Through Hole

Through-hole resistors are the most basic component which controls the flow of current in your circuit. Having a good selection is essential for prototyping.

  1. Resistor 10K Ohm 1/6th Watt PTH - 20 pack
    Rating:
    100% of 100
    SKU: COM-11508 Brand: Sparkfun
    1/6th Watt, +/- 5% tolerance PTH resistors. Commonly used in breadboards and perf boards, these 10K resistors make excellent pull-ups, pull-downs, and current limiters. We’ve opted for a new and more breadboard-friendly lead thickness (they’re a bit thicker than our last ones).

Power

Low-value resistors allow lots of current to flow, and this means a lot of power dissipation. Power resistors are specially designed to handle high power loads.

  1. Power Resistor Kit - 10W (25 pack)
    Rating:
    100% of 100
    SKU: KIT-13053 Brand: Sparkfun
    Holy Wattage, Batman! This Power Resistor Kit comes with 5 each of 5 different 10 Watt resistor values including 1, 2, 4, 8, and 16 Ohms. These resistors are capable of dissipating large amounts of power without damaging themselves. This kit is perfect for testing projects that require large amounts of power while only requiring low resistance.
