  • Pro Mini 3.3V / 8MHz Arduino Compatible Microcontroller
    Fantastic Product
    Review by Ryan
    I use this in everyone one of my creations. Nothing is more powerful or user-friendly than this product. Highly recommended!

  • Lithium Polymer Battery - 3.7V 6000mAh
    Greater than the sum of its parts
    Review by David
    This 6000mAh battery is really three 2000mAh cells joined together. While you might think you could make something similar with duct tape, consider that you might get the wiring wrong and end up with an 11.1V battery that would burn out your circuits and possibly cause bodily harm. Even if you knew what you were doing you wouldn't be saving much money since this battery is so reasonably priced given its capacity..

    Review by John Paul
    Does the trick, leads can be soldered. Sticks quite well to the contacts.

New Ultrasonic Sensor for Hobbyists

Posted on February 24, 2006

By William Cox & filled under RobotShop.

Look out Devantech, there’s a new kid on the proverbial block, the robotics-block, that is. While the ultrasonic sensor line from Devantech has turned into a staple for many hobby robots, it looks like there might be another viable contender. Check out the Ultrasonic Range Finder from Maxbotix, which is listed for $24. A FAQ [...]
