This is a 2-pin JST RCY connector typically used for low-voltage applications running 3A or less. They are commonly found in RC vehicles. These come in a bag of 1 male plug, 1 female plug, plus pins to connect them both. The pins crimp to your cable and are inserted into the housing.
The JST RCY connector is used for RC LiPo batteries. You will need some wire, wire strippers, and crimping pliers to crimp the pins for the JST RCY connector. For more information on how to crimp the pins, how to use the crimp pliers, inserting pins into the housing, removing pins from the housing, and explanation of the standard polarity for battery power, check out the following video from John Salt.
