Description
 
The Wee Blinky kit is an easy-to-solder two LED blinker circuit. It comes with a 9V battery snap, but will work with almost any voltage from 3V to 12V.  A 9V battery is not included. It's tiny, it blinks, and it's an inexpensive kit to hone your soldering skills.
Features
  • 2 LEDs
  • 4 Resistors

Missing parts January 24, 2013
Reviewer: Jon Thysell from Redmond, WA United States  
Kit came with no instructions or schematics, and took me a while to find it on the designer's site. Here they are:

Kit came with two sets of transistors and no capacitors. One LED was red, the other was just plain dead.

Good thing I tested it all on a breadboard first, and I happened to have enough extra components of my own to finish the project.

Good kit to brush up on my soldering skills, but disappointed in quality control.

Works well March 23, 2012
Reviewer: Badsolderboy from Weldon Spring, MO United States  
Very simple kit, everything you need except the battery, solder, soldering iron, vise and magnifier. Gives a beginner like me a nice confidence boost when it blinks. Unfortunately no one else will be impressed.

Cute little project; works as advertised. December 5, 2009
Reviewer: Stefan Jones from Hillsboro, OR United States  
First off: The instructions for this kit are not included in the little ziplock baggie. You need to download them. Not a problem in this day and age, but I wanted to note it.

There's not much to this one. A little circuit board, a battery holder, a couple of LEDs and some other components. The board is well enough labelled and designed. The instructions were quite clear and instructive.

It took about twenty minutes to get this one together. Works just fine.

This might not be a good first project for kids. The board is rather cramped. Let them learn soldering on something a bit bigger.

I bought a second unit for a project I'm working on. I plan on putting the LEDs on longer wires and sticking them in the eye sockets of a plastic Borg head. You could probably think of similar uses for it.
