Crimp Tool

This crimp tool is proven to work for the Molex KK clones listed below, using the 2.0mm crimp head. Will also be tested on the JST connectors when I have a chance - TBSliver (talk)

  • Molex Tool [1]

Connectors

JST

JST connectors are great for small motor connectors, and wiring boards to other boards. They're 2.54mm standard spacing, specced for 3A per terminal. They are commonly found on RC batteries acting as balance connectors.

Wire Side

Molex KK

Molex's KK series connectors are used for the same thing as JSTs. Fan connectors for PC mainboards use KK series. There is a Multicomp clone of them availabe on farnell for ~10p less per connector.

Wire-to-board housings

These are the connectors used inside computers and all over the place to connect to regular pin headers.
