And you will never have enough of them. I have to order a strip or two with every other order. You can use wire cutters to get the amount you need, but I always just break them. And if you get a few too many broken off, you can use those in something else.
I haven't met bad male headers, these are like the others, great and useful
Always have a wide selection of pins available. Some times you just need a board to go at a right angle to another.
You need these. Well, maybe not all the time, but they can come in handy, so for under $2 you should buy a set to fill your toolbox.
These things, you just can’t have enough of them. One thing is you might lose one or two cutting them. That’s a given.
