Product description:

This fantastic new Electro-Fashion kit from Kitronik has been specially designed so that electronics can easily be used in textile applications - without soldering!

The kit includes conductive thread (which is a thread that can be used like cotton thread but conducts electricity like a wire), our own custom designed Sewable Coin Cell Holder, one coin cell battery, and two ultra slim, pre-mounted, easy sew E-Textile LEDs.

The coin cell holder has the benefit of large, easy-to-stitch connection points (no more difficult little holes!) and clearly marked terminals that show the battery polarity.

The LEDs are less than 3mm tall and are also clearly marked with '+' and '-' to indicate which is the positive and which is the negative connection. The PCBs are double sided, making the conductive thread connection very reliable (see example picture below).

Features:

  • Ultra Slim Sewable LEDs.
  • Easily add lights to textiles projects.
  • Easy-to-stitch connection points.
  • Clearly marked '+' and '-' connections..
  • No soldering required.

Question:

I wish to add wearable electronics to clothing for retail so what other type of battery can i use if the cell coin holders containing nickel should not be near the skin? or is it acceptable to cover it so it can be sold on safely. Thank you, Orla

    Hi, as long as it's covered it's fine. Some people have a nickel allergy which can cause a skin rash from prolonged contact.
