Friday Product Post: Don't Blow a Fuse

Our new soldering kit makes protecting your projects easier!

Favorited Favorite 0

Hello everyone, and happy Friday! We have a couple new products this week, starting with a soldering kit that allows you to easily add fuses into your project in multiple different configurations to fit your needs! We also have an adjustable storage case to help with organization, or simply for travel. Let's jump in a take a closer look!

Light the fuse!

SparkFun Fuse Breakout Kit

1 Retired

The SparkFun Fuse Breakout Kit comes with everything you need to assemble and use a glass capsule, inline fuse (ferrule type) for your project. The simple breakout design allows for a barrel jack, and offers the option for a screw terminal to be used for (VIN) power input and a second screw terminal used for VOUT. Any 5mm x 20mm glass capsule fuse can be used with this kit depending on your project needs, but we have been sure to include a 250VAC, 500mA one to get you started. Make sure to add an additional fuse in your cart to replace when prototyping and testing.

Of course, if you are looking for a much more customizable approach, we also offer just the PCB of the SparkFun Fuse Breakout as well. This is a great option for those with specific terminals and resistor preferences.

Adjustable Storage Case

Adjustable Storage Case


This sturdy carrying case is great for carrying anything from tiny components to medium-sized tools. With its adjustable dividers, it could be used to organize the parts on your workbench, or you can take it on the road with you for portable assembly and repair. slaps plastic lid This bad boy can fit so many portable soldering irons!

That's it for this week! As always, we can't wait to see what you make! Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram or Facebook. We’d love to see what projects you’ve made!

    Over the past 50+ years, I've built several boxes that had the same intent as the breakout board. Most of mine also included a switch, and usually binding posts as well. These boxes, though, cost a lot more than your kit!

    • Cool. Do you have any pictures of some of the ones that your build somewhere? I'd like to check it out. =)

  • I love this idea! Suggestion, would you guys be able to do something similar for op-amps, where the resistors/capacitors are left unsoldered? It'd be great to use it as a learning platform for different amps and filters, and then with the ability to daisy-chain them to to make more complex amplifiers.
