NEW PRODUCTS – Arcade Button and Switch Quick-Connect Wires – 0.187″ + 0.25″


Quick connector wire sets make wiring up our arcade-style or metal buttons quicky-quick. Each wire comes as a ‘pair’ with two quick-connects pre-crimped. The wires are terminated together in a JST 2.5mm 2-pin connector. This connector will fit in 0.1″ headers, so it’s breadboard compatible or you can stick two wires into the end. Of course, you can chop this off if there’s no use for it.

If you need a connector for the other side, try this JST XH (matching part from Digi-Key here)

First up, Arcade Button and Switch Quick-Connect Wires – 0.187″

We’ve found these work with our:

But they are not compatible with the LED contacts Massive and Large Arcade buttons. For those, you’ll want the 0.25″ Arcade/Button Quick-Connect Wire Pairs. We also have 0.11″ Quick-Connects.

We’ve also noticed that while these are the right size, they may be a little loose on some switches. You can crimp them a little more with a pair of pliers to get a better grip!

We’ve found these work best with our:

But they are not compatible with our smaller LED and mini arcade and buttons. For those, you’ll want either the 0.11″ Quick-Connect Wire pairs or the 0.187″ Quick-Connect Wire pairs.

8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!

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.
