The bundles will include:

  • HackerBox 0091 Monthly Subscription Box 
  • Additional Badge Components:
    • Exclusive Badge PCB for mounting Fibonacci Spiral PCB
    • Three-Slot AA Battery Holder with Velcro Strap
    • 5V DC/DC Boost Converter Module
    • DPDT Battery Isolation Switch
    • Two 1M Resistors (for touch pad activation)
    • Four Female 5 pin Headers
    • Additional Male Header Pins
