The digital multimeter (DMM) is an essential tool in every electronic enthusiasts arsenal. The SparkFun Digital Multimeter, however, is not your average multimeter, it features a loud continuity sound, current/voltage sense, and quality probes. You can use the multimeter to measure DC and AC voltage, DC current, resistance, continuity, and test diodes. With this version we’ve done away with the bright flashy colors that can get us into trouble and gone with a nice, neutral gray. This multimeter should provoke no strong feelings one way or the other, we know this because our guts say “maybe.”
We love heat shrink! We use it for all sorts of handy projects. Use it to reinforce connections, protect devices, and electrically isolate exposed solder joints. We worked with a manufacturer to create a kit that we would use: lots of colors, lots of sizes, nothing too long. We specially requested some of the sizes with heat sensitive glue which significantly increases stress relief and water proofing. This kit includes 95 pieces of heat shrink, all of varying colors and sizes, and comes in a clear bag. All pieces are 10cm in length.
Bag includes the following diameters, 5 pieces of each:
What should every hacker have available to them? That’s right, a screwdriver (you have to get into those cases somehow). What makes screwdrivers even better is when there are a variety of interchangeable bits to use in different situations as you need them. This Pocket Screwdriver Set provides you with just that service in a small, portable package.
Each Pocket Screwdriver Set offers 7 different chrome vanadium bits, four flathead options and three Phillips head options, that fit snuggly in the quick-change magnetic holder at the tip of the screwdriver. The screwdriver’s body is made from a h..
Polymorph is a non-toxic, biodegradable polyester with a low melting temperature of about 60°C (140°F). Prototype plastic parts can be made by simply heating the plastic beads in hot water until they turn clear and then kneading them together and shaping by hand. When it cools it becomes a nylon-like white plastic. Polymorph can be re-used by simply re-heating and re-shaping. Plastic beads are supplied in a heat-sealed plastic bag to prevent spillage during transport.
So what do you do with it? Robotics, small-parts prototyping, arts/crafts, there’s almost no end to what you can do with this..
This is your basic spool of lead free solder with a water soluble resin core. 0.031" gauge and 100 grams. This is a good spool for more advanced users that should last 6-12 months depending on how often you solder.
If you are just beginning to solder, we recommend you order the leaded solder. Lead-free solder is a bit harder to use (does not flow as well).
Mix: 99.3% Sn / 0.7% Cu

This is a right-angle, 24-pin Molex Mini-Fit Jr.™ connector, commonly used as the power supply connector on ATX motherboards. Two rows of twelve pins are broken out two rows of through-hole male headers. See the datasheet below for pin spacing dimensions.
Pair this connector with a standard computer power supply and you can source a number of different voltages (+3.3V, +5V, +12V, -12V, -5V) to your project.[
Do you fear that your power may not be “far reaching” enough? How would another 6' work for you? Okay, so it doesn’t sound very dramatic, but sometimes an extra 6' of power cable is exactly what your project needs. Don’t hack apart a nice clean barrel jack connection just because it won’t reach, this male-to-female barrel jack extension cable will make the reach.
This cable is terminated with 5.5x2.1mm barrel connectors, one male and one female, and fits most of our products that use a DC barrel jack for power (RedBoard, RaspiRobot board, etc.)

Two pin JST connector to a 2.1x 5.5mm barrel jack, 6.25 inch long jumper cable. We use this cable to adapt from a wall power supply to a relatively small, SMD JST connector. We found that many of the SMD connectors used for battery charging were too large or were not capable of through-putting the current we wanted for faster charging. This setup, with a SMD JST connector and wall power supply, can handle up to 2A!..

This is a 0.45kg (1lb) reel of 3mm “clear” Bridge nylon co-polymer filament for 3D printing. Taulman’s “Bridge” high-strength nylon co-polymer bridges the strength of nylon 645 and the ease of printing of ABS/PLA. Items printed in Bridge nylon filament are stronger and more resilient than parts printed in more common materials.
Since Bridge prints cleanly and easily, you can print complex models that are ready to be used. The combination of strength, reduced shrinkage and ease in printing allows you to go from 3D model to 3D printed part ready to be installed. The material comes on a heavy-du..
The Bus Pirate v3.6a, created by Ian Lesnet, is a troubleshooting tool that communicates between a PC and any embedded device over 1-wire, 2-wire, 3-wire, UART, I2C, SPI, and HD44780 LCD protocols - all at voltages from 0-5.5VDC. This product eliminates a ton of early prototyping effort when working with new or unknown chips.
Working with the Bus Pirate is simple and effective - type commands into a terminal on your computer, those commands are interpreted by the Bus Pirate and sent via the proper protocol. The Pirate will also interpret data sent from your embedded device back to your compu..
This is an interface cable for the Bus Pirate, designed to connect to its 2x5 I/O header. The cable’s connector is composed of two rows of five 0.1" spaced pins; it’s also polarized, as is the mating connector on-board the Bus Pirate, so you can only connect the cable in one direction. The leads of the cable are terminated with female ends to mate with test hooks.

While our small diagonal cutters are great for hobby use, sometimes you need something with a little more bite. These electronic snippers are great for cutting wires and component leads. They have a cushioned handle which makes them much more comfortable to use. These snippers can be used are wire cutters if the need be, and are great if you’re looking for something a little better than hobby grade...
These are our new and improved flush cutters, giving you a way to cut leads very cleanly and close to the solder joint. Diagonal cutters are good, but if you really need to get up close and personal, flush cutters are the way to go. They have a nice spring-action and a comfy grip. Plus, the color combination of red and black is fetching, I must say.
