JST balance connectors

Does anyone have experience crimping these suckers?

I just ordered a bunch and was wondering if they will crimp with a Molex or Amp crimping tool.

The controlled cycle JST crimp tool is over $420 (for the cheap one)

Re: JST balance connectors

I use needle nose pliers and a minute amount of solder after. It is anything like perfect but it works. Yes, the proper crimp tool is not cheap...

Re: JST balance connectors

I found this thread on JST connectors but they may not be the same as the JST that you have.


They claim you can use a crimper from the Source (Radio Shack)

There is a link to another supplier but no photos.
