In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except Adafruit need headers, headers, and more headers!
Each pack contains ten 36-pin short break-away male headers, 0.1" pitch. These headers are very short for matching with Adafruit's short female headers. Normal male headers are a little longer and need to be cut down to be as slim as possible.
Breakaway headers are like the duct tape of electronics. They're great for connecting things together, soldering to perf-boards, sockets for wires or break-away header, etc. Adafruit go through these guys real fast, and thought that given how handy they are, we'd offer them in a pack of ten!
These headers are even gold plated so they wont oxidize! You can cut these down to different sizes fairly easily, simply break apart, or use diagonal cutters to cut in between pins.

A couple of years ago, I found a modern jukebox (with iPod connectivity, AM/FM radio, CD player and LEDs) dumped in my street. The body was in decent condition but all of the electronics were ruined apart from the LEDs. I decided to take it and replace all of the electronics with my own and add a few cool features.
