Welcome to the Super Bright Lights Kit! This will guide you through the soldering steps that are needed to make the electronics for lighting up the LEDs that go on the front and back of Bowie. Needless to say, these LEDs are quite bright. We recommend that you do not stare at them. For this kit you will be soldering two surface mount components, and the rest will be through hole. The instructions will guide you through how to do this! Let’s get started!
- Soldering iron
- Solder (your choice – lead free or leaded)
- Third hand tool
- Desolder wick braid, or desoldering tool (just in case there are mistakes along the way)
- Diagonal cutters
- Painters tape
- Screwdriver with bit kit
- Arduino and usb cable for testing
- Jumper wires
- Hot glue gun and hot glue stick
Please note, when you are cutting the leads with diagonal cutters, to be cautious and wear eye protection. Sometimes the leads can accidentally go flying in weird directions, and you don’t want to get hurt.
