Connector types

Hi I have had some problem with the connector/wire on the fan and servo…The wire is broken close to the connector and I need to replace the connectors. I am living in Norway and hope someone knows the type of connectors so I can buy it here…

Hi @etoivy :slight_smile: . The connector on the fan looks similar to the JST on the long led. Check out @alexpikkert’s investigations on the long led :arrow_left:.

Alex also shared pics on how he repaired a broken connection on the vibration motor.

For more chats on this topic, click on the magnifying lens and type JST. As always, you are welcome to contact support@littleBits.cc about any trouble you are having with a Bit.

Hi Ivar @etoivv and Jude @JackANDJude,

Indeed the connector from the o13 fan is the same as the connector from the long led. I purchased new connectors including 10cm. wiring at kiwi electronics in the Netherlands, see here:
(they can sell abroad to Norway, no problem)

For the servo you will need a 3-pin JST connector, I think (not sure) it might be this one:

Hi again I was happy to repair the 2 wire connector but now I have a problem with a 3 wire connecor. . It seems that it is not the connector Alex proposed.
Does anyone know the type and an European supplier?
Thanks so far Alex!

Hi Ivar @etoivv ,

It is a connector from Sparkfun, make JST. I cannot find the exact model. But you can buy the W1 wire bit from Kiwi electronics in the Netherlands, see

Purchase a single wire or purchase a multi-pack and save!

Thanks a lot for your hjelp
