  • The best thing about Sparkfun Edison blocks is they make Edison portable. The compute module Intel Edison is slightly larger than a SD card. After playing around Edison extensively I am completely in love with this tiny computer. The specialty of Edison is – It can be used for wearables also it is enough powerful to control robots. I love the Sparkfun Battery Block as they make my Edison wireless. With this I can use my Edison as a wearable or can make it heart of my Robot. The Battery pack is also capable enough to fly a Edison drone for few minutes. Edison has onboard WiFi and Bluetooth but to make it completely wireless one should use this small Battery Block. The Battery Block is likely the simplest way to power an Edison and we can charge it with the USB connector provided in the block. So simple to use and power up my projects.This is something I always want to use in my projects. Edison is the smallest computer and the small Battery block from Sparkfun is its true companion.

No public wish lists :(
