    Hi All,

    I am hoping that someone can help me. I am not electronics expert by any stretch of the imagination but I do love trying out new gadgets etc.

    I have recently purchase an MP3 module from Deal Extreme, and although it does the job perfectly that I purchased it for, I am having a problem.

    I can't find the correct connectors for the power connector (Red connector) and the audio out connector (white connector) there is also an audio in connector but I do not intend to use this at this time. The internal measurements are (approx) 4mm for the Power connector and 6mm for the audio connectors. See attached picture.

    Can anyone identify what I should be looking for and more importantly tell me where I might be able to purchase them.

    Thanks for any help given.

    Google or Ebay 'jst connectors' and find some the correct size with the appropriate pin pitch... Calipers or a nice machinist steel rule will help getting better measurements of the pin pitch and connector size...

    Coca-Cola, thanks to you help, I think I have found the correct connectors on e-bay, the shape and size seem right and they are very cheap aswell so not a lot lost if they are not the correct ones.

    I appreciate your help, I knew it would be just a matter of knowing what they are called. :)

    Thanks for that link, after looking at the JST website, I am even more sure I have ordered the correct connectors for my product.;)
