Tropical Alligator Test Clip Leads – 10 Pieces – 13″ long

Designed by Making & Hacking extraordinaire Lee Cyborg, these colorful clips are a nice switch-up from the standard colors. Connect this to that without soldering using these Hot GitHub Summer alligator clip test leads that look perfect for a beachfront environmental-sensing project. 13″ long cables with alligator clips on each end, color-coded. You get 10 pieces in 5 colors. Strong and grippy, these always come in handy! We often use these in conjunction with a multimeter so we don’t have to hold the probes in place.

Adafruit TCA4307 Hot-Swap I2C Buffer with Stuck Bus Recovery – STEMMA QT / Qwiic

As we’ve been adding STEMMA QT connectors to our breakouts and dev boards, folks have been really enjoying the simplicity and speed of plugging in I2C sensors and devices for quick iteration and design. That’s all good, but I2C wasn’t really designed for hot-plugging. You’re kinda supposed to have everything connected once on boot and never mess with it – I2C was specified for on-board connections. And, folks who have experimented with hot-plugging I2C devices eventually have discovered that if you plug in or unplug at the wrong moment you can cause the bus to hang due to an extra SCL pulse or an unexpected capacitive load.
