Works with micro:bit V1 & V2. The BBC micro:bit is NOT included in this kit.
The Kitronik Alarm Clock Kit with ZIP Halo HD for microbit provides a fun introduction to features of Halo HD. This kit features a modified version of Halo HD, all of the parts required to build the clock, and also power accessories. To get you started we have included an easy to follow tutorial book which will guide you through building your clock & checking all the LEDs are working correctly with some test code. Once this is done, we can then move online for some further tutorials within MakeCode.
The Kitronik Alarm Clock Kit with ZIP Halo HD for micro:bit features a modified version of Halo HD. This modified version is only available via this kit. The changes are as follows; power is now provided via a 2.1mm barrel jack connection and there is also a coin cell holder fitted to the rear of the board. When a 1220 coin cell battery is inserted, it will then provide power to the RTC chip when no power is being supplied to Halo HD. This ensures that you only have to set up the time for your project once. The maths would suggest that the coin cell can last for up to 2 years in this application, though real-world experiences may vary.
