What kind of jumper wires should I get for electronics and a breadboard? There are female to female, male to female, female to female with headers. I don't know what to get. Just hookup wire?
The standard solid strand breadboards wires are nice when making a nice clean circuit however they break quickly: http://tinyurl.com/z482nme
These are really nice in that they are made out of stranded wire with molded ends. They rarely break and are really easy to work with however they make a circuit messy fast: http://tinyurl.com/ha94t8e
Female/Female aren't very common. You mostly needs these for connecting male header pins on breakout boards not necesarrily bread boards but they are still nice to have around: http://tinyurl.com/jhwwkpa
My advice is to buy all 3 of the above. It may look like a lot but it doesn't take long for them to get lost, melted, broken, etc.
