Any female headers will do, but the 3D printed enclosure is sized for the 7mm breakaway female headers I am using (see pictures)
×1
Adafruit Feather Stacking Headers - 12-pin and 16-pin female headers
×1
Adafruit Lithium Ion Polymer Battery - 3.7v 1200mAh
Optional. You can also power the Feather through the 5V MicroUSB connector. This one fits the 3D printed enclosure.
×1
Adafruit uFL SMT Antenna Connector
Optional. Only if you want an external LoRa antenna.
×1
SMA Antenna
Optional. Only if you want an external LoRa antenna. Any SMA/RP-SMA Antenna will do.
