Where to buy prototyping hardware
In our tech blog posts and slyft tutorials we’re writing much about the ESP8266-based NodeMCU and the Grove Kit, including its sensors and components. Quite some people asked us where to buy these things, so we decided to compile a list of shops (mostly EU-based) where you can find some or all or the parts we’re using.
Of course, the #1 address for Grove is Seeedstudio (US/China): www.seeestudio.com
Typically they have all these things in stock:
- NodeMCU (or other ESP-based boards),
- the Grove Base shield for NodeMCU
- and of course Grove components.
They also have a list of distributors, per region.
In germany, EXP-Tech is one distributor with quite large selection of Grove components. Unfortunately they don’t have the Base Shield in Stock (yet :)
