Customer Reviews

  1. Review by Myles verified purchaser

    Easy to solder and snap apart/together. Using them for some portable projects as USB charging connectors and they work great. (Posted on 12/03/2018)

  2. Review by Robin verified purchaser

    Simple snap-together case, and a solid plug. Found that the kids rough handling required a zip-tie around it to ensure it stayed together, but 'normal' handling is just fine. (Posted on 22/12/2017)

  3. Review by Anthony verified purchaser

    Ideal for hobbyists, easy to solder. (Posted on 24/05/2017)

  4. Review by Scott - Great product verified purchaser

    This item was ideal for the project I was working on.

    It was delivered quickly and at a great price too. (Posted on 6/10/2014)
