Hey there,
I am a new Arduino user.
I picked up one from amazon and wanted to know what kind of jumper wires are ideal for this microcontroller.
I have loads of female to female jumper wires but as you know, in Arduino, they are useless. So please tell me what kind of jumper wires do I use.

Thank You :)

Get the equvalent looking ones in  male to male for most use.. Then you can make a male-female by sticking one of each m/m and f/f together for when you need one.

Thank you but do you prefer male to male or female to male?

If this is for solder-less breadboard circuits, you can use solid #24 AWG wires with the insulation stripped off both ends.

See this link to see how jumpers can be easily made:

If you want to make your own DuPont connectors see:

FYI, since you are starting out, look through the many ideas mentioned here:

Thanks, man I'm gonna get some male to male jumpers. If I require male to female, I'll join the male to male to the female to female. Thank you so so much :)
P.S. how to get this karma points?
