I know.

That was unfortunately a very long post

Still haven't got around to mastering how to post photos.

Some of you seem to like the Pololu boosters,
to ensure a steady voltage to the engine,
so I got me some. 

They come with some right angle header pins,
and the solder points are spaced the same as the JST connector on my batteries.
Sooo... I made a connector out of that little board. 

This would not have done me any good on the little blue engine,
on which I carved out a spot for the connector,
but for my third conversion it works just fine.

It's not as smooth as I would like,
but it disconnects without too much tugging. 

The JST plug on my batteries will only go on one way,
so the polarization issue is taken care of. 

I put a piece of heat shrink on the little board,
to protect its stuff on the other side.
