and more on breadboards
Part of the idea behind this project was to buy items for under a couple of pounds each time and use these to understand how the electrical components work. But one of the major ways to up the cost is to have to buy batteries to power the experiments. The trinket I have been using so far has been powered by the usb programming cable, but if I used one of these boards on a finished project I want a very cheap way to be able to simulate using batteries.
I explained about attaching a header to the trinket by inserting them in a breadboard, but when I was originally searching eBay for the breadboard I found the kit shown above for £2.38 (£3.73 once I added postage from china) This contained a breadboard, a power supply to add to it, and a lot of jumper wires which I could use on the breadboard and would save me having to make them.
