Molex Picoblade 1.25mm Pin Space Connectors and Leads

Plugs/Sockets | Battery Leads | Adapters

The Molex PicoBlade 1.25mm pin space 3 pin connector is used on Futaba, Walkera and DT Rx34d micro receivers. The 2 pin version of this connector is used as a single cell LiPo battery connection on E-flite and Parkzone micro models, Spektrum AR6400 and usually referred to as a 'UM' (Ultra Micro) connector.

Leads using this connector should be used with care: wires tend to be thin and the small grip area of the crimp will result in failure of the joint if excessive force is used to remove a connector. DO NOT tug on the wires to remove a plug, use tweezers to lever the connector shell out of the socket. For wiring information, see Micro Connection Wiring.

We can make lightweight servo leads using 32awg wire to the length you need - send us an email with length, type (e.g, extension lead, plug with bare ends, Y lead, ...) and quantity to get a price quotation.

1.25mm Solder Socket

A 5 pack of sockets compatible with the 1.25mm pin spacing plugs as used for:

2 pin:'UM' single cell LiPo
3 pin:servo connectors on Futaba micro rx and DT Rx34d

The sockets are intended for through-hole PCB mounting and will require solder attachment of leads. The pack contains some heatshrink tube for protecting the solder joints. The 32awg servo wire is ideal for making servo leads.

'UM' Battery Charge / Receiver Power Lead

A 75mm lead with socket which mates with the 1.25mm pin space connector on a 'UM' type single cell LiPo - e.g. Hyperion 70/100/130/160 mAh, Kyosho Minium and many others. Can be used: to replace the power lead on your AR6400; for charging; or for powering an ESC. Weight = 0.55g, wire diameter = 1.1mm, max current = 2A.

Also available with thinner 7/0.1mm wires for use in micro models where the standard 'UM' lead wires would be too large and with an inline 0.5A resettable fuse. Weight = 0.25g (0.35g with fuse), wire diameter = 0.7mm, max current = 0.5A.

'UM' Battery Lead

A 75mm lead with 2 pin 1.25mm pin space plug - the same as used on a 'UM' type single cell LiPo. Can be used for adapting a bare-lead single LiPo cell for use with UM receivers, e.g. AR6410, PKZ3352. If you need a lead to connect with a 'UM' battery (e.g. to power a receiver), then then the 'UM' Power Lead is probably what you are looking for.

Also available with thinner 7/0.1mm wires for use in micro models where the standard 'UM' lead wires would be too large. Max current for the thin wire is 0.5A.

If you are considering the 'UM' plug and socket battery connectors, but don't require compatibility with an existing receiver or battery, then we recommend using the 2 pin Molex 2mm as this is more robust and not much larger.

'UM' Battery Extension Lead, 75mm

A 75mm 'UM' battery extension lead to extend the reach of the standard battery cable on AR64x0, PKZ335x and PKZUA1151 receivers,

Other lengths are available to special order, please enquire.

'UM' Socket To Molex PicoBlade Servo Plug Lead (75mm)

A lead for powering receivers with Molex Picoblade sockets from a UM LiPo. The 75mm lead has a Molex Picoblade 2 pin socket (UM) at one end and a Molex Picoblade 3 pin plug at the other end.

'UM' Multiple Battery Charge Lead

An adapter lead to allow you to charge multiple 'UM' single cell LiPo - e.g. Vapor 70mAh or Blade mCX 110mAh LiPo cells on a standard LiPo charger. Two versions of the adapter are available with 2 or 3 LiPo sockets wired to a 2S or 3S JST-XH balance connector. Plug the JST-XH into your balancer or charger/balancer and the red/black charge leads into the charge ports, then connect your Vapor or Blade mCX batteries and charge them in series.

'UM' Battery Plug to MRC Adapter Cable

A short adapter lead to allow batteries with 'MBC' style 2 pin polarised connectors to be used with receivers that have a 'UM' type power socket (e.g. AR6400, PKZ3351. Lead length: 25mm; max current: 2A; weight 0.35g.

The MBC (Miniature Battery Connector) was/is used on single cell LiPo. The mating connector is MRC (Miniature Receiver Connector). They are polarised connectors with one protruding pin which is positive on MRC and negative on MBC.
