fabrickit Coin Cell Brick

Replacement:DEV-11258. This coin cell brick has a new revision go check it out! This page is for reference only.

fabrickit is a collection of wearable electronic modules, or “bricks”, that make it easy to construct simple or complex wearable projects. Bricks connect to each other with a flexible, 3-wire conductive fabric ribbon. The fabrickit-bricks-and-ribbon approach streamlines the construction of wearable projects, making them more reliable, attractive and ready-to-wear.

The fabrickit Coin Cell Brick employs a rechargeable coin cell battery to provide 5 volts and up to 50mA of current to your fabrickit project. The battery can be easily recharged without being removed by simply connecting it to any USB port with a micro-USB cable (not included, see below). Use this in conjunction with other fabrickit products, listed below.

Keep in mind that the Coin Cell Brick does not have a power switch. You will want to use the Snap Bricks as power connectors so you can simply 'snap' power on and off.

**Note: **This product is a collaboration with fabrickit. A portion of each sales goes back to them for product support and continued development.
