The Electron is a tiny development kit for creating 3G cellular-connected electronics projects and products. It comes with a Particle SIM card (Nano 4FF) and an affordable data plan for low-bandwidth applications. Plus, it’s available to more than 100 countries worldwide, and includes three months of Particle’s 1MB monthly data plan for IoT devices!
The Electron Kit also comes with Particle’s development tools and cloud platform for managing and interacting with your new connected hardware. The Electron can be powered via the VIN (3.9V–12VDC) pin, the USB Micro-B connector or a LiPo battery (included).
The Electron is a GSM-only device and does not support CDMA networks. Since this Electron operates at 900/1,800 MHz it is only available for customers in Europe, Asia and Africa. If you live in the Americas or Australia, we recommend the Electron that operates at 850/1,900 MHz. Continent compatibility is simplified, and exceptions exist. Please make sure to check the full list of compatible countries for the location where you wish to use your Electron.
