Description: This is a simple two wire cable. Great for jumping from board to board or just about anything else. There is a 2-pin JST connector on one end, bare cable on the opposite end. It also comes with the mating connector for the JST.
Dimensions: 6" length
Based on 2 ratings:
I have used a couple hundred of these. I don’t use the female socket that comes with the the assembly because it is too easily bent when connecting and disconnecting. (I use a surface mount socket that has 4 points of contact and is generally more robust.) Sometimes the fit is a little tight and sometimes it is a little loose. I am not sure if it is the male or female part or both that vary. Overall it gets the job done and has been quite reliable. I would give it five stars if I could get in the exact length that I want.
It would really be nice to have information on the connector size. I had to dig through the SparkFun Eagle library to find it (2 mm?). The fit was still too snug with the 2 mm smd female connectors on my board, so I had to file these down. I’m not sure if that was a manufacturing issue, or I didn’t get the size right. An actually useful datasheet/product page would be greatly appreciated!
