Product overview

• Make a great amp with a 30 pin iPod/iPhone input, on/off switch and volume control
• Create an amp with 1W output per channel and 2 channels
• Minimal soldering is required with 8 parts
• Requires a 9V battery or 12V power supply (not included)
• Designed and manufactured in the UK by Kitronik

What can I make with this kit?
With up to 1 watt output per channel and 2 channels this amplifier kit (manufactures code 2141B-IP) is a great way to listen to your MP3 player. No need to spend time soldering, everything this kit comes with is PCB pre-built. An on/off switch, power LED and volume control are built into the kit. Connects straight into your 30 pin iPod/iPhone so you can listen to your music. This kit requires a DC 2-15V power supply. A single 9V (PP3) battery (not included) or a DC 12V power supply (not included) are recommended.
What is included in this kit?
No need to solder most of the components, as the PCB is already pre-built. All you need to connect is the 30 pin iPod lead, speakers and power clip. The kit amplifies the voltage and current of the input signal with the amplifier integral chip (a TDA2822M chip) and the potentiometer (or variable resistor) works as a volume control. The signal is then transferred to the speakers which translate it into sound. Minimal soldering is required with this kit – you only need to solder the speakers, jack and battery clip.

How difficult is this to solder?
This is a great kit for those who are not comfortable soldering or want to demonstrate how a speaker works. The kit comes with two 8 ohm 66mm speakers and 30 pin iPod lead. You can build your own enclosure (not included) to protect the electronics and make your own audio system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Kit was not pre-built as per the description The description says "All you need to connect is the 30 pin iPod lead, speakers and power clip". This is not the case, you have to : Place the resistors; Solder the IC holder; Solder the ceramic disc adapters; solder the LED; solder the switch; solder the power socket; solder the electrolytic capacitors; solder the dual potentiometer; connect the speakers; attach the battery clip; connect the audio cable. I will get around to it and when I do I will provide a review of the function, but it id definitely not as described as being "a great kit for those who are not comfortable soldering".

can i use this to accept an input signal from a car stereo line out (Va max 3Veff at 10k ohms) to go to a power amplifier? 

Asked by: Delta990
No, I am sorry but this will not be suitable for this purpose.

Could the 30 pin lead be swapped for a 1/4 inch input jack so you could plug a guitar into the amp and amplify the guitar?

Asked by: outoftune
Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee full compatibility for this item, as this is not the manner for which it was designed to be used.

Can the iphone cable be replaced for one with the smaller iphone 5 and onwards plug?

Asked by: Floyd1677
The included plug would be hard wired to the board once complete, it would be possible to use the following adapter to use newer Apple devices; http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/apple-lightning-to-30-pin-adapter-a30lj

Could this be used as a headphone amp.

Asked by: leigh jones
Maplin do not advise on the modification or redesign of units I am afraid (as this would affect your product warranty).

Could I plug a microphone into this item

Asked by: Welshtrooper
Yes but a Mic pre-amp would need to be used.

Does this also charge a phone if using a mains adapter instead of a battery?

Asked by: ClaireF
Unfortunately not, the 30-pin connector is wired for sound only, not power.
