Where to buy JST SH connectors in bulk?

Where to buy JST SH connectors in bulk?
« on: October 12, 2015, 10:01:05 PM »
I'm searching for a good place to purchase the correct JST SH connectors.

I'm looking for the size that can be plugged into the TinyDuino main board.  It seems that I'm having trouble ensuring that I am getting the correct size.

Is this the correct connector? https://www.sparkfun.com/products/retired/10357

If anyone has a link to a DigiKey or Mouser item, I would greatly appreciate it as well.

TIA!

That's it. They're available from China at a low cost- http://www.ebay.com/itm/20-SETS-Mini-Micro-SH-1-0-2-Pin-JST-Connector-with-Wires-Cables-100MM-/231580552094

I haven't tried these particular connectors, but they should be fine.

The housings/contacts are easy to find on digikey/mouser, but my Engineer PA-09 that do well on other small connectors are useless for these, so you probably need the real JST crimp tool to do more than a few.
