Product KIT-10140 |
about 2 years ago
A couple of very inexpensive additions would transform this from a flimsy product to quaity:
1. A socket for the chip. Really? You want your average hobbyist to be soldering a $6 chip in directly, risking damage, when you could supply a socket for 20 cents or less?
2. Spacers, screws, nuts to attach the boards at the corners
3. Perhaps a low-profile socket for the display to allow it to be changed
4. Pins to allow the FTDI to be used
These would cost maybe a dollar more on the cost. I’d pay it to have a more complete kit.
The board ought to be reconfigured to have the two JST connectors have the same pinouts. That’s kind of a sloppy error.
Some simple instructions - at least a photo of what it is supposed to look like when finished, and some hints on using it - would be useful. It’s kind of confusing that you supply a second JST when it’s not obviously needed, yet you don’t supply more essential parts.
No public wish lists :(
