    Using the molex connector with iBlaast

    Need a little help with connecting the batteries and charger I have to the molex connectors that came with my iBlaast. The molex connector accepts pins. Should I solder the wires to the pins? Do I just crimp the pins? Do I need a special tool to do this correctly or can I just use pliers? Thanks.

    I did a little dab of solder just to make sure they wouldn't pull out, but if you crimped them well enough, I'm sure they'd hold fine. Plyers will work ok, you just have to manipulate them a bit more than using a proper crimping tool.

    Solder and crimp

    I used molex connectors on my DIY pond scum and soldered the wires to the connectors (just a small amount of solder to hold the wire on) and than crimped them. You can use any type of pliers for the crimping.
