Customer Comments

  • Does this material change resistance when stretched?

    • This doesn’t actually stretch, so that’s a non-issue.

  • Does the crimped FFC plug into any of your battery holders? Any of your LED holders? Photo in tutorial shows using copper tape.

  • Can’t be soldered to? Challenge Accepted. Now, where’s my Oxy-Acetylene torch?

    Honestly, I’m glad SparkFun put that disclamer in there. No false advertising on this site!

  • These looks like superconductors used in LHC

  • How much can this hadle? I’m thinking of using this for a full-body camera taser. Could this take the volts?
