Arduino Header Kit - Retail

These headers are made to work with the Arduino Main Board, Arduino Pro, and the Arduino Mega. They are the perfect height for clearing the USB-B connector and great for stacking multiple shields. This kit includes 4 headers (2 8-pin and 2 6-pin), enough to connect a shield to an Arduino Main Board. These are the same headers we use in our tutorials and with our own shields.

Note: If you have a board that uses the Arduino R3 architecture which include the OREF, SCL, and SDA pins they can be found here. We know that many boards still do not use the R3 layout so we like keeping this kit available for those situations!

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

Customer Comments

  • A related product, for those of you that would rather save a dollar than collect the Sparkfun retail packaging, is just the connectors (product SKU PRT-10007).

    • Correct. For our online customers, we recommend just getting the normal headers (now added to the relateds). But retail is nice if you’re giving a gift though.
