Hello there mE :-)

First, I wish you guys a happy new year, and I hope that you guys enjoyed your off days, they are very well deserved :D

You've been improving a lot, and specifically in the Click boards department lately :D

I really enjoy using them, but not when they contain a zero ohm resistor that works as a switch.
It could possibly be used to determine which voltage level to be used (3.3 volts or 5 volts), or some other type of switching.

Kindly, could you replace those with male headers pointing upwards, and a female to female connector?
That would make life so much easier by making click boards work right out of the box, instead of having to perform a desolder and resolder action.

Best wishes for 2018. You guys are the best :-)

I strongly agree with these suggestions. I regularly work with both 5V and 3.3V circuits and being able to select voltage with a jumper would be much more convenient.

Totally agree.

Hi,

Thank you again for the suggestion,
I understand that it would be very useful.
I have forwarded to our developers to take in consideration.

Best Regards,
