3 x AAA Bettery pack or alternative

by Tritch on Tue Mar 27, 2018 11:34 pm

Hi,
I am want to purchase 8 x CP or CPx but I also require them to be powered by a small and inconspicuous source like the 3 x AAA battery pack which is out of stock.

Can you tell me when they will be back in stock or another way of powering the CP - other posts have suggested using the USB port but have not mentioned what the battery pack is or where to get it.

Thanks a bunch!

You can sign up for in-stock notification from the product page for the 3xAAA battery holder.

Beyond that, we don't do ETAs. There are too many sources of delay we can't control, and *way* too many people on the internet who think 'estimated' means 'guaranteed'.

You can also use any 5V power brick to run a Circuit Playground through the USB jack. Those are sold in the checkout aisles in grocery stores these days, so there are lots of different shapes and sizes available at low cost.
