    Useable Bananna clip-leads

    posted by FakeName on 10/26/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    For the price, they're excellent. It's not made clear in the images, but each pair (red and black) is made of "zip" cable, so the two leads are connected. You can peel them apart if you want, but it's nice as each lead pair stays together.

    Very nice little L298 board

    posted by FakeName on 10/26/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This is a very nice little L298 carrier board. It has (very bright) red status LEDs for the 4 inputs, as well as jumper-enable-able pull-up resistors on the inputs.
    Cons:
