Just wanted to share the fact that some jumpers have no connection.

Wow - that's not good. :oops: Please email support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread to arrange for a replacement!

Hi driverblock,

Thank you for your support.
I followed your instructions, and Adafruit
already shipped the replacement jumpers.

Too bad I could not combine the RMA return with a new order as:

1) It would have reduced my shipping fees on my new order.
2) Adafruit would have used the material of only one parcel instead of
two parcels.

Paid by Adafruit:

Sub-Total: $6.95
Tax: $0.00
United States Postal Service (0.17lbs)
(First-Class Package International Service incl. $1.60 insurance):
Shipping: $9.95

Total: $16.90
