(We haven't been asked many questions yet but feel free to ask away on our forum, or comment at the bottom of this page if you have a question)
1: Why don't the wheels come with a cable?
For two related reasons, firstly it makes them more expensive, and secondly you may not want or need the cable that came with it - in which case you spent money on something you didn't need.
There are lots of ways to connect up HUB-ee wheels to a robot and you may find that you need an extra long cable, or that you want to run several wheels off a single cable in a chain.
For more information see our cables and connecting guides on the resources page.
2: Those Micro-MaTch connectors don't fit into an 0.1" strip board or breadboard. What can I do?
You can buy our break out board which breaks the Micro-MaTch connector into a single row of 0.1" holes - ideal for bread board prototyping.
If you can't get hold of a break out board you can use a standard IDC connector and crimp it onto the cable with a vice - You can then use standard 0.1" header pins (2 rows, 4 pins each) soldered to stripboard.
3: Why don't the wheels come with a break out board for the connectors?
