Hello @kite

I bought circuit gem and circuit shield, which battery do you recommend for these projects?
Can you put a link?

Thanks a lot!
The battery should be a 125054, it’s a 4000mAH 3.7v battery.
Just to clarify, that 125054 battery would be for the Gem; it would not fit inside the Circuit Shield.
Per Kite's GitHub Wiki, the Circuit Shield would need a 505080 battery (5mm thick, 50mm wide, 80mm tall) or smaller.

@kite do you announce who the first 10 orders were? Or do we have to wait and find out in like 4 months???

Will any 3.5 inch 640x480 54PIN panel work out or is this one particular? I'd like to save some dosh by not having that premium price is another 54-pin 3.5in lcd will work out.

Hey there -

I have an older Circuit Sword Lite - can I use the 640x480 screen with it?

Thanks!

No sorry, the Circuit Sword Lite lacks the ability to program the LCD to the correct settings (the Circuit Sword uses the built in ATMEGA32u4 to do this)

When ordering the alternative back board for the circuit sword do you still include the original back board with the hdmi connector in the kit as well? I'm still up in the air as to which board I want to install and for an additional £6 I might as well just order both and have a few months to figure it out.

Yep both are included. Same applies for the 640x480 LCD; they are in addition to the base kit.

I’m so happy we get one more chance to order these. I can’t wait to start another build!

Kite, I may be moving in June/July/August timeframe... if my address changes and they haven’t shipped yet, can I contact you directly to update my address? I’m in the military and they have a tendency to move me around periodically. I can’t predict where I’ll be in a given year.

Now I just have to decide what to build!
