I'm trying to buy these recently stocked connectors from Sparkfun from either Farnell or Digikey, but have no idea what they are called or how to find them. Also, what about the female connector that mates to this? And would I be easily (without an expensive tool) be able to crimp connectors for this series of connectors?
This type of connector is known as "wafer connectors" or "PCB SMT connector" or "Conn Header".
My suggestion for a search on google for a similar product: conn header 2pos 1mm right angle
Are 1.0mm pitch terminals easy to crimp? No.
Having bought some 1mm crimp connectors in the past thinking "that's huge" (in soldering pitch terms), I soon regretted it after having crimped 30. In later projects when I needed a bunch of low-current connections I used FFCs.
If you only have two crimps to make, it might be worth a shot, though if you can find pre-crimped pigtails, I would jump on that.
