Sparkfun Dumpster Dive 2016 Unboxing

The day has finally arrived! Sparkfun had a dumpster dive last week, and I managed to get a 0.5lb box. I had the big box in my cart too, but it was out of stock before I could get to checkout.



With some knolling:


And now for the list of goodies:

  • FTDI 5V cable
  • 9V battery holder with barrel jack
  • 56 and 200K resistors
  • 10K pot with wires
  • 4 matching pot knobs
  • VGA connector
  • Lilypad Arduino v1.1 (works so far)
  • 5pk of lilypad green LEDs.
  • 12pk of some 12A 60V P-Channel MOSFETs (NTD2955)
  • 3V coin cell
  • some kind of snapping connectors for fabric (Female half)
  • A slightly mangled breadboard
  • A base for a breadboard and some Dev board.
  • some screws (hopefully M3 but might be #4-40)
  • some Brass standoffs (hopefully M3 but might be #4-40)
  • some small female headers (mostly 1×4)
  • An enclosure with some milled holes (happens to be a Polycase housing that i have in stock already)

most of this is actually pretty useful to me, so not bad for my first dumpster dive.
