    The JST close up image is borrowed from the 6 AH model of this battery series, the connector is identical, however as you stated, there’s only 1 cell in this variant.

    Some pins are on the small secondary header, if you’re just using Serial or GPIO, it could work on a standard Arduino board, but if you need the connections that smaller header provides, you would be lacking those signals.

    As I know this adaptor is from the company that makes the PCduino, it would be helpful if they added the ISP header in their next revision, I own a USB Host Shield that needs that header. I know that’s redundant for my specific board though. There are other boards that also use the ISP header that may benefit.

    12768 was in yesterday’s NPP so there we go, thanks.

    I have a warm fuzzy at seeing one of the first displays I learned about in the SFE catalog, I can’t wait to use them.

    I’d probably see if I could stuff it in a small vehicle like a snowmobile or 4 wheeler…

    Alternately, could always use it to make a hydraulic Pick N Place, add a generator and you’d be able to power the electronics for it, the soldering oven, the stencil machine and the disco inspector.

    This thread is why I like shopping at Sparkfun… The folks behind your order, folks.

    “Real Companies” as you define them, would probably not be doing Dumpster Dive, and probably would constantly appear out of stock on even large stock items because the items would not be available.

    Or worse, someone with hostile intent could abuse the system to make sure no items are available.

    No online business does reserved item carts because it can be abused, many don’t show inventory, and just mark the items ‘backorder’ without a timeframe for reorder, or quantity ordered.

    Are the Arduino header pins still limited to 3.3V or did pcDuino make the pins 5V safe in this revision?

    And thus, Bob took his role as manager a bit more seriously than most of Sparkfun’s management.
