    I use leftover CD-ROM audio cables and solder on whatever battery holder is handy.
    If I remember correctly it's a standard 2.54mm pin spacing (0.1").

    I use FCI Mini-PV connectors, part # 65039-033LF when making up replacements. Those will accept crimp # 47217-000LF. Both are current production and available from Mouser, etc. Note that on the FCI crimps, the strain relief wraps around the wire, it doesn't get pinched down into it -- if you use cheap hand crimpers that try and pinch it down into the insulation, it'll often cut the wire off.

    They are indeed standard 0.1" spacing connectors, you can use a Molex KK-100 (KK-254) or anything else, in a pinch.

    Any recommendations for a suitable crimp tool? Would be handy if I could make those on the fly (and I'd have more CDROM audio cables spare).

    Genuine professional Molex crimp tools are stupid expensive. However, there are less expensive alternatives. Discussion here

    Well, this one's a FCI/Dupont/Amp/Berg (they've been bought and sold a few times ). Here's an excellent writeup on them:

    http://tech.mattmillman.com/info/cri...ectors/#minipv

    The author goes over not only the connector and the proper crimpers for the terminals, but also compares various cheap crimpers. Apparently no single cheap crimper will properly crimp a Mini-PV terminal, but you can make do with two different cheap ones. I personally have the older Dupont HT-213A, which was IIRC around $100 used.

    Hey, Jono, how many CD cables would you be looking for? I might have some extras.
