Cheap Gold Female single row 0.1" headers?
« on: March 15, 2016, 10:28:57 pm »
Why are these things so darn expensive? For like a 6 long one at digikey they are like $0.85 each.

Also does anyone know if they make breakable female ones like they do the male ones? That way you buy a long strip instead of all the sizes you need?

Amazon and eBay for that sort of stuff, including even the machined turned pin variety, all of it from China of course.

Standard female headers can easily be broken down, just you lose a pin in the process.

Say you want a 6 pin header, count off 6 pins, then score down the center of the 7th, the strip will snap along the score then you just clean up the cut end with your knife.
