Solder each header into the Digispark, black plastic on top, solder from the bottom.


The Digispark Pro looks like this.

If you'd like to use your Digispark with a breadboard you can cut 6 and 2 pin lengths of male headers (included for Kickstarters and Pre-orders) insert the 6 pin into the corresponding header and the 2 pin into the 5v and GND portion of the 3 pin female header. Flip the Digispark upside down and it should plug into most breadboards with the 5v and GND being connected into the power bus.
