I'm looking for a 5-pin wire-to-wire connector for an LED strip project. It'll make installation easier if I can plug my LED strip into the electronics box after it's in place. I'm going down a rabbit hole looking at the billions of different connector types and I'm just not sure what I'm looking for anymore. I was thinking along the lines of something like this, but I'm not sure it's the right way to go.

My requirements are fairly simple. I'd like to make the connectors myself (crimping, soldering, or other). It needs to accept 5 (18awg) wires and be able to handle 5A.

I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction and share their wisdom with me.

You could probably do a lot worse than the 6pin connectors used for PCI Express Power Delivery to graphics cards.  Volume should make them relatively cheap, and easy to find.  Good for up to 8A per pin.

Go to an auto parts store and look at the assortment of TRAILER CONNECTORS. They range from 3 to 7 or 8  pins and will accept 18 AWG wire easily. There are some with crimp and also some that can be soldered !! Hope this helps !! Tom
