KEY FEATURES OF 270 OHM 1/4W 5% RESISTORS:
These are carbon film axial leaded through hole type and can handle up to 1/4W of power at voltages up to 350V. 1/4W resistors are the most commonly used size for breadboarding.
We offer this particular line of resistors specifically for breadboarding because they have easy to read color-coding on a tan (5%) background so you don’t have to keep dragging out the multimeter to figure out values.
In addition the leads are very stout with a 0.55 mm diameter constructed of tin and copper plated over steel wire, so they hold up well with repeated insertions into solderless breadboards. No more trying to use needle nose pliers to get the resistor leads to insert into the breadboard. The larger leads also grip better in the contacts.
Because the leads are strong, these resistors can also be useful when sky-wiring a project.
270 ohm is a common LED current limiting resistor value.
