The Monk Makes Speaker for micro:bit is a neat little amplified speaker that connects to your micro:bit using alligator clips.

Features

  • Amplified output
  • LED ‘power on’ indicator
  • Reverse polarity protection

Getting Started

Connecting to your micro:bit

Connect the Speaker to the micro:bit as shown below. When attaching the alligator clips to the micro:bit, make sure that the clips are perpendicular to the board so that they are not touching any of the neighbouring connectors on the micro:Bit edge connector.
