  • This is really great information; everything I was looking for from an unbiased source. Really appreciate it!

  • This is amazing! I feel like I’ve been in the dark by not knowing about these!

  • The interns just didn’t quite understand why “getting high” wasn’t legal before

  • I have 8 loops of EL wire on this, which is 8 positive wires and 8 ground wires. I see on the EL Escudo Dos schematic that all of the EL grounds are tied to the inverter ground. Could I tie all of the EL wire grounds together and run one wire down to the inverter ground? It’d cut the number of wires down from 16 to 9, which would help with my tight space requirements. Thanks in advance for any help!

  • I’m wondering if your math is a bit off here - when drawing the same amount of current, you’re now using 1.7V * I less power than the original 5V * I, which is 34%, not 66% less. Of course you could have just meant to say “consume 66% as much power.”

  • Thanks for this post! I had concerns since it wasn’t explicitly stated in the product description and the El Escudo original had issues with this.

  • Just for reference, this does work with the Sparkfun Mini Photocell. Works great as a laser break-beam sensor (enclosure blocks out external light very well).

  • I’ve been looking to do the same thing - a microSD male to SD female adapter. The only solution I’ve been able to find is to buy this and the Sparkfun SD breakout board and run the wires/headers from the appropriate pins.

    This is actually a better solution to me (except for the cost) because I keep this particular project in a shielded box, and the EyeFi has trouble transmitting through it. Using wires between the two boards allows me to rout the wifi adapter wherever.

    If you already have an SD port, this is probably the cheapest retail WiFi setup for an Arduino (except for adding an Xbee to a Fio or something similar). It’s pretty easy to use too, since the SD library is pretty well made. Even better, I get my Wifi over i2c since my Sd port is on my SmartGPU ( ).

  • The dimensional drawing is excellent for this product. I wish we had that kind of information for all enclosures. Anyway, can anyone check if the long dimension of an Arduino UNO (the 2.7 inch side of the 2.7x2.1" board) fits in between the screw holes on the inside? The dimension is listed as 69mm on the drawing, which is 2.717", but the dimension on the drawing doesn’t go to the correct line. Also, is it possible to fit three Unos in side by side or maybe overlapping a bit? 3x2.1"x25.4mm/in=160mm, whereas the inside is just 152mm, but I’m not sure how accurate those Arduino dimensions are.

    I’m also interested in the dimensions of the label recess.

    Thanks! Appreciate it!
