Building a device that clips to your belt and tracks how much time you spend inside and outside


Step 5: Solder leads to accelerometer

Picture of Solder leads to accelerometer
I chose to solder 90-degree leads to the accelerometer instead of directly soldering wires to the device. The layout within the case will be such that the accelerometer will have more free space around it.  Leads also allow for easy integration with a breadboard if I decide to use the accelerometer in a future project.  Thus I will essentially have a plug-and-play accelerometer with the help of a few wire with female connectors on one end.
