  • Yeah I figured that out. There are actually two 0.1uF caps, so do miss that. I put my new (2nd) danger shield together, shortly after I made this post. I have yet to test it but am hopeful that all aspects/components will work fine.

    Please note that along with the parts list above which appears correct now (THANK YOU) your danger shield tutorial (called the Danger Shield Landing Page) needs updated to reflect the changes in the new Danger Shield version: DEV-11649: https://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/274.

    I still think it'd be a good idea to print the version number on the board itself and update the web site to show the various versions and the differences between them.

    I love this product and your other products as well and THANK YOU for being prompt with your reply to my post!

  • The buzzer is non-polar, so like the buttons, can be mounted without concern for direction: https://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/274.

  • list of resistors above list 14 resistors, 11 x 330 Ohm + 2 x 10K Ohm + 1 x 1M Ohm. The package I bought, the image of the resistors above both have only 13 resistors. Both are missing a 10K Ohm resistor. The board shown has a component near the temp sensor which looks a lot a resistor should go there but it isn't labelled as such on the board, ie. there is a small rectangle with two holes in it, but no "10K" label.

    The LAST danger shield I bought had no 1M Ohm resistor included.

    I look forward to the day I can buy one of these and have 1) all the components listed actually present 2) have either the board or the package list a version number so that I might know which of the (now 4 versions) of this product are listed on this site.

    Maybe someone from SparkFun will read this and reply....

No public wish lists :(
