Product information "The OwlThief - A Golden Owl with Glowing Orange Eyes (Joul Thief circuit in THT version)"
The gold-black owl with bright orange eyes is a simple soldering kit with the right WOW effect!
A self-wound coil on the back ensures with a few other components that even dead batteries still give the last and two orange LEDs in the eyes of the owl to light up. The circuit is based on the so called Joul-Thief circuit and therefore our owl is named OwlThief.

The eyes of the owl and also the circuit board is a real eye-catcher. The gold plated front is not pierced at any point by a hole for the THT components. The outline of the owl and its wings and feathers are perfectly printed. Instead, the components are soldered onto the back. What is special about the Paltine is that both THT and SMD components work. This is the THT version with the slightly larger and easier to solder THT components. Of course everything is perfectly described in our instructions!

Attention: The batteries are really used to the absolute minimum. Please do not use rechargeable batteries! These will be destroyed.

The battery is inserted into a battery holder at the bottom of the board. This makes the owl stand on its own and watch over you with its Orange LED eyes. A beautiful board perfect for the desk or nightstand. A quick touch to its head and the switch will light it up.


What exactly does a joule thief do?

The name Joule thief is a pun on jewel thief and is meant to illustrate that the circuit squeezes ("steals") the last bit of electrical energy out of a battery that is already useless for other purposes, with the term joule standing for the name of the unit of energy.
The circuit was published in 1999 by Z. Kaparknik published. The circuit was so simple and so elegant that it hit like a bomb. Since then it has been used in many variations in various kits.
The circuit works in such a way that the low voltage still available in the battery is converted to a higher voltage. The self-wound coil on the OwlThief stores the necessary energy periodically magnetically. This energy is used to then induce the higher voltage and the LEDs light up. This happens so often that it looks to your eye as if the LED is permanently lit. We also added a special Z-diode and a capacitor to ensure that the LEDs do not break.


The owl in the media

Our JoulThief owl even made it into the media! The IT news website heise-online reported about our owl:: Kreatives Platinendesign: Mach's ein bisschen hübscher!


Target group

The electronics kit for soldering is designed for beginners. Adults and children alike can have fun with the owl soldering kit, although you should of course not let children solder alone. We wanted to create a little focus on resources with this kit and how much energy is still in many an empty battery. Relatively large components are used, making it easy to learn how to solder. There are 9 components to solder on. This can be done in a reasonable amount of time even by absolute beginners. We also want the kit not to disappear in the drawer after finished soldering and initial playing. That's why we chose an owl soldering kit, which looks really great as a work of art in your own room. Due to the clever arrangement of the battery, the board stands upright by itself. It's best to order a kit or two at the same time, because the owl makes a perfect gift for friends, family, and siblings. Who does not want to have his own light owl? :)

The components in the OwlThief soldering kit

In our kits are always all the components you need for soldering. Unfortunately we can't send the batteries with the kit. We have installed a AA or Mignon battery holder, these are the most common batteries in the household and there should be enough "empty" batteries. The soldering kit includes


The circuit board

The circuit board is the heart of the owl. It forms the outline and the space to solder on all the components. The board is made of fiberglass material which is coated with a gold alloy. On top of that comes a black lacquer layer. Some parts of the board are slightly transparent. This creates the great effects in the eyes of the owl. You will also find two areas on the board: THT and SMD. Only one area has to be soldered on each. Because of the two areas you have the choice if you use SMD or THT parts. To make soldering a little bit easier, we send you THT parts.

The coil

On this solderboard the coil is really the heart. A ferrite core and two about 30cm long wires are wound as described in the instructions and this results in a coil that is exactly suitable for this circuit. At the end the coil has to be soldered to the board with four solder pads. Do not be afraid of this step. We have described everything with high resolution pictures and in the text in the instructions.

Some "chicken" or "owl" food

This time we won't send you any chicken food. Chicken food jokingly refers to all the smaller components. In this kit we have a resistor, a capacitor, a Z-diode and a BC547 transistor. If you want to know more about the components, you can read a bit on Wikipedia. We have linked you to the respective Wikipedia entry. If you have further questions, don't hesitate to send us an email. We are happy to help!

Orange LEDs

Two orange LEDs on the back provide the magic eyes of the owl. The circuit sucks the last energy from the batteries and pushes the electrons towards the LEDs. Through the slightly transparent circuit board, the LEDs shine through to the front and make the owl's eyes glow.

The AA battery holder

The battery holder for AA or Mignon batteries is included in the kit and is placed on the bottom edge of the board so that the center of gravity is at the feet of the owl. This way the owl stands on its own and does not need an extra stand or to lean against. By the way, there are also adapters from AAA or micro batteries to the battery holder used here.

A switch

Of course, there is also a switch included! The switch is easy to use and therefore ideal for children (and adult hands). The switch locks in place and stays in the position (on or off) you want the switch to be in. A great noticeable "click" provides tactile and audible comfort.

Required tools

How the minimal soldering workstation looks like we describe you here: Der Lötarbeitsplatz
In addition, a pair of tweezers is especially helpful for this kit :)
 

Instructions and help

To make it easy for you to solder the kit, we have built a detailed instruction with many pictures and single steps for each of our kits. There you will be guided step by step through the assembly and there are many tips and tricks on how to solder correctly. For most of our soldering kits there are also interactive circuits with names of the components and the traces. All instructions are available in German and English.

For environmental reasons we do not print our instructions. In fact, it is better to view them on screen, as you can then zoom into the high-resolution photos to see details. On each kit you will find a QR code or link to the instructions.

All instructions can be found as PDF at the following link: https://binary-kitchen.github.io/SolderingTutorial
Just click on "DE" or "EN" at the right kit and you can download a PDF.

Lovingly packed for you by hand

Ein besonderer Dieb

Nach dem Prinzip eines Joule Thief aufgebaute Platine in Form einer Eule. Sie kann bereits aufgebrauchte AA Batterien noch verwenden und verbraucht fast die gesamte Restenergie, daher der Name. Die Eule ist etwa 9 cm hoch und etwa 6cm breit. Die Eule wird übersandt in einer braunen Papiertasche. Aber jetzt aufgepasst. Bitte die Einzelteile entsprechend der Liste überprüfen. Es gibt da nämlich ein kleines braunes Teilchen, so groß wie eine Linse, mit zwei Füßchen, das sich evtl. so wie bei mir in einer braunen Papierfalte versteckt. Das Zusammenlöten macht echt Spass und gelang sehr gut, wenn man sich an die Anweisungen hält. Das vorgeschlagene Lötzinn funktioniert ganz gut. Beim Wickeln der Spule darf man das Markieren der beiden Drähte einer Seite nicht vergessen. Etwas verzwickt ist das Biegen der Füße der LED aber mit einer Spitzzange und etwas Ruhe gelang das sehr gut. Der im Shop gekaufte Lötkolben ist eine tolles Gerät und zu empfehlen, wenn man einen neuen sucht. Etwas hochpreisig, kann aber mit noch teureren Lötkolbenstationen locker mithalten. Und tata die Eule leuchtet. Guter Bausatz für Anfänger mit Lerneffekt.

Und wieder was gelernt!

* Top: Alte Batterien werden einfach "zu Ende" benutzt. Ich habe es mit einer "leeren" Batterie ausprobiert - mega! * Anders als bei anderen Bausätzen wird hier ausschließlich auf Lötpads aufgelötet, kein THT. * Ich hatte vorher noch nie eine Spule gewickelt. Klasse! * Die Eule sieht super aus mit den glühenden Augen. * Tolle Anleitung - sehr verständlich.

größer als erwartet

Die Eule ist beim Auspacken größer als erwartet. Die Positionierung der Bauteile geht fix, am längsten dauert das Wickeln der Spule. Mir gefällt der Ansatz gebrauchte Batterien hiermit komplett zu entladen, hier wäre es schön noch 1-2 andere Bausätze zur Auswahl zu haben.

The board is made of fiberglass material which is coated with a gold alloy. A white coating of varnish is applied on top of it. Some parts of the board are slightly transparent. This creates the great effects on the exhaust jet and the porthole.RGB LEDsThis is where the magic happens! RGB stands for red-green-blue and describes the different colours of the LED. It looks like one LED, but there are 3 tiny little LEDs that slowly change through an integrated circuit. This gives you all the colours of the rainbow. Look closely, the black dot you find in the LED is the entire circuit! Yes really, so tiny! Just connect 3V and the LED lights up in all colours. There are four RGB LEDs in the Rocket soldering kit.The SMD battery holderThe battery holder for CR2032 batteries is included in the kit in an SMD version. It is soldered onto the surface like the other components. How to do this is described in the soldering instructions. We made sure that the SMD battery holder is very easy to solder on. The battery itself is then simply plugged in. The battery lasts for 4-8 hours of continuous operation. So you should switch off your rocket to save some power. You can get more in any well-stocked supermarket, in hardware stores and Swedish furniture stores.A switchOf course, a switch is also included! The switch is easy to operate and therefore ideal for children (and adult hands). The switch locks and stays in the position (on or off) you want the switch to be in. A great perceptible "click" provides haptic and acoustic comfort.Needed toolsHow the minimal soldering workplace looks like is described here: The soldering workplace To make the MINT-Labs rocket glow, you need to get one CR2032 battery per rocket at the hardware store or a big supermarket/shop.

Heart THT - A special heart with a very special chip
Hearts are always good! And this heart is a homage to a very special chip: the NE555, 50 years old and one of the most widely used chips in the world... Still is!From mobile phones to blinker kits to satellites, this beautiful chip is used everywhere! In this THT heart kit, the chip sits appropriately in the middle on the circuit board and drives the pulse of the heart. The heart itself consists of many red 3mm THT LEDs with a so-called tracking circuit. Two LEDs light up at the same time and follow each other... whether they will ever reach each other? In addition, a switch on the back can be flipped to make the heart glow permanently. Of course, in the chaser version you can set the speed of the chase yourself with a potentiometer. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)The best thing is: With this soldering kit, even beginners can easily solder a heart for themselves or as a gift. There are a few through-hole components to solder, and it looks like a lot of solder joints at first, but the kit is still relatively easy to solder if you follow our good illustrated instructions. You just have to follow a certain order, then soldering is no problem at all!Target groupThe electronic soldering kit is designed for beginners. Adults and children alike can have fun with the THT Heart soldering kit, although you should not let children solder alone. Relatively large components are used, which make it easy to learn how to solder. This is also possible for absolute beginners in a reasonable amount of time. And the shape? Of course, you must have soldered a heart for yourself or your loved ones at some point in your life. It's best to order one or two at the same time, because as you can imagine, the heart is a popular gift for friends, partners or children.The components in the NE555 heart soldering kitOur kits always contain all the components you need for soldering. Unfortunately we cannot send you the batteries. However, you can get them from DIY stores and larger supermarkets (more on this below under "Tools and accessories"). The soldering kit includesThe circuit boardsThe circuit boards are the heart of the kit. They form the outline and the space to solder all the components. The circuit board is made of fibreglass material which is coated with a gold alloy. A multi-coloured lacquer layer is applied on top.The NE555On the board there is one smaller and two larger chips. The smaller chip is an NE555 that acts as a bistable flip-flop to provide the necessary clock. The two CD4017s (the larger chips) then dutifully count through all the LEDs and ensure that they light up.The LEDs and the other chicken foodOn the front side, many red 3mm THT LEDs are put through the board and soldered on. Even when switched off, this gives you a wonderful heart. But as soon as the circuit is powered up and switched on, everyone's eyes get big! Apart from that, there are some switches, slide switches and some chicken feed, i.e. other components.The battery holderWhat would a circuit be without power. Power is provided by a CR2032 battery that is securely fastened in a battery holder. The circuit itself and also the LEDs need relatively little power, so you can run the heart for a very long time with one CR2032.One push switch and several slide switchesOf course, there are also a couple of switches included! The push switch is easy to operate and therefore ideal for children (and adult hands). The switch locks in place and stays in the position (on or off) you want the switch to be in. A great perceptible "click" provides haptic and acoustic comfort. A slide switch sort for continuous lighting or chase LED.Tools neededHow the minimal soldering workstation looks like is described here: Der LötarbeitsplatzTo light up the NE555 heart, you will need to get some batteries from a DIY store or a large supermarket/shop.Also, an electric side cutter is very helpful for this kit :) Instructions and helpTo make it easy for you to solder the kit, we have put together detailed instructions with lots of pictures and individual steps for each of our kits.

The manufacturing is of very high quality. The easily exchangeable tips also make the mini soldering iron flexible to use. However, the price clearly makes it the first soldering iron for a beginner. The Pinecil will definitely be a long-lasting companion for life. The scope of delivery The scope of delivery of the Pinecil v2 is limited to the most important things you need. Of course, the soldering iron itself is included. The latest firmware is already flashed on the Pinecil. There is also a short, pointed soldering tip. The short tip gets hot particularly quickly! A power supply unit or USB cable is not included. Take a look at the accessories in our shop. You need at least a power supply and a cable. Compatible power supplies The hollow plug socket is not protected against polarity reversal! You must make sure that you use a compatible power supply unit. You can find a list from the manufacturer here: https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/Pinecil_Power_Supplies We recommend only USB-C power supplies with 65W and 20V. (Attention: Many power supplies do not have a real 65W on one port and distribute the power e.g. to two sockets). The original power supply from Pinecil is excellent. Also the power station. Recommended cables It should definitely be a USB-C to USB-C cable. Since it is a soldering iron, a silicone cable is also extremely practical. Silicone cables are heat-resistant and will not break if accidentally touched. Check out our accessories, we have suitable USB cables in stock! Other accessouries There are several other accessories for the Pinecil v2: Mini stand Although you can simply place the Pinecil on its soldering pad, because the tip does not overlap at the front, a small stand with a sponge or metal wool is practical for cleaning the tip. Other tips There are many other tip sizes. From tiny pencil tips to wide wedge tips, all tips can be used. By the way: The Pinecil v1 soldering tips are compatible with the Pinecil v2. Open Source and Community The Pinecil is a community project. This means that many developers have worked together to perfect the piece of hardware and the software. The community has made sure that the components are open source. This means that there is no trade secret about how the soldering irons are constructed. You can simply download the instructions and circuit diagrams from the internet. This has the advantage that a possible repair is also made much easier, since it is clear which components have been used. The community also ensures that the soldering iron corresponds exactly to the wishes and needs of the solderers. A really great piece of hardware. The PINECIL's software is also open source, so it is easy to make adjustments. It is quite easy to create your own temperature curves or programme a specific response. Built-in motion sensors allow the soldering iron to quickly switch between stand-by mode and operating temperature. Differences between v1 and v2 The new version v2 brings a number of new features. Among the most important are: Bluetooth: It is now possible, for example, for a fan control to switch on automatically when the iron is in use. A shorter tip: This makes the soldering iron even easier to hold and it gets hot even faster. Improved power supply: The power supply has been improved and stabilised.

Daisy RGB - Show everyone your favourite flower in rainbow colours
With this great 3D kit you can solder your very own daisy. The best thing about it: There is a super large RGB LED in the middle of the flower. Unlike our unicorns and rockets, you can set the colour yourself. The intensity of the colours red, blue and green can be adjusted with three large variable resistors, so-called potentiometers. Depending on the mixture, you can create your own personal favourite colour.Another potentiometer on the back can be used to adjust the overall brightness. In addition, you can switch off the individual colours to 100% via slide switches and, for example, mix only two colours.Another potentiometer on the back can be used to adjust the overall brightness.

The youth hack Al Hacka Alpaka - Cooler than reality allows!
The youth hack alpaca Al Hacka is cooler than reality allows! From behind, the eyes are illuminated in all the colours of the rainbow. To make it even cooler, it comes with a pair of sleek black sunglasses.The best thing is: With this soldering kit you can easily make a great pin, pendant or necklace even as a beginner. You only have to solder 4 components on the back. For those who already know a bit about soldering: The LEDs are THT, i.e. through-hole components. They are soldered to the surface on the back. We used this trick to avoid having holes on the front. This way the alpaca can shine in all its glory and without any blemishes.For all those who are not yet ready: never mind! Detailed and well-tested instructions will guide you through this little soldering adventure.You can find a video of the rainbow colours here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8JFJ-eYq9o(The video is of our unicorn, but it will give you an idea of how great the Al Hacka alpaca glows).Target groupThe electronic soldering kit is designed for beginners. Adults and children alike can have fun with the Alpaka soldering kit, although of course you should not let children solder alone. Relatively large components are used, which make it easy to learn how to solder. Only 4 components need to be soldered on. This is also possible for absolute beginners in a reasonable amount of time. And the shape? Who can resist the coolness of Al Hacka the Soldering Paka? :) It's best to order one or two of the other items as well, because as you can imagine, the alpaca soldering kit is a popular gift for friends, partners or children.The components in the Jugendhackt soldering kitOur kits always contain all the components you need for soldering. Unfortunately, we cannot send you the batteries. However, you can get them from DIY stores and larger supermarkets (more on this below under "Tools and accessories"). The soldering kit includes:The circuit boardThe circuit board is the heart of the alpaca. It forms the outline and the space to solder all the components. The board is made of fibreglass material which is coated with a gold alloy. A layer of white lacquer is applied on top. Some parts of the board are slightly transparent. This creates the great effects of the eyes! The icing on the cake: The sunglasses made of black PCB. The perfect addition for Al Hacka.RGB LEDsThis is where the magic happens! RGB stands for red-green-blue and describes the different colours of the LED. It looks like an LED, but it is 3 tiny little LEDs that slowly alternate through an integrated circuit. This gives you all the colours of the rainbow. Look closely, the black dot you find in the LED is the entire circuit! Yes really, so tiny! Just connect 3V and the LED lights up in all colours. There are two RGB LEDs in the Alpaka soldering kit.The SMD battery holderThe battery holder for CR2032 batteries is included in the kit in an SMD construction. It is soldered onto the surface like the other components. How to do this is described in the soldering instructions. The battery itself is then simply plugged in. The battery lasts for 4-8 hours of continuous operation. So you should switch off your alpaca to save some power. You can get a new one in any well-stocked supermarket, in do-it-yourself stores and Swedish furniture stores.A switchOf course, a switch is also included! The switch is easy to operate and therefore ideal for children (and adult hands). The switch locks and stays in the position (on or off) you want the switch to be in. A great perceptible "click" provides haptic and acoustic comfort.Required toolsHere we describe what the minimum soldering workstation looks like: Der LötarbeitsplatzIn order to light up the Alpaka soldering kit, you need to buy one CR2032 battery per Alpaka at a DIY store or a large supermarket/Swedish furniture store.Also, tweezers are especially helpful for this kit :) Instructions and helpTo make it easy for you to solder the kit, we have put together detailed instructions with lots of pictures and individual steps for each of our kits.

Ebyte Funkmodul CMT2300A 868/915MHz Breakoutboard
E49-900M20S is a low-cost wireless data transmission module introduced to the market by Chengdu Ebyte. It is a hardware-only module based on the CMT2300A. The E49-900M20S supports a maximum transmit power of 20dBm, but the user can also set a lower output power to save power. The module operates in the 850MHz ~ 930MHz frequency band, including the widely used 868MHz and 915MHz frequencies.This module comes with a breakout board and is pin compatible with OpenDTU's NRF modules. Es ist natürlich auch die passende Antenne dabei. Achtung: Dies ist nur das Funkmodul und für die Bastler gedacht. The radio module breakout board is not enough to build an OpenDTU! You need the complete kit or additional components.Pre-soldered CMT module (optional)We have heard your feedback and understood that SMD soldering is probably not for everyone. Therefore, we have decided to offer the module pre-soldered. Only the CMT module (the silver chip) is soldered on. The pin header and antenna module are much easier to solder and still need to be soldered by you. We actually solder them by hand, so unfortunately we have to charge a little more to justify the extra effort. We hope for your understanding here.Compatibility This radio module is fully compatible with openDTU and ahoyDTU. Unfortunately, we cannot provide support for ahoyDTU. You can find help here at ahoydtu.de .

The manufacturing is of very high quality. The easily exchangeable tips also make the mini soldering iron flexible to use. However, the price clearly makes it the first soldering iron for a beginner. The Pinecil will definitely be a long-lasting companion for life. The scope of delivery The scope of delivery of the Pinecil v2 is limited to the most important things you need. Of course, the soldering iron itself is included. The latest firmware is already flashed on the Pinecil. There is also a short, pointed soldering tip. The short tip gets hot particularly quickly! A power supply unit or USB cable is not included. Take a look at the accessories in our shop. You need at least a power supply and a cable. Compatible power supplies The hollow plug socket is not protected against polarity reversal! You must make sure that you use a compatible power supply unit. You can find a list from the manufacturer here: https://wiki.pine64.org/wiki/Pinecil_Power_Supplies We recommend only USB-C power supplies with 65W and 20V. (Attention: Many power supplies do not have a real 65W on one port and distribute the power e.g. to two sockets). The original power supply from Pinecil is excellent. Also the power station. Recommended cables It should definitely be a USB-C to USB-C cable. Since it is a soldering iron, a silicone cable is also extremely practical. Silicone cables are heat-resistant and will not break if accidentally touched. Check out our accessories, we have suitable USB cables in stock! Other accessouries There are several other accessories for the Pinecil v2: Mini stand Although you can simply place the Pinecil on its soldering pad, because the tip does not overlap at the front, a small stand with a sponge or metal wool is practical for cleaning the tip. Other tips There are many other tip sizes. From tiny pencil tips to wide wedge tips, all tips can be used. By the way: The Pinecil v1 soldering tips are compatible with the Pinecil v2. Open Source and Community The Pinecil is a community project. This means that many developers have worked together to perfect the piece of hardware and the software. The community has made sure that the components are open source. This means that there is no trade secret about how the soldering irons are constructed. You can simply download the instructions and circuit diagrams from the internet. This has the advantage that a possible repair is also made much easier, since it is clear which components have been used. The community also ensures that the soldering iron corresponds exactly to the wishes and needs of the solderers. A really great piece of hardware. The PINECIL's software is also open source, so it is easy to make adjustments. It is quite easy to create your own temperature curves or programme a specific response. Built-in motion sensors allow the soldering iron to quickly switch between stand-by mode and operating temperature. Differences between v1 and v2 The new version v2 brings a number of new features. Among the most important are: Bluetooth: It is now possible, for example, for a fan control to switch on automatically when the iron is in use. A shorter tip: This makes the soldering iron even easier to hold and it gets hot even faster. Improved power supply: The power supply has been improved and stabilised.

This is enough for many circuits and if you are in doubt you can simply get more wire jumpers. The advantage of the pre-bent and prepared lengths is the overview on the breadboards . Especially for beginners, it is difficult to follow a circuit correctly if you first have to fight your way through a tangle of wires. This is difficult even for professionals.The cable set for breadboards contains (in brackets are the lengths of the holes/steps on a standard breadboard that can connect these cables): 10x 2mm (2 steps) 10x 5mm (3 steps) 10x 7mm (4 steps) 10x 10mm (5 steps) 10x 12mm (6 steps) 10x 15mm (7 steps) 10x 17mm (8 steps) 10x 20mm (9 steps) 10x 22mm (10 steps) 10x 25mm (11 steps) 10x 50mm (21 steps) 10x 75mm (30 steps) 10x 100mm (41 steps) 10x 125mm (50 Steps) The 140 wires come in a handy little box.Show us your circuitWe at blinkyparts are super excited to hear what circuits you tinker with.

Rainbow Unicorn - Simple kit for a fantastic badge
The great rainbow unicorn is something very special. Once soldered, the tail, horn and mane shine almost magically in all the colours of the rainbow. The best thing is: with this soldering kit you can easily make a great pin, pendant or necklace even as a beginner. You only have to solder 6 components on the back. For those who already know a bit about soldering: The LEDs are THT, i.e. through-hole components. They are soldered to the surface on the back. We used this trick to avoid having holes on the front. This way, the unicorn can shine in all its glory and shine without any flaws.For all those who are not yet that far: don't worry! Detailed and well-tested instructions will guide you through this little soldering adventure.A video of the rainbow colours can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8JFJ-eYq9oTarget groupThe electronic soldering kit is designed for beginners. Adults and children alike can have fun with the unicorn soldering kit, although of course you should not let children solder alone. Relatively large components are used, which make it easy to learn how to solder. Only 6 components need to be soldered. This is also possible for absolute beginners in a reasonable amount of time. And the shape? Who isn't a unicorn fan, please? :) It's best to order one or two of these soldering kits, because as you can imagine, the unicorn soldering kit is a popular gift for friends, partners or children.The components in the unicorn soldering kitOur kits always contain all the components you need for soldering. Unfortunately, we cannot send you the batteries. However, you can get them from hardware stores and larger supermarkets (more on this below under "Tools and accessories"). The soldering kit includes:The circuit boardThe circuit board is the heart of the unicorn. It forms the outline and the place to solder all the components. The board is made of fiberglass material which is coated with a gold alloy. A white coating of varnish is applied on top of it. Some parts of the board are slightly transparent. This creates the great effects on the tail and horn! RGB LEDsThis is where the magic happens! RGB stands for red-green-blue and describes the different colours of the LED. It looks like one LED, but there are 3 tiny little LEDs that slowly change through an integrated circuit. This gives you all the colours of the rainbow. Look closely, the black dot you find in the LED is the entire circuit! Yes really, so tiny! Just connect 3V and the LED lights up in all colours. There are four RGB LEDs in the Unicorn soldering kit.The SMD battery holderThe battery holder for CR2032 batteries is included in the kit in an SMD version. It is soldered onto the surface like the other components. How to do this is described in the soldering instructions. The battery itself is then simply plugged in. The battery lasts for 4-8 hours of continuous operation. So you should switch off your unicorn to save some power. You can get more in any well-stocked supermarket, in hardware stores and Swedish furniture stores.A switchOf course, a switch is also included! The switch is easy to operate and therefore ideal for children (and adult hands). The switch locks and stays in the position (on or off) you want the switch to be in. A great perceptible "click" provides haptic and acoustic comfort.Needed toolsHow the minimal soldering workplace looks like is described here: The soldering workplace To make the unicorn glow, you need to get one CR2032 battery per unicorn at the hardware store or a big supermarket/shop. Also, a pair of tweezers is very helpful for this kit :) Instructions and helpTo make it easy for you to solder the kit, we have put together detailed instructions with lots of pictures and individual steps for each of our kits. There you will be guided step by step through the assembly and there are many tips and tricks on how to solder correctly. For the majority of our soldering kits there are also interactive circuits with the names of the components and the tracks. All instructions are available in German and English. For environmental reasons we do not print our instructions. In fact, it is better to view them on screen, as you can then zoom into the high-resolution photos to see details. On each kit you will find a QR code or link to the instructions.You can find all the instructions as PDF files at the following link: https://binary-kitchen.github.io/SolderingTutorialJust click on "DE" or "EN" for the relevant kit and you can download a PDF.CaseGot a 3D printer at home?

OpenDTU CMT - Your evaluation for your balcony solar system compatible to Hoymiles HMS and HMT series (CMT module)
The energy turnaround is in full swing and great balcony power plants are sprouting up on every balcony. It's beautiful!With this OpenDTU Board kit you can read out your balcony solar power plant, display the data and even control it. The prerequisite is an inverter from Hoymiles. A small display always shows the current power production.The project was started by Thomas and Jan and can of course be found under open source licence here:https://github.com/tbnobody/OpenDTU (there you will also find a list of compatible inverters).This breakout board is 100% compatible and was created together with the developers of the software. On the board there is a special radio module that speaks the radio standard of the inverters. This is read out by an ESP32 module, processed and can be further processed via WLAN, e.g. with MQTT.The board also has connections for a display and an RGB LED strip, which may be supported in a future version.Pre-soldered CMT module (optional)We have heard your feedback and understood that SMD soldering is probably not for everyone. Therefore, we have decided to offer the module pre-soldered. Only the CMT module (the silver chip) is soldered on. The pin header and antenna module are much easier to solder and still need to be soldered by you.We actually solder them by hand, so unfortunately we have to charge a little more to justify the extra effort. We hope for your understanding here.Scope of Delivery In the scope of delivery, you will receive all the necessary components: a display, an ESP32, and an antenna module. You just need to solder them together and enter your Hoymiles serial number, and you're ready to go! The ESP32 is already pre-flashed.CompatibilityThis kit uses the CMT2300A module and is compatible with the following Hoymiles models: Hoymiles HMS-300-1T Hoymiles HMS-350-1T Hoymiles HMS-400-1T Hoymiles HMS-450-1T Hoymiles HMS-500-1T Hoymiles HMS-600-2T Hoymiles HMS-700-2T Hoymiles HMS-800-2T Hoymiles HMS-900-2T Hoymiles HMS-1000-2T Hoymiles HMS-1600-4T Hoymiles HMS-1800-4T Hoymiles HMS-2000-4THoymiles HMT-1600-4T Hoymiles HMT-1800-4THoymiles HMT-2000-4T Hoymiles HMT-1800-6THoymiles HMT-2250-6T If you are looking for a module with NRF24L01+ for the HM series from Hoymiles you need this kit: https://shop.blinkyparts.com/en/OpenDTU-Your-evaluation-for-your-balcony-solar-system-compatible-with-Hoymiles-HM-series-NRF-module/blink237542FeaturesRead out live data from the inverter Display the inverter's internal event log Display inverter information such as firmware version, firmware build date, hardware revision and hardware version View and set the current inverter threshold Power off/on function of the inverter Uses ESP32 microcontroller and CMT2300A multi-inverter support MQTT support (with TLS) Home Assistant MQTT Auto Discovery support Beautiful and fancy WebApp with visualisation of current data Firmware upgrade via the Web UI Standard source supports up to 10 inverters Time zone support Prometheus API endpoint (/api/prometheus/metrics) English, German and French web interface Direct connection of displays (SSD1306, SH1106, PCD8544) Dark theme in the web interfaceThe HousingThe kit comes with a high-quality 3D printed housing.
