These wires with pre-crimped terminals are equivalent to Pololu's premium jumper wires without the 1×1 crimp connector housings on the ends. By combining these wires with Pololu's crimp connector housings, you can quickly and easily create custom cables with 0.1" (2.54mm) connectors that mate with various 0.1"-spaced connectors, including male and female headers and solderless breadboards. Just pick the housing for the correct number of pins, pick the colors and genders for your wires, and snap them into the housings (note: it’s not easy to get the wires back out, so plan carefully!). No soldering is required!
You can easily make cable harnesses or assemblies that branch from one connector on one side to multiple connectors on the other (an example of this is shown in the picture to the right); you can also cut off one pre-crimped end and solder the wires directly to components to make swapping connections easy, as shown in the motor picture below.
The wires are available in six lengths—3" (7.5 cm), 6" (15 cm), 12" (30 cm), 24" (60 cm), 36" (90 cm), and 60" (150 cm)—and in ten colors:

These are the same colors as those used on resistor color codes and rainbow ribbon cable. The wire packs of different lengths include different quantities of wires. The table below shows the quantity included for a particular length-color combination:
|length||monochromatic pack quantity||rainbow pack quantity|
|3"||–||50 (5 of each color)|
|6"||10||50 (5 of each color)|
|12"||10||50 (5 of each color)|
|24"||5||50 (5 of each color)|
|36"||5||20 (2 of each color)|
|60"||2||10 (1 of each color)|
These wires can be purchased with male terminals on both ends, female terminals on both ends, or one male and one female terminals. These crimped terminals are designed for use with 0.1" (2.54 mm) male headers and female headers, solderless breadboards, and prototyping PCBs. Note that Pololu also sell the crimp pins by themselves if you want to crimp your own wires.
The following video talks about some of Pololu's various wire and cable options and includes a short demonstration of how to use these pre-crimped wires with Pololu's crimp connector housings:

One of Pololu's customers has made a very nice video that talks about how to make custom cables with these pre-crimped wires and with self-crimped wires made with Pololu's crimping tool. The section on using pre-crimped wires and crimp connector housings starts at around 2:00.
