P2N2222AG: the most used transistor in the Maker area
The P2N2222AG NPN transistor is probably one of the most widely used transistors in electronic assemblies. It is capable of switching a current of 0.6A (600 mA) which allows it to be used in medium power assemblies.
It will be very useful for controlling a relay, a solenoid, an electric motor for hobbyists, a set of LEDs, ... In short, anything that consumes more than the standard 10mA recommended on an Arduino output.
