Arcing can also damage a breadboard. Whether from excessive voltage or current, damaged breadboard contacts can’t be used reliably — and can’t be repaired. A good rule of thumb is to limit breadboards to circuits that use a maximum of 100 mA and 50 V. If your circuit uses higher currents and voltages, it’s a good idea to change your building methods or construct a separate circuit that only makes low-current connections to the breadboard circuit.
