This is a 2-pin, through-hole PH series JST connector. The pins are spaced by 2mm.
We really like the solid locking feeling and high current rating on these small connectors. This connector will mate with all of our LiPo batteries.
This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.
Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

since there is no shell connections, there is no way you can hold this to a board other than soldering the two pins, you might have to try hot glue. other than that, its a good connector for li-po batteries
I used this with a two wire JST cable to feed 5 volts to my project. (The 5 volts was produced from the output of a Buck-Boost converter.) So this worked great on a Prototyping breadboard. Did you know that the pins will also fit the same footprint as an LED? The board I used had an LED pad, which I didn't need. So I put this connector there instead. Instead of an LED taking power, this fed power into the circuit. And Sparkfun has the matching two wire JST cable too.
