  • The back leg is the center pole.

    The leg in the middle of the connector is tied to the outer barrel.

    The leg on the side is a switch. It is tied to the barrel when there is nothing plugged into the jack and it is open when something is plugged in.

    V+ and GND depend on if the power adapter you're using is center positive or center negative. Sparkfun's adapters are center positive.

  • Thanks to Moore's law, pillaging really doesn't carry the same macho flair it once did.

  • I'd love the Product Tee if only it didn't have the text. There's a line between awesome and overly explicit, and the tagline of "Let your geek shine" nested among all this inherently geek components is on the wrong side of that line.

No public wish lists :(
