Premium Jumper Wires
These premium 26 AWG stranded jumper wires are equivalent to our wires with pre-crimped terminals with 1×1 crimp connector housings already attached, and they are great for making quick and easy prototyping connections. The stranded 26-awg wires are available in five lengths—1″ (2.5 cm), 2″ (5 cm), 3″ (7.5 cm), 6″ (15 cm) and 12″ (30 cm)—and up to ten colors:
These are the same colors as those used on resistor color codes and rainbow ribbon cable. The available color options and pack sizes depend on the wire length:
|length||single-color pack quantity||multi-color pack quantity|
|1″ (2.5 cm)||10 (six colors available)||60 (10 each of six colors)|
|2″ (5 cm)||10 (six colors available)||60 (10 each of six colors)|
|3″ (7.5 cm)||10 (six colors available)||50 (5 each of ten colors)|
|6″ (15 cm)||10 (ten colors available)||50 (5 each of ten colors)|
|12″ (30 cm)||10 (ten colors available)||50 (5 each of ten colors)|
The single-color packs of the 1″, 2″, and 3″ wires are only available in six colors (black, red, yellow, green, blue, and white), while the single-color packs for the 6″ and 12″ wires are available in all ten colors. The multi-color packs of the 1″ and 2″ wires have ten each of six colors (black, red, yellow, green, blue, and white); the multi-color packs for all of the other wire lengths, including 3″, have five each of all ten colors.
These wires can be purchased with male terminations on both ends (M-M), female terminations on both ends (F-F), or one male and one female termination (M-F). These terminations are designed for use with 0.1″ (2.54 mm) male headers and female headers, solderless breadboards, and prototyping PCBs. Close-up pictures of the male and female terminations are shown below.

For versions of these wires without housings, see our wires with pre-crimped terminals, which can be used with our crimp connector housings to make custom multi-conductor cables or longer premium jumper wires. These versions are available in lengths of 1″, 2″, 3″, 6″, 12″, 24″, 36″, and 60″.
