Geekcreit ESP32 Development Board Goes for $4 Shipped (Promo)

While you may have thought Wemos Lolin32 board selling for $6.9 plus shipping was already a decent deal, you can now buy a breadboard friendly ESP32 development board for the normal price of ES8266 board thanks to a promotion on Banggood selling 1,000 pieces of “Geekcreit ESP32” board for $4.09 including shipping, and valid until September 10, or while stock lasts.

It looks to be roughly the same design as the fake NodeMCU ESP-32s board I once spotted:

  • Wireless Module – ESP-WROOM-32 with Espressif ESP32 dual core processor with 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 LE
  • Expansion – 2x 19 pin headers with GPIOs, Analog inputs (ADC), UART, I2C, VP/VN, etc…; breadboard compatible
  • USB – 1x micro USB port for power and programming
  • Misc – BOOT and EN buttons, red (power) and blue (GPIO2) LEDs
  • Power Supply – 5V via USB or Vin pin
  • Dimensions – 51.4 x 28.3 mm

But instead, it’s made by, and called ESP32 Devkit v1. Banggood link to LuaNode Github repo, but you should be able to use anything you want to progrm the board including Arduino Core, Espruino, Micropython, ESP-IDF SDK, etc…

  1. The ESP32 boards with pin labels on top are the ones that do not fit regular breadboards.

    The two main criteria I look for in an ESP32 dev board in this form factor are: 1) header pins are right next to module without a gap so they fit standard breadboards, and 2) there is a power LED (red) and a user LED (blue).

    It should also be noted that selection of crystal (xtal) matters. The SparkFun board uses a non standard xtal and requires a special setting:

    Thanks for this deal! I’ve been looking at some of these boards and I have never seen a price this good. It was enough to get me signed up on ganggood–which I had been resisting. Because, well, who needs yet another rabbit hole of a market to get lost in? 🙂
