Mountable socket for Photon

I’m looking for a socket which I can solder to a board that the Particle Photon can be plugged into therefore allowing me to easily remove and replace it.

I’ve had a look online and have come across DIL sockets and wondered if that might work. The link below is an example of what I found,

Would the Photon fit this? Is there a better alternative?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You’re looking for something like this. I think the pitch is wrong on this one though, so make sure you check the pin on the photon and the one you’re looking at.

We have several recommended connectors in the Photon Datasheet:
