So my kit arrived today and I thought it is now the best time to say a quick greeting, pass on my initial observations and ask about an extremely minor issue.
Me: So I'm an IT professional by trade with a long established love of technology and somewhat passionate about understanding the world around me. I'm a complete robot amateur but plenty of experience with programming. I'm likely to need help with components and electronics while likely to help with coding and generalised issues.
EZ-Kit: So, like I said I just got my EZ-Robot kit and it's fair to say the excitement and creative juices are rife! Everything about this product is excellent; the price, features, presentation, contents, delivery time... everything! Just a small note on the power cables for fellow UK residents though, you will need a travel adaptor to accompany your kit.
Small Problem: I ordered the bench power supply but when I plugged it in (via the travel adaptor with the supplied kettle lead) the LED on the pack didn't light up and no power to the EZB I whipped out the batteries and connected to battery pack and the board is fine (phew!) so thinking that either the power cord or pack is faulty, I connected a standard UK kettle cable but the pack still doesn't come to life. Any suggestions what I can try next? I thought I'd ask here before cracking it open and prodding around. We're 230V mains voltage here in the UK if that makes any difference.
tl;dr I love my new EZ-Robot kit
