To accompany the release of the second edition of Simon’s book ‘Hacking Electronics’ in October 2017 we have expanded the original Hacking Electronics Starter Kit to produce the Hacking Electronics Mega Kit. This will provide you with a good set of components allowing you to make many of the projects in the book, as well as providing a great basic kit of parts to get you started on your electronics adventure.

We have improved the kit enormously adding a whole load of new components. Some highlights of the new kit include:

  • Digital Multimeter
  • Half-sized breadboard
  • MonkMakes Protoboard
  • Jumper lead sets for Male to Male, Female to Male and Female to Female, for connecting up breadboard Arduino and Raspberry Pi
  • 6V DC motor and servo motor
  • A big selection of components: resistors, capacitors, LEDs, transistors and ICs
  • Relay, buzzer and switches
