I am looking for a new connector. I have a very small board (Around 0.5 sq in) that I have 2 5 pin connectors on. Currently I am using the JST GH (1.25mm pitch) Series (Digikey PN: 455-1595-ND), but the crimp on the wire seems flimsy and prone to breaking. I've so far been epoxying the wire to the connector after sliding in the pins, but I would like to find something more reliable that doesn't involve epoxy. The footprint is 6mmx10mm, and I'd like to find something about the same size. Can anyone recommend another connector series that they have had good results with? The connection will not be plugged and unplugged a lot, just occasionally if I need to disassemble the device.
Due to the constraints of the project, I need to continue using the same cable I have been, which means I need to crimp the connection unless there is a shielded cable available premade for it.
