After getting my gen 6 electronics and my Nema 17s I found out that the little plastic connectors are really expensive, it has cos me around £10 just on molex type connectors, pin and postage.
I have been searching the internet looking for the power connector that the Gen6 board uses but can't work it out, please does anyone know where I can buy one of these female power connectors (preferably from the UK) so I can rig my power adapter up to the Gen6 board?

This is what is should look like.

If you have trouble finding this specific connector, why not solder some wires directly to the board? Then you can add a cheap connector of your own choice the wires, if you so please.

If that's all you're buying, it's the shipping that will bump the price up.
