This is a retired product, but fear not as there is a newer, better version available: DEV-11259

Replacement: DEV-11259. The new version of this board is based on the NCP1402 as opposed to the NCP1400. This shouldn't change the way it acts but it will be able to source more current.This page is for reference only.
Description: A small, but mighty power supply. This board was designed to be as small and inconspicuous as possible. Pop in a AAA battery, flip the power switch, and you will have a 5V supply to power your LilyPad network. Good up to 100mA. Short circuit protected.
This board has AAA battery clips but can use an input from 1.2V to 5V. Our lithium polymer batteries are a good, rechargable alternative.
LilyPad is a wearable e-textile technology developed by Leah Buechley and cooperatively designed by Leah and SparkFun. Each LilyPad was creatively designed to have large connecting pads to allow them to be sewn into clothing. Various input, output, power, and sensor boards are available. They're even washable - but be sure to remove the battery!
Note: A portion of this sale is given back to Dr. Leah Buechley for continued development and education of e-textiles.
