    Fits into a breadboard without mangling the legs

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    These fit very easily into a breadboard, although perhaps not as snugly as other components. They're a nice change of pace from the usual adjustable resistors.
