Using plugs

Plugs are a great way to make components easy to connect and disconnect. This can save a lot of time when assembling robots because it reduces work of undoing permanent connections in order to modify some parto of your project.

Here is a quick tip for robotics and electronics projects when using plugs.

Electronics tip:

Always connect the female plug (one with receptacles for the pins) to the battery side of the connection.

If you follow this method you help to prevent a short circuit if your connection ever comes unplugged. You also help to reduce the risk of electrocution if you are working high voltages.
