Resistor 330 Ohm 1/4 Watt PTH - 20 pack (Thick Leads)

These are your run-of-the-mill 1/4 Watt, +/- 5% tolerance PTH resistors. Commonly used in breadboards and other prototyping applications, these 330 ohm resistors make excellent LED current limiters and are great for general use. These thick-lead versions of the resistors fit snugly into a breadboard with very little movement, so you should have few to no issues using them in your next project!

These resistors come in bags of 20. They are the same resistors found in the SparkFun Inventor's Kit v4.0, upgraded from the resistors in previous versions of the kit.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

  • Resistors with thin leads are very difficult to breadboard with because the leads often just collapse when trying to insert them (they're so thin and flimsy I call them 'angel hair' leads). So difficult in fact, that I want to be sure I don't ever buy any more. So can you tell me what is the diameter of your resistor leads that you call thick leads, and what is the diameter of the other resistor leads? Thank you.

  • I have almost 2500 1/4w resistors of about 50 of the most common values. Each value has about 30 resistors. I have more 330, 1k, 10k, and a couple than the other values.

    What do you guys suggest to store them in for organization with regards to compactness. I have tried plano cases, but the resistors can easily get mixed up
