ESP8266-01 Bread Board Adapter Version 2

I have been playing with the ESP8266 modules again and had made a small adaptor to enable me to use the ESP8266 on a breadboard. It soon became apparent the adaptor was not the best design as it blocked access to some of the rear connections. This lead me to version 2.

The adaptor is very simple, just 2 rows of sockets connected to the pins at the bottom but is far more convenient than the previous version. The wires are single core wire wrap wire which I find ideal for this kind of thing.

The old version. Harder to make and not as good.

Here is the new adaptor with the ESP8266 in place and also on a breadboard.
