- JST cable has a wide variety of wire-to-board and wire-to-wire style connectors for your battery connections.
- However, years of misinformation make identifying the correct JST plug connector and JST connector kit to use extremely difficult. For example, JST is the acronym of a company rather than an industry specification.
- Japan Solderless Terminals (JST) Manufacturing Company is the leader in electrical cable connectors worldwide. Such is their prowess that their initials are synonymous with any white electric compact connector.

As earlier mentioned, identifying the correct JST connector kit and JST plug connector can be tricky. For example, you will find the Molex PicoBlade connector selling as the 1.25mm JST GH series connector. There are plenty of service providers purporting to offer JST low-profile connector and side-entry connector cable solutions. However, you need to be vigilant of their legitimacy. Cloom is your reliable source for all information on inventory, pricing, and datasheets for every JST plug connector and JST connector kit you desire.
Regardless of your device, there is a JST cable connector ready to do the job. For example, the JST SM 2 pin connector works excellent for LED light strips. Cloom offers you various custom cable assembly and wire harness solutions to ensure you get it right the first time. You can find more information on our JST cable Assembly services below.
Exact connector series of JST connectors
You can use the WPJ series for all your non-submersion and extreme moisture applications.
The ZE series is a wire-to-board crimp style connector that features a secure locking device to ensure connector-mating integrity.
ZPD series connectors
The wire-to-board, double row, crimp style connector incorporates secure locking devices that prevent accidental disconnects due to vibrations or wire routing.
ADH Series Wire-to-board connectors
The ADH series connectors allow for the placement of their header anywhere on your PCB. Consequently, you need not worry about any mating concerns.
PND Series connector
These connectors can accommodate wire sizes of 22 to 28 AWG with ratings of 3 amperes. You can avail of them from 8 to 40 positions on your PC board.
PNI Series Connector
You can use these crimp-style connectors for both wire-to-wire and wire-to-board applications with a 2 mm pitch.
KR Series Wire-to-Board IDC connector
You can use these connectors for your entire Blu Ray disc, game consoles, and communication equipment. They are compatible with the PH series SMT and through-hole connectors.
PH series wire-to-board Crimp style connectors
With the PH series, you have an easy way to assemble the friction-lock system. It is ideal for a variety of applications, including radio control battery pack connections.
KRD Series wire-to-board IDC daisy-chain connectors.
These low-profile, stain-resistant connectors work well in areas that require a small pitch daisy chain connection.
JWPF Series Waterproof Connectors
These wire-to-board and wire-to-wire connectors feature tin-plated contacts with a rating of up to 3 amperes.
VL Connector series
You can use these crimp-style connectors for all your wire-to-board or wire-to-wire connections.
SFH wire-to-board connectors
The SFH series of connectors are best for wire-to-board installations that require low voltage and low current conditions.
Although most of the JST connectors cannot withstand the high temperatures of soldering, you can still use wave soldering to secure them in place.
Some JST surface mount headers can withstand the high temperatures of reflow soldering.
Connector confusion on the Internet
When looking for a connector, it is advisable to use the J.S.T Co. website to check for the specifications and authenticity of the connector you desire. For example, you will find most 2.50mm connectors selling as 2.54 mm with a different manufacturer name.
How to tell Male JST Connector vs. Female JST Connector
A female pin header connector has one or more holes within a recess. The connector plug male has appendages with exposed conductors that can insert into the female connector.

Frequently Asked Questions
You can always use the Knipex set of crimping tools to attach your JST connectors. They come in a variety of sizes allowing you to use all types of wires. Additionally, it works for both plug connector male and female.
Tinning your wires will make it easier to attach the connector. You can use tweezers to handle the wire while soldering.
You do not need a crimping tool for the JST SM connector. Furthermore, it features a high contact pressure and secure lock mechanism that does not require you to use any tools to secure the contacts. Additionally, they are part of the JST series of disconnectable connectors.
The PH series of JST connectors go by different names depending on the retailer. Here is an explanation on the naming of JST-PH2 connectors:
- JST is the manufacturer’s name.
- PH refers to one of the connector series that the manufacturer makes.
- The number 2 is in reference to the pitch at which it connects to a PCB.
No. JST also manufactures a series of memory connectors for computers, media, and telecommunications devices. For example, the SCZW series is what allows you to use a Nano SIM in your smartphone.
Top-entry connectors and side-entry connectors are the two types of vacuum connections. The top entry connector is a connection that goes on top like how you would think it should, while the bottom one has to be inverted so as not to interfere with your hose’s suction when pulling out dust or debris from cracks around baseboards for example. Side entries come in handy if there isn’t enough space at either end of an opening because they can go along any edge and get into tight spaces without having to disassemble anything first!
