It's Thursday, and you know that that means. It's New Product Post day! We just have a few products to talk about this week, but we have some hot stuff in here.
Don't worry, Dave made it inside just fine, eventually. But it really was -15F at the time, he's such a trooper. OK, enough messing around, let's see the short list for this week.
Aside from having the slickest name ever for a heat gun, the SparkFun Heaterizer XL-3000 is one
cool hot product. All of your heat shrink will tremble in fear of the awesome power that is the Heaterizer XL-3000. Use it for heat shrink, melting chocolates, or even minor hot-air rework. For a detailed description, I highly encourage you to read the detailed instructions.
Last week we announced the PowerCell, which combines combines a MCP73831T-based charger and a TPS61200-based boost converter in one board. Well, what if you don't need the charger? Well, then you need the LiPower. The LiPower is a simple boost converter for a LiPo battery based on the TPS61200.
RFID is neat. You can use it for all sorts of things, even marrying your wife! We now have SparkFun branded ID cards. These are the same as our plain RFID cards we had before, but have graphics on the front, and are left blank on the back. We have a good supplier of these and we shouldn't run into stock issues like the last ones. These work with our 125kHz readers.
We have a new revision of the Logomatic V2. This popular data logger gets a new battery charger circuit and a few minor revisions. Other than that, it's the same logger you've come to know and
We also have a new revision of the GPS Shield Retail Kit. This kit comes with the EM-406 GPS module, some headers for an Arduino, and the new revision of the GPS Shield. The new revision of the shield has a space for the now-discontinued SUP500 GPS module. However, the space can be used for holding a GPS module, and you can use the headers as well.
Sadly, that's all the products we have for this week. But, I can promise you that next week will be epic. I'm serious, we have some really cool stuff coming up, so try your best to wait until next week. Thanks for reading.
