Was pleased to find that these use standard pin spacing.
Makes a solid connection to the connector.
Fits in well an does not budge much. Nice.
Does this one have the integral switch?
No, there is no switch in this unit.
Nice solid fit on a solderless breadboard, and then you can move it directly to a protoboard and solder it in. The four plastic nubs near the front corners drop into standard spacing holes to give it extra mechanical support for when you're inserting or removing a plug.
The only trick is to make sure you don't bend the ground pin when pressing it into a solderless breadboard.
Price seems very competitive with the big suppliers.
