These jumper wires come with a twist! Instead of going from 0.1″/2.54mm pitch headers to breadboard or something like that, these are 2.54mm to 2.0mm! Handy for making wire harnesses or jumpering to annoying 2mm-pitch connectors, these premium female-female jumper wires are around 8″ (200mm) long and come in a ‘strip’ of 40.
Each pair of wires has 2 2.54mm (.1″) sockets on one end and a sing 2×2.00mm (.08″) socket on the other on the other end (1x2mm aren’t available). This allows you to connect products with 2.00mm header spacing like the XBees to a breadboard! Just put extra-long male headers in the breadboard and connect!
These come in a ribbon strip but you can always pull the ribbon wires off to make individual jumper wires OR keep them together to make neatly organized wire harnesses.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
