I think Pico should give these out free to all the people that bought as automotive kit this year, :) I wonder if they are silicon

It has to be said that, this has never been a stumbling block for me.

My Pico 4 channel kit (supplied back in 2007) came with some coloured markers, that could be attached to each lead for convenient assigning.

After a while I did find it effective to mark each lead with some coloured tape.

The thing with having a lead dedicated to channel A, is that it will run it's life cycle before the other leads. So maybe it is wise to rotate them?

If you have coloured leads, then maybe you would be less inclined to rotate them?

Like I said previously, the colour of the basic leads, supplied by Pico has never presented a problem.

The choice is yours :wink:

Its not a real problem for me,my kit did come with the coloured markers and they are all fixed on, its just ive got used to using coloured leads as all the scopes Ive had before had them they all had the red lead for channel A, I know you change the colours of the channels on the Pico but Im going to leave it as it is and I'll just have to get used to it
