cut clear acrylic panels
  • 1 x bat:bit PCB
  • 4 x M3 dome nuts
  • 4 x M3 machine screws
  • 1 x laser cut acrylic spanner - so no tools required!

 

What's not included:

A micro:bit! We are assuming if you want to power a micro:bit, then you HAVE a micro:bit already. If you don't and would like to buy one, then please add one to your basket here

Batteries, you'll need 2 x AAA

Note: be sure to switch the bat:bit to 'off' when connecting your micro:bit to USB power for programming, as two power sources can overload and damage the micro:bit circuitry.

Had a small issue with device, but received great service from the Small Devices team, so was rectified quickly. The bat:bit is an essential accessory.
