If you’re a DIY enthusiast who likes to micro-manage your project’s connections, here is a 10-pack of some micro JST SH connectors! They’re solid plastic with 4 x 1mm pitch through-hole mounting tabs. In an SMT line you can just paste over the through holes and the pads will solder in place.
These connectors can be used with Qwiic boards and cables to easily connect sensors and drivers from one board to the other. Match them up with the cables if you want to maintain compatibility (The cables are made symmetrically so don’t worry about which side goes where!) When used with Qwiic the pins are:

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.
