The Pogo Pin Probe Clip is a great way to test and connect with pin-point accuracy without soldering! It’s sort of like an alligator clip with a built in springy pogo pin – so you can connect to any PCB pad for ‘scoping, analyzing or multimetering
The clip is strong enough to grip onto a PCB, but has a soft grip so it won’t mar or damage circuits. The ‘tongue’ is a round-tip pogo pin – a little spring-loaded contact that’s very handy for making momentary electrically solid contacts. The continuity goes through the clip and out to a solder-friendly crimp connector.
You could also use this for connecting to batteries, wearables, just about anything where you wish you had a third/fouth/etc hand to hold a probe in place.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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.
