  • Can anyone at Sparkfun provide a comment regarding the poor range reported by users in this comment stream? I want the device, but not if it only operates at 4 feet apart.

    Is https://www.sparkfun.com/products/153 this same board with essentially a bigger built-in antenna?

  • Is there a backpack/driver module for this so we don't have to individually connect all segments to digital I/O pins? Takes up a lot of pins.

  • What resistor would I need on the LED terminal if the LED is powered by a 3.3v Lilypad on a 40mA Digital Out? (Cross-Posted from https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10467#comment-53d1941c757b7f892f8b4567)

  • What resistor would I need on the LED terminal if the LED is powered by a 3.3v Lilypad on a 40mA Digital Out?

  • Are they flat on the bottom for sitting on a table? The photo seems to indicate there's some threads big on the back that wouldn't make it sit flat?

  • Can this be turned off using the temp knob? Or must it be unplugged to be turned off?
