I've disassembled this USB camera and I had to cut a wire. I'd like a small male / female connector pair to put it back together.

  • Frayed wire (right) is connected to the black plug (right/bottom) in the second photo. I would like to know the name of this male + female / polarized connector. This connects to a USB 3 plug.

  • White plug (left) is connected to the white plug (left/top) in the second photo. I don't need to replace this but I would still like to know what it's called. This connects to a servo motor.


On the frayed wire it's using a two row (2x3) connector but there are only 5 wires. I assume the 6th wire is the protective wrap around the outside of the wires?

    \$\begingroup\$ White = JST connector - probably 2mm pitch. But you will need to do some measurements. \$\endgroup\$ Jun 24, 2016 at 0:40

  • \$\begingroup\$ I picked up a set of 2-5 pin JST connectors and those work fine but I didn't find anything like the black connector. For now I'm just going to use a 2 pin + 4 pin for the 6 pin connector. Hopefully someone will come along with info on the 6 pin in my photo. \$\endgroup\$

1 Answer 1


White Connector

2 pin JST-XHP Connector

Black Connector

Double Row 6 pin Servo Connector (There's likely a much better name than this)


There's this list of connectors for small gauge wires

    \$\begingroup\$ "JST" isn't enough to identify it. Even the most common "JST" connectors come in two different types. \$\endgroup\$ Jun 30, 2016 at 2:50
