Here’s the link to the of the document over at. EarthShine. Support their efforts by supporting them too! Arduino · Starter Kit Manual · EarthShine Electronics. The first kit is the Arduino starter kit from Earth Shine Electronics which consists of many electronic parts like a piezo sounder, leds, diodes. Then I started Earthshine Electronics to sell kits based on the Arduino. To go with the kit, I produced a small tutorial booklet to get people started. This little.

For a long time I would like to experiment with electronics. One of the available platforms is the Arduino platform. Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. But how to get started with Arduino?
I thought the best way to try the Arduino platform was to buy one of the available Arduino starters kits. There are several kits available and I tried to compare them with rlectronics other.
Added two Arduino kits Update Added another Arduino kit Update Added another Arduino kit. The first kit is the Arduino starter kit from Earth Shine Electronics which consists of many electronic parts like a piezo sounder, leds, diodes, buttons, potentiometer, breadboard etc.
Thy also offer Arduino code and a getting started guide for free. You can download this guide from their website. Another kit is the Fritzing Starter Kit which offers lots of components to get started with Arduino hacking.
This kit cost 46,15 EUR without the Arduino board. Projects made with this kit can be found here. When you are done with this starter kit Fritzing also offers a super upgrade kit for 74,97 EUR. This upgrade kit contains a LCD display, accelerometer, force sensor and more. It comes with the Arduino Uno board included, and it is not possible to buy the kit without the board. The price darthshine this kit is EUR 49,95 and contains leds, resistors, breadboard and more.
This is the most expensive kit since it cost 94,95 USD. This kit contains leds, motor, relais and more.
The Arduino board with this kit is the Arduino Uno. More details about this kit can be found at the SparkFun website.
Cool Components offers another Arduino starter kit with a lot of components like wires, leds, buttons and more. This kit cost EUR 45, It is quite a basic kit, with much of the components I ordered for my custom Arduino kit.

Nevertheless for 59,95 Eur it is still quite expensive compared to buying the individual components. When I checked out the prices of the kits, I found them very expensive for the components offered by the Arduino kits.
I decided to check out what each piece would have cost when I bought them separately. It turned out buying each component separately would save me a tremendous amount of money.
So I decided to make a shopping list with everything I needed.

electronnics In the next posts will describe what, why, for how much and where I bought the components for my custom build Arduino starter kit. You can view all the Arduino electrpnics I have bought here. Very curious about the follow ups. I knew my starter kit was overpriced, but I just wanted to get started and join in with the rest of the workshop group.
I have just ordered half the internet of components. As soon as they arrive I will describe and photograph them to show what is in the market, and aerthshine might be possible. I am starting with Arduino and thinking about a starterpackagebut i think in some cases like mine when someone has no experience with electro or coding, a starterpack could come in handy because of the preselected most used part.
I was not very experienced in electronics either. The truth is I learned the most by checking out all the components of the Arduino starter kits. Therefore I knew Ebay could offer me the parts cheaper, and a lot more components.
