I am here to fix the Cable.

    Red and Blue denote wire gauge, not male or female.

    I found this post on the comments on this connector :

    “FYI: I happen to have some of the Sparkfun arcade buttons (both kinds). I measured the terminals on both (with calipers), and here are the results: “Concave Button” (COM-09336): 0.187 inches – will work with 1/5” (0.2", a little big, but close enough) “Push Button” (COM-09177): 0.110 inches – way too small for 0.2" quick disconnects"

    Yes, please! I don’t understand why they wouldn’t sell both.

  • Product COM-09340 | about 11 months ago

    Yes, it would be nice if the terminal width was listed in the description.

    I’d like to see an actual answer to EliTheIceMan’s question. His point is valid, regardless of use. If the wire I have is small, and I need a female connector, then I need a RED female connector, because those are for 22-16 AWG. Then I can put it on whatever I’m putting it on and insulate it as I see fit. There should be males and females in both red (22-16 AWG) and blue (16-14 AWG) offered.

    I just took one apart. It is possible to get to the plate under the dome to print on a word or insert a label.

    I wish this was black. I can’t put red cables on the things I’m making, so I have to buy from somewhere else, where I don’t know the quality is good. I was willing to pay your higher price for these when they were black. Black is the old black, gentlemen.

  • Product COM-09181 | about 2 years ago

    Yeah, I just ordered two and they both came with red LEDs. I hope it’s as bright as the 12v bulb, which I did eventually get to work right from my board, and was very bright. They definitely need to update the description.

    I too would like to see this in LED form, so that I can power it directly from my board, and program it to do fun stuff and have it all be powered on one USB cable.

No public wish lists :(
