      Hello Everyone,

      Is there an opportunity to purchase the miniSD card adapter separately?
      Or is the only option to buy the starter kit?
      I have a separate enclosure that I intend to use and that SD card slot adapter would be very helpful.

      Thanks!

      It’s actually a microSD card slot, not a miniSD. And no, we don’t sell the adapter separately due to the complexity and cost of selling one small item on Amazon. I could sell a multi-pack of them on Amazon, but I’m not sure there’s much demand for that, since everyone who has previously wanted an adapter either needed only one or ended up buying the starter kit anyway.

        Hi Shannon

        Would it possible that I complete a large purchase of them? I am working on building an intermittent stream monitor and intend to deploy as many as possible.

        I have a few questions regarding the kit, and some if its components.
        If possible, can we discuss further Shannon? Via email?

        Thanks a lot

      I just thought I would add this option to the forum in case someone else has the same issue because I recently broke the vertical adapter that came with one of my kits.

      I found this solution on Amazon:

      Not as easy to use as the vertical adapter and you will need to take care that the metal part of the card holder doesn’t touch the board while it is powered, but it does work.

        That is an interesting part, but I agree that the most dangerous thing about using it is the possibility of having the metal part of the holder (which is connected to the negative or ground side of the board power rail) contacting something inside the Mayfly case and shorting things out.

        We’re planning to offer a 5-pack of just the vertical card adapters for sale very shortly, so we’ll post more about that when it’s available.
