Learning about Arduino can be an exciting adventure into Electronics, but it’s not always easy to find a package that provides everything you need to get a good start into making Arduino projects. This is why the Basic Arduino Uno Starter Kit is such a great investment if you’re interested in electronics and Arduino, as it includes LED’s, jumper wires, resistors, pin headers, a breadboard, a 9V power connector, a USB cable and an Arduino UNO R3 CH340, which is the perfect combination to begin experimenting, practicing and building up towards more complex projects – plus a few extras.

Although this kit doesn’t have the widest selection of components and extras that some of the other Arduino Kits have, it is primarily designed as an introduction to using microcontrollers and building electronic circuitry. This is why the components included are relatively simple, as it’s important to actually understand each step of the way when learning fundamentals, after which you can move on to more advanced components that do a lot more than just light up or blink. Of course, this kit also includes the basic necessities, such as a USB-A to USB-B cable for programming Arduino Boards, a breadboard for Prototyping circuits without soldering, as well as resistors for precisely controlling the current that you’re sending around the circuit.

If you’re brand new to electronics, and are eager to get a kit that not only helps you learn the basics, but also provides some fundamental parts for many more future projects, the Arduino UNO Basic Starter Kit is a relatively cheap but very valuable kit to help you get a running start into Electronics and microcontrollers.

Tips for Operation: In order to try get costs for these kits as low as possible, so that anyone can enjoy learning and practicing their electronics skills, we've chosen to include a specialised CH340G version of the Arduino UNO R3, and while this does help make the kit very affordable, it does require some specialised drivers to operate properly. Fortunately, these are very easy to install, and once installed will ensure that your Arduino UNO acts just like it should, and these can be found in the specifications table below. If you need them, MacOS and Linux Drivers can also be found in the "Downloads" tab just above the description.
