    i was wondering this because i have run out of space on my current breadboard and nobody here carries one larger than what i have. Do i have to have two power sources or can one 9v battery power both if i can connect two? thanks.

    It really depends on how much current you plan to draw from the battery. But yeah, you can definitely tie two breadboards together with a 'jumper'. In the picture below, note how the source rails and ground rails are wired together at the top left of the board. Hope that helps!
