This kit is the perfect way for beginners to get started with surface mount soldering techniques. The project will require you to hand solder 5 0805 LEDs, 1 0805 capacitor, an SOIC 8 pin IC, an SMD battery clip and a surface mount switch.

Once these are all soldered in place simply adding a CR2032 battery (not included) will bring this pendent to life and start its heartbeat.

The battery should last over a week if left on continuously and much longer if switched off when not in use.

 

Kit contains:

  • 5 x 0805 Red LEDs + spare
  • 1 x 0805 Capacitor + spare
  • 1 x SOIC ATtiny85
  • 1 x PCB
  • 1 x SMD switch
  • 1 x CR2032 SMD battery clip

Needs better instructions.
Saturday, 10 February 2018  |  Anthony

I bought this thinking it would be a quirky giftfor my wife on Valentine's Day. The introductory video makes the construction process look simple and it is. However there are two things to look out for.

Firstly, nothing will prepare you for quite hwo small the parts are if this is your first SMD project. If your eyesight is anything less than perfect you will need some means of magnifying the board and parts while you work on them. I resorted to a lot of camera phone pictures when building mine as I could zoom in on those to inspect the work in progress.

Secondly, the LEDs that shipped with my kit were marked differently from the ones in the instruction video. Instead of a single green line at the cathode there was a green symbol which looked something life this: |- It looked to be in the centre of the part so I couldn't tell which end LED was which.

Response:

Hi, thanks for the review, yes they are super tiny components, we actually picked this size as the 0603 size ones are too small really for a learning kit.
The LEDs are sometimes marked with an arrow or 2 lines but the mean the same thing, the direction the arrow is pointing is the same as the direction the line is pointing.

Great kit for intermediates
Tuesday, 6 February 2018  |  Glyn

A lovely kit for intermediates to have fun with.
I put this kit together with my daughter who is 10. She would have struggled with the surface mount elements on her own, but it gave me a chance to explain some more advanced soldering techniques to her.
When the kit was complete, we were very happy with the results.
