I am a newbie. I recently received a board with 2.54mm(pitch and spacing) male pin header 2x10. On the male pins there was pololu.com/product/1029 (2x10 version) one of these, I am guessing I am supposed to solder wires to male pins sticking out, but the pins are pretty fine and tightly space, it seems like a challenge to accurately solder in there, especially in the middle rows.
Which is superior, crimping and using pololu.com/product/1917 this, or the idea previously mentioned?
Usually, I’ve simply put wires through the holes on a board and soldered that, new ideas to myself. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a 2-3 camp idea that has been argued to death on the pros and cons and I have simply failed at finding them. I’d be happy to read those discussions if they exist.
I am sure I could easily desolder the 2x10 male header and fix the pins straight to the board, but I kind of like the idea of using using connections.
