Curated range of best of breed products.
This battery holder connects 3 AAA batteries together in series for powering all kinds of projects. The box is slim, and 3 AAA's add up to about 3.3-4.5V, a very similar range to Lithium Ion/polymer (Li-Ion) batteries, plus it has a nifty on-off switch.

Silicone-sheathing wire is super-flexible and soft, and its also strong! Able to handle up to 200°C and up to 600V, it will do when PVC covered wire wimps out. We like this wire for being extremely supple and flexible, so it is great for wearables or projects where the wire-harness has to be able to deal with a lot of bending.
Make a nice portable power pack with this 4 x AA battery holder. It fits any alkaline or rechargeable AA batteries in series. There's a snap on cover and an on/off switch which can be handy when wiring to something without a switch.
These two Short Male Headers alone are, well, lonely. But pair them with any of our Feather boards and you're in business!
This electret capsule microphone is the same one Adafruit use in their great microphone amplifier board. It contains a small vibrating element that will output a few milllivolts peak-to-peak.
This conductive fiber is super interesting! It's great for felting and could also be spun into yarn if that's your thing. Adafruit tested many different fiber thicknesses for needle felting and found that this one (20um fiber thickness) is the most pleasurable to work with.

Solenoids are basically electromagnets: they are made of a coil of copper wire with an armature (a slug of metal) in the middle. When the coil is energized, the slug is pulled into the center of the coil. This makes the solenoid able to pull (from one end) or push (from the other).
This incredible speaker does not have a moving cone like most speakers you've seen, instead, a small metal rod is wrapped with the voice coil.
