    Hi all,

    I want to replace my hexagon hotend, but I don't know which JST connectors to get. There is a C2 thread about dual extruders, but it only has one of the JST connectors specified. Can anyone tell me more?

    When I pull out the hotend, there are two sets of wires, one has smaller JST connectors than the other one.

    Thanks in advance!

    The small connector is the thermistor and it is a JST-PH connector the larger is the hotend heater and it is a JST-EH

    Sorry to necromance this thread, but I think this may be the other way around, @WheresWaldo? Isn't the JST-EH larger and higher current than the JST-PH?

    At least the JST-PH 2.0 connectors I bought seem to fit the thermistor sockets, rather than the heater ones.
