Head'em Up !

Finding pre-soldered headers turns out to be a big issue for non-header-solderers such as myself. Does anyone ask themselves how the Arduino got to be so popular ? Pre-soldered headers is part of the answer.

Teensy 3.2

... Also, it can provide system voltage of 3.3V to other devices at up to 100mA. ...

... 256K Flash Memory, 64K RAM

But no pre-soldered headers

... and it comes with pins so no soldering is required!

Headers or No Headers? Some surprising findings about a recent product release ...

... The Photon with headers outsold Photon without headers 513 to 177 ...

About what I would have guessed. Any lightbulbs coming on in the marketing department ?

Update Dec 2017: With Headers !

Teensy 3.6 (Headers)

... Each Teensy 3.6 comes with headers already attached ...

The Teensy 3.6 (as well as its sibling, the Teensy 3.5) is larger, faster and capable of more complex projects, especially with its onboard microSD card port. An upgraded ARM Cortex MCU (180MHz from 72MHz), more memory (1M from 256K)—as well as more RAM, EEPROM and accessible pins ...

$33.25 for the 3.6, $29 for the 3.5; both are a very capable little microcontrollers.

... About 35 mA [@5V], plus current for anything Teensy is driving, like more LEDs if you've connected any.

See RaspberryPi#RPiZeroW, which looks almost power-hungry in comparison ( 100ma@5V ).
