As of today Members of CCHS are entitled to a 30% discount at Freetronics webstore. The code is exclusive to our Membership and you will all be receiving an email with it in the next day (along with a reminder of all the Member Exclusive discounts available). We’ll send this message out to paying members each time the codes update.

CCHS and Freetronics have a long history of collaboration, Our Laser Cutter is powered by boards they helped manufacture, the HackCNC was produced by them and they have frequently donated parts and modules from their catalogue to help power devices in our hackerspace. We are very happy to have them onboard as a sponsor.

Freetronics stock the highest quality Arduino compatible boards and modules we have seen, all of their boards accept greater voltage ranges and are built with top notch components guaranteed to outlast any cheap knockoffs and cram as much prototyping space onboard as they possibly can. We particularly love their Experimenter kit which is a great way to get started with Arduino.  Their 4x4x4 LED Cube is stunningly fun and a true test of your assembly skills and lastly the Leostick is the greatest tiny Arduino Leonardo you can find out there (Only ~$20 with your new discount!). Lastly they have an excellent range of Arduino compatible displays and modules.

So check your email, grab the code and stock up. http://www.freetronics.com/
