Description: This is a 10-pin socket with 2mm pitch that mates with the popular XBee radio from Digi. Use this small part to avoid having to solder your precious radio to a PCB. You’ll need two of these sockets to connect to all 20 pins on the XBee.
These headers can also be cut to work with the RFID breakout board.
Please Note: This item is sold singly, not in pairs.

Even if I had read all those negative comments from years ago, I would have assumed by now that a great distributor like SparkFun would have fixed the problem of solder leaking into the sockets and ruining them.
I won’t make that mistake again; unless SparkFun staff respond to negative comments, I will assume the issue is still unresolved.
Hi, The physical construction of this part allows for some space where solder could soak up into the header holes. Using a small amount of solder, and being cautious to not over heat the pin will help to avoid issues with solder soak. Thanks
