Sweet 16 V2 Macropad Kit

From: $16.00

SKU: KK1U0010 Categories: , , ,


The Sweet 16 V2 Macropad is an update to one of the community’s most popular DIY macropads. First introduced in 2016, the Sweet 16 has been a best seller on our site and at events like Maker Faire and New York Comic Con. Just like the original, the Sweet 16 V2 has a 4×4 grid for a total of 16 keys. This new version also introduces the RGB lighting and Underglow, and support for 2 EC11 style rotary encoders. Also new to the kit is the addition of a matching FR4 switch plate and bottom plate to complete the upgrade.

The Sweet 16 V2 is a full solder kit, this means all the components require soldering to install. It is powered by Pro Micro and similar MCUs like the Elite C, Nice!Nano (firmware coming soon), and the new Elite Pi!
