They are made by JST or Japan
Solderless Terminal. I got mine from Newark:
Plug = JST - XHP-5 SKU# 74M5180
Terminals = JST - BXH-001T-P0.6 SKU# 73M9274
Buy plenty of extras because the shipping
will cost more than the product... You can also order the JST pre-made plugs from Hobby King but I find them pretty crappy with 7" leads that then need butt splices. I prefer to crimp and make my own harness and use slightly larger gauge wire.
The biggest issue, in making your own, is you will need a crimp tool that can crimp these very miniature JST terminals. Oh and your reading glasses too.
To crimp I used my Molex HTR-2262-A crimp tool but I am sure JST has a more specific
tool. My Molex made beautiful work of it but I have 40 some odd crimp tools to choose from so I just kept trying my small D-Sub tools until I found one that worked....
Please don't count on the Cell Log 8S to be accurate. IMHO it is a good at a glanc
e guide only. I own two of them and find them pretty inaccurate and they also tend to drift. I have countless hours trying to calibrate both of them to agree with my Flukes, or any other DVM for that matter, and they simply won't... Two bad ones in a row? Perhaps, but doubtful.... I suspect like most things inexpensive and Chinese I simply got what I paid for. Very cool product, just lacks accuracy...
