    Hello,

    This connector appears to be rated to 4A, but are we sure of this?

    Molex 22-11-2022 connector:-

    ...the worrying thing is that this header is for use with these crimps.................

    Crimps... (Molex 08-50-0113)

    ....and these tiny crimps certainly dont look capable of 4A.

    So would you say they are OK for 1.5A DC?

    No. They are rated at 3A max.

    These ones are rated at 7A. I use these for any of my mains connections
    They have a 3.96mm pitch:

    Yes.
