connector

Post by panserv »

For some time now, while messing with an Astro Saber accessory connector, I have had to make do with a piece of board with soldered-on tiny strips of copper.
One can buy programming lead off Ebay, but these have just 2 pins .
Does anyone know where to buy spare pins or all full pin connectors ?

thanks !

I have never had to work with the Saber connector, but have modified a few of the XTS connectors. What I have done is to take a speaker mic connector apart and move the pins around to where I wanted them. If I needed more pins, I just took a second speaker mic and pulled those pins to get what I needed.

You may be able to do the same thing with the Saber speaker mic connectors.
