    Powers Arduino UNO

    posted by LynnCochran on 05/13/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Provides 9 volt power to my Arduino UNO, when it's not powering another high-current project of mine. The 5.5/2.1mm "barrel" power plug fits Arduinos, with positive in the center of the connector (if the batteries are installed correctly ;) I ha...
