    So i am working on a project that needs a 7 wire connector, not big voltages or anything, just basically data, the most power that´ll be going through is 5v.

    soemthing like the old smasung cable would look good:

    but i dont know its name, anyway something that looks professional,

    so impress me oh and something not too expensive to buy, though I don´t see how it can be...
    thanks in advance!

    USB 3 has nine pins, connectors are cheap and compact.
    Any good?

    Oh. Well, have a look on Digi-Key and Mouser. They have a very large range. You could spend hours looking. (And I often do!)

    Fair point, I wouldn't do this if I was making lots, but if it's a one off and you use the connections in the same order i.e make the power and GND the same and ensure the PCB runs on 5 Volts it should be ok.
