Arduino UNO Clones
Clones are allowed to use the name “UNO” but not the Arduino logo since they are not supporting the project. Arduino official boards are the only ones that can legitimately use the Arduino name. They are also cheaper than the official ones.
It’s the most famous Arduino Clone. It’s 100% compatible with official Arduino software, sensors, modules and codes. There are lots of reviews about this product and a lot of people use it. It includes a free pdf tutorial with 22 projects. This set is an upgraded version and now includes a power supply module, 9V battery with DC. Usually it’s half the price of an official one.
Very complete set. More than 200 components in a Starter Kit for Arduino. If you are a beginner, in this set you have everything you could want in your projects and to advance with Arduino. The perfect gift for anyone interested in electronics, programming and to discover the Arduino world (teens, grandpa, uncle…).
