Description: Holy Wattage, Batman! This Power Resistor Kit comes with 5 each of 5 different 10 Watt resistor values including 1 Ohm, 2 Ohm, 4 Ohm, 8 Ohm, and 16 Ohm. These resistors are capable of dissipating large amounts of power without damaging themselves. This kit is perfect for testing projects that require large amounts of power while only requiring low resistance.
This kit comes in a box of 25.
Based on 2 ratings:
I’m using them with some LEDs and an lm317t to create a constant current source. I’m using the 2Ohm ones. They are working great, and they are never even warm. Beware though, each one is about two inches long.
This pack of resistors was just what I wanted to add to my parts box. I needed to discharge failed LiPo batteries in a short time, for disposal. So far I only used one of the resistors. The kit is a fine assortment.
