Hi Larry

$52 AUD.

Looks like it's OK. Do you have a link to the package.

In the future you may need a 5 volt power supply rated at 2-4 amps.

I was actually thinking of using a 2A mobile charger. Do you think it will be enough? Or I can buy a 9V power supply.

Looks good. A 7 or 9 volt wallwart with center + for your UNO. http://www.adafruit.com/product/63 Make sure the connector fits the UNO.

Later another power supply (external) 5 volt at 2-4 amps may be needed. For servos etc.

I would also recommend: http://www.amazon.com/Arduino-Cookbook-Edition-Michael-Margolis/dp/1449313876

Thank you very much Lerry!

When you buy a wallwart make sure it can plug into your power outlet and is rate for the AC (120 or 220 VAC) voltage in your country.

I found one on Ebay that is actually for Arduino. I believe that's the correct one. I was also thinking of getting a portable usb power bank so than I can recharge it instead of use a 9V battery. I want to play with a few LED first, just to learn how to use the software.

Do you use Arduino for big projects?

Do you use Arduino for big projects?

Yes. For more memory I use Bobuino2.
