If I had a suggestion, it would be to redesign them so you don't need to bend the power pins to mount on a 0.10 inch perfboard.
Having the LED to confirm power is a nice touch. So far, I've bought 15 and used a dozen of these breakout boards with no failures.
Update 2: I got these working finally. Make sure you plug this into 5V, I was testing with the 3.3V power pin because I had another module that needed the 5V pin. These breakout adapters don't compensate for lower voltage, so make sure you give them the full 5V. My Arduino is now recognizing the antennas just fine! Thank you!
Update 1: I’m currently talking to the seller about this (they contacted me) and hopefully I can get them working.
Original: Was trying to use this with and Arduino and the MakerFocus NRF24L01+PA+LNA RF antenna. My Arduino couldn't find the radio antennas when I was using these breakout adapters.
I'll investigate further to see if I can fix it but for now they're basically dead to me.
As some of you may know, people have had power delivery problems with the nRF24L01+. Some of the Ardunio boards can not supply enough peak power to both the high and low power units which can cause a whole array of issues (or sometines even causing the nRF24L01+ to not work at all). These adapters solve those issues.
These Makerfocus nRF24L01+ adapters also allow you to swap out radio units quickly without having to remember what pins go to what inputs/outputs, which is a great feature/ perk when using these.
I highly recommend these units if you are working with the nRF24L01+.
Edit: I've added 2 stars to my review, i still feel the boards are unnecessary however the sellers have excellent customer service and actually emailed me and offered to replace the dead boards, which i find very impressive in this day and age.
If you are trying to improve the performance of your NRF24L01 by adding a capacitor or two different kinds of capacitors, etc... all that is built into this unit
also if you want to use NRF with arduino pro micro, its a must since then you can connect this breakout board straight to your Vcc (5V)

I actually desoldered the 6 male dupont pins, and soldered my wires directly to the holes in the board. I'm terrible at soldering wires to pins, and I don't (yet) have a kit to attach dupont headers to the ends of wires... so soldering my wires directly to the board seemed the easiest option for me.
