(Suitable for ages 11 years and over)
The Unigeek is a unique badge soldering kit. We looked for a PCB house that was willing and capable of producing a PCB with a number of colours at a reasonable price and we finally found one!
Finished in white and gold with a single rainbow effect colour changing LED this badge looks great.
It’s a simple kit to make and should take around 5-15 minutes to make depending on your soldering ability.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to Australian legislation on coin cell batteries, an alternative battery holder is provided instead of the coin cell holder. DO NOT USE a coin cell battery as they present a hazard for children. For more information see: https://www.productsafety.gov.au/products/electronics-technology/button-batteries
Included in the kit:
- 1 x Unigeek multi-coloured PCB

How to assemble:

- Solder the other pin allowing the solder to wick through the hole of the battery clip.
