The Unigeek is a unique badge soldering kit. We looked for a PCB house that was willing and capable of producing a PCB with a number of colours at a reasonable price and we finally found one!

Finished in white and gold with a single rainbow effect colour changing LED this badge looks great.

It’s a simple kit to make and should take around 5-15 minutes to make depending on your soldering ability.

Included in the kit:

  • 1 x Unigeek multi-coloured PCB
  • 1 x Colour changing rainbow LED
  • 1 x CR2032 Battery clip
  • 1 x Badge pin and clip

Required:

  • Soldering iron
  • Solder
  • Pliers
  • CR2032 Battery.

How to assemble:

  1. Check the contents.
  2. Apply a blob of solder to one of the pads for the battery clip.
  3. Seat the battery clip and using pliers hold it down while applying the iron to the pre-tinned pad.
  4. Solder the other pin allowing the solder to wick through the hole of the battery clip.
  5. Go back to the first battery pad and apply more solder for mechanical strength,
  6. Flood solder onto the large gold circle.
  7. Using pliers hold the flat of the pin against the solder and apply heat to solder the pin in place.
  8. Solder the LED in place ensuring the LED is orientated as marked.
  9. Insert battery.
  10. Apply badge to your clothes.
  11. Look cool.

Easy to build but would be perfect with a jumper or switch to save popping the battery out to switch off.

Response:

Hi, Thanks for the review. The reason we didn't include a switch was as this kit is for beginners the addition of a surface mount switch would make the kit a little harder to solder plus even the SMT ones we use in the heART kit require holes to aid with placement and this would overall detracted from the aesthetics of the badge.
Ultimatly it's a case of weighing up the pros and cons on a project by project case.

This is a great little badge if you want to learn soldering! Its easy to solder the battery holder and the LED to the PCB. It shows you which way the components have to be attached to the PCB so you cant go wrong!

Its really eye catching and all of my friends ask me where I got it from!
