Missing a piece in my kit.

by CecilMcDude on Fri Feb 01, 2008 1:40 am

So I just got the kit in the mail today. There is no LED no. 5.
I just opened it up and emptied the contents on my desk, so I couldn't possibly see how I lost it.
Anyway, I want to know: can I build this without that LED?
What function does it serve, anyway?

if you're missing a part you should email support@adafruit
but led5 is just an indicator, its not -essential- and any red or green led will do just fine.

But if I build it without the LED, then the circuit won't be complete and the device won't function, correct?
Just seeing what my options are, because there aren't any stores to buy circuit board components around here, and I'm too impatient to wait for parts to be mailed to me.

No because the led is only an indicator!
Without it the circuit works correctly :)
