The resistors mentioned in the video might be different to the ones in your Kit. Rest assured, some components may look different on the outside, but they do share the same values on the inside. Promise!

The resistor in the video has a FOUR band colour code with a cream coloured body

Some of you might have resistors with a FIVE band colour code with a blue body

There are no technical differences other than the colouring schemes.
