What does the kit make?
Listen to any device with a 3.5mm mono jack socket with this amplifier kit (manufacturer code 1054). Just plug into a 3.5mm mono socket (a standard small headphone socket) with this 13 piece kit and hear your mic. This kit can output up to 1.25 Watt on its single channel. This kit requires a DC 4-12V power supply, a single 9V (PP3) battery (not included) or a DC 12V power supply (not included) are recommended.

What is in this kit?
Learn about electronics and circuits and practice soldering with this kit. The kit uses resistors, capacitors, a microchip and a speaker. Learn how they are connected in a circuit and get practical experience soldering them. Use the components to create this amplifier and see how they come together in a circuit. The kit amplifies the voltage and current of the input signal with the amplifier integral chip (a LM386 chip) control. The signal is then transferred to the speaker which translates it into sound. This kit requires soldering and may require wire cutters.

How difficult is this to solder?
This is a good kit for novices and those with some knowledge of electronics. The kit comes with one 8 ohm 66mm speakers and 3.5mm mono jack lead. You can build your own enclosure (not included) to protect the electronics and make your own microphone speaker system.
