SparkFun Electronics will be closed on July 3rd, 2015 in observance of Independence Day. Any orders placed after 2:00pm MT on July 2nd will be shipped out after the weekend. Thanks!
Description: If you need to knock up a quick prototype there’s nothing like having a pile of jumper wires to speed things up, and let’s face it: sometimes you want quantity over quality. These are the same jumper wires that come with the SparkFun Inventor’s Kit, they’re less rugged than the premium jumper wires but they’re great for bread-boarding, they’re less expensive and we sell them in packs of 30! They may not hold up to year after year of abuse but they’re a good value and we use them all the time here at SparkFun, both in classes and personal projects. Your pack of 30 jumper wires will be a random assortment of various colors.

Out of the 30 wires, 6 have ends that either lost the plastic insulator or the whole pin/insulator was missing. I knew they weren’t ‘premium’ grade but I expected them to be assembled and complete on arrival.

These jumpers are garbage. They seem nice at first glance, but the tips are all coated with a micro-thin layer of glue that makes them conduct poorly and randomly. They’re useless unless one goes through the tedious process of cleaning/tinning all the ends prior to use.
Hi, This is the first time we have heard of this issue. We’ve sold literally hundreds of thousands of these and this is the first complaint about a micro coating of glue. Give us a call or email and we can help you out with this issue. Thanks
I bought both these and a set of the fixed length wires that are bent into position. Both are good, but these jumper wires tend to be more versatile for fast prototyping on a breadboard.
I have been using this wires jumper for years in my prototyping projects. They save me a lot of time and they just work well .
I’m pretty rough on the components I can be rough on and save my concern for those that need it. So for Jumpers, I yank at them and toss them into my tool box with abandon. These ones are really durable and have so far held up really well to multiple redesigns and project break downs.
These are pretty good, the variety of colors is really useful. I wish the diameter of the end pieces of metal were wider so that they would stick more firmly in the breadboard.
They are as described …. very useful for those quickies …. and the price can’t be beat. Use to make my own …. not anymore.
Not sure what else to say. I used all 30 in a prototype and they all worked.
They are jumper wires, so there isn’t much to be said, but I never had a problem with them and they stuck to my breadboard holes well.
