Coffee is good.
What is the best option for connecting the header into a connector? Do you sell it here?
I ordered this and a set of breakaway headers only to find that the connector end fits very loosely onto them, if at all….
This is a great product by the way - very happy with the quality.
GREAT! That’s great news. I figured they would fit but I wanted to be sure. I just placed my order - can’t wait! I’m adding an auxiliary USB port to my iHome and am in the final stages of prototyping so this will be perfect.
Does anyone know if the BREAK AWAY MALE STRAIGHT HEADERS will fit into the VCC/D+/D-/GND through-hole solder points?
What I would like to do is break off a section of 4, and solder them on so that I can make this breadboard-able.
I’m currently adding a USB charging port to my alarm clock. There’s a 10V section where I will tap off to my 5V regulator circuit. I strongly believe my iPod/iPhone 5 will use any where between 500mA to 1.5A MAX. Can anyone give insight into if these wires are capable of carrying that amount of current safely? I’m searching online and I can’t really find a concrete source of information… (it’s all almost brand-specific)
Also, the fact that SparkFun doesn’t really carry any other gauge makes me believe that these are really a general purpose wire that can be used for anything from breadboarding to small electronics mods like what I’m doing. I do know that ratings are important however so that is why I am asking before I purchase a bulk pack like this. Thank you! Loving this site!!
