We at Adafruit always like to have a few spools of wire around, which is why these neatly boxed sets are such a treat! The box has a plastic dowel rod to hold the spools in place and let them spin, and there are little punch-outs you can pass the wire through so it’ll stay nicely organized.
All of these boxes contain 25ft spools of 22 AWG wire, and you choose between sets of six or ten, solid-core or stranded-core. The wire is easy to solder to, and when bent it keeps its shape pretty well. Solid-core works best with breadboards and perfboards but also fits nicely in terminal blocks. Stranded-core wire is best used for wiring jigs where there’s bending or movement expected, and it too works well with terminal blocks. Stranded-core, however, is not great for use with breadboards.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
