Introducing this pack of 1/4 Watt Resistors for Makers, it's the best assortment of Resistor's we know of . Resistors are used to make circuits of every kind and they're essential for almost any electronic project you'll set out to complete. This Resistor kit comes with 25 resistors for twenty commonly used resistor values (including 0 ohm links!) in a convenient, clearly labeled pocket-sized sleave.

  • Through Hole Resistors - Solder them in or use them on your breadboard.
  • Stay organised - The folded sleeve they come in is clearly labelled, secure, and a great way to keep your resistors in some sort of functional order.
  • The resistors we need! - Broken down in to 20 different values, you'll get 25 resistors for the most common values. That's 500 total.
  • Color coded - The back of the resistor kit even has a resistor colour code look-up chart and a table of colour codes for the included resistors!

How to use Resistors

This is no small topic, between pull-up resistors, LED protection resistors, putting resistors in series, in parallel, the list goes on. We're full-time makers and we use this gear on a daily basis, so we put together guides and helpful tutorials that will show you the best way to use Resistors in your circuits and projects.

Our comprehensive guide on how to choose the right Resistor is the best way to learn just what you can and can't do when using these little components.

  • How To Choose The Right Resistor.

    ok (Posted on 29/11/2018)

  2. Review by Andrew verified purchaser

    So many diodes! (Posted on 28/11/2018)

  3. Review by Oliver verified purchaser

    Really convenient little kit! Nice touch to have the code lookup on the back. (Posted on 20/11/2018)

  4. Review by Ashwin verified purchaser

    Good value. You never know when you are going to need another resistor. Having a mixture on hand is really useful. (Posted on 2/10/2018)

  5. Review by ankit verified purchaser

    Great quality resistors, neatly packaged and even have informative color codes labeled on the behind. (Posted on 3/07/2018)

  6. Review by Luton verified purchaser

    Save yourself some frustration and get this pack. Nothing worse than leaving a project unfinished for the lack of a specific resistor (Posted on 5/06/2018)

  7. Review by Sean verified purchaser

    The packaging is good and the legend is clear but the markings on the resistors themselves is sometimes very hard to discern. Okay when placing the resistors on a board but difficult to work out after they are removed. (Posted on 6/05/2018)

  8. Review by Geoff verified purchaser

    Great selection resistors, well laid out and organised. Now I just need to find a box to put them in along with the ever increasing collection of bits... (Posted on 15/03/2018)

  14. Review by Damian verified purchaser

    more resistors than I really need, but then again, resistance is futile :) (Posted on 1/08/2017)

  15. Review by Brendan verified purchaser

    This is just so handy and a must have in any hobbyists kit. Easy to access with clear labelling and handy lookup chart on the back. Highly recommended. (Posted on 26/07/2017)
