Default where to buy female pins

Hello All,

quick question for you all, where can I find them cheap, the pin connectors we use for battery, servo, extensions, etx. looking for just the gold plated female pins alone, not the plastic parts.


thanks

Dont know anyone who sells seperate, but Dymond sells the connector sets so cheap, (10 sets for $5) you can't miss. And the pins are gold plated too.

DigiKey sells 2.5mm break away headers, you can get them gold, or tin plated. They're pins only and they come in long strips that you can break off to any number of pins (3 in this case) They're very cheap, but digikey has a minimum order. They're the same style pins you see used on PC's as jumper connectors (or even IDE drive connectors) the spacing is the same as R/C connectors.

Lynx, you're getting your genders mixed up the strip headers are male....but digikey does sell the female SOCKETS too.

these normally come in long strips and can be cut. some have the metal socket removable, some don't. at my local electronics shop i buy ones with nice gold plated sockets and nickel plated solder tails. great for servo extensions and battery leads

That would probably because flytime said female pin connectors =) It just threw me. Female connectors are sockets, not pins =) and digikey sells those as well.
