Ribbon cable is really helpful in situations where you need to make a lot of connections without a big mess of wires. Nothing makes a project look more finished than a nice clean wiring harness.
This is a 15ft. length of 6-wire ribbon cable. Check the related products below for crimp-on connectors that will fit this cable.

I made my mom a USB bracelet with a flash drive built in. This was rather handy. Also used it to fly a prototype to around 90,000 ft. The wire is rather fine, and after hand soldering several of these, I recommend using one of the ribbon crimps with it.

Using this without crimp connectors calls for steady hands, a sharp knife, and patience.
Due to how small the wires are, stripping them can easily result in a cut wire instead of a bare one. I'd honestly prefer a slightly thicker gauge, but it is what it is.
The first time I bought it it was smaller then expected, but useful in messy situations. Having a ribbon crimp connector makes it more easy.
