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.
Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

When creating small circuits on a solderable breadboard I'll often attach 2 header pins in order to connect up a power source. I then use this to quickly attach a power source.

What connector would you use with this to connect it to your board?
The mating connector is PRT-08233. A 2-pin 0.1" header would also work.
It would be nice to know the wire gauge. I would like to use this for a battery pack that supplies over an amp.
What is the wire gauge on this?
Can I use it with Android IOIO http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10748?
Yes, you would need headers to connect to the IOIO, or just cut the wires and solder them directly to the board.
Would you consider selling this without the barrel connector on it, like in the PICAXE 8 Pin Proto Kit? I'd like to simply solder the leads to my PCB.
just cut the wires before the connector ;)
