Y'all got any uses for 0 ohm resistors?

    Not even a standart cable is 0 ohm. Its a lie.

    @TheyCallMeMJ So you just short something out to light it? 😂

    If I'm not mistaken they're often used as conductors since you can use any other robot that can place normal resistors to place them.

    You can basically have infinite energy with real zero ohm something

    You can break mathematics with it. Current is Voltage / Resistance right? Place some Voltage between it. Congratulation, you're one step closer to the Fields medal

    So it's an overrated wire ?

    This is a thing?

    According to OP, yes @bashleigh

    It is 0 ohm! It has a powersource hidden inside. Bamm!

    @bashleigh Yes very much so. 😂 It came with a box full of 16 other values.

    CERN would probably kill for some of those.

    Thats some next level alien technology right there.

    i'd use them to make some led jewelery. As stylish elements.

    Does anyone know why THT versions of these exist? I get the SMD ones, but THT?

    They are used as @ScriptCoded said.

    They aren't zero (check superconductors for 0 Ohm), but their resistance is pretty small so they're called zero.

    A zero-ohm link or zero-ohm resistor is a wire link used to connect traces on a printed circuit board that is packaged in the same physical package format as a resistor.

    So it's like those drinks that are no *added* sugar they still have some sugar in but it's natural

    @ScriptCoded has it right. It's not some idiot thinking he's invented a room temperature superconductor! They're more useful in SMD form (since it's almost just as easy to use a piece of wire in thru-hole), but exist in thru-hole too.

    @Scade This also allows them to be specced out and replaced easily should the need arise for the resistance value to be increased at any time. If you'd have just used a piece of wire, then you may not have the physical space on the board to do so.

    @AlmondSauce Thank you :)

    If you use this in a LED Blink project, it will instantly make you look like a genius. Not to mention, using a bunch of these for the Bare Minimum project..mind blowing! 😜

    @hasu That sounds like a good idea. If only I had the time right now.

    @JohnScott same. I've got some bird wings in the freezer too waiting for crafty time..
