Not tested yet, but nothing exciting there.

I used a 6 pin header, pulled off the sixtht straight pin and put in a rectangular one, which is soldered to the next available ground.

Sweet. Just need to get 0.1" standard sized terminals instead of 0.2" terminals.

 

im pretty sure these are the standard size for screw terminals, the 0.1" ones are expensive as. but i would get them if they were cheaper, id love a launchpad with them instead of male/female headers

How cheap is cheap? 2.50 for a 10pole, .59 cents for a 5pole? Let me know, ill share a secret tomorrow.

(TE/Amp "282834" Arrow has free shipping, Digikey and Mouser have them too, and they come in 2pole to 12pole. Prices vary alot, but so does in-stock quantities. Arrow is out of the 2pole and at 17 cents a piece ARG and the 5pole at 57 cents. Digikey has the 2pole at 48 cents., etc.)
