Default power wires different, what is the best method

Hi everyone
I have attached a photo to illustrate my problem.
I want to power my video transmitter and my OSD with a 1000mah battery, unfortunately the wires are all different sizes.

My concerns are this:
What is the best way to connect all three without losing or overpowering the system?
Which are the better connectors to go with?

Side Note: I have confidence concerns with the transmitter, the wires are sooo small, half the size of the feed coming from my gopro camera. I am I going to lose image quality? Should I break open the transmitter and increase the size of the wire?

any suggestions?
Thanks

I would not change the wires on the video transmitter. They are carrying very low power and thus are large enough for their intended purpose. If you have the adapter cable for the transmitter as shown [link=http://www.protectiondepot.com/800mW-900mhz-Transmitter.html]here[/link], I would use it.

I would leave all of the wires and connectors exactly as they are. Then make a "Y" adapter that accepts the battery on one leg and splits into two legs, one that accepts the power connector for the OSD and one that accepts the power connector for the video transmitter.
