    I did have a catalogue number for this connector a few years ago but I'm not sure if I kept a record of it, will try to dig it up over the next couple of days. I remember it did take a while to find it.

    If you try an electronics component shop (eg Aztronics) they may have something compatible.

        After considerable rummaging, I found some information.

        It is a JST (Japan Solderless Terminals) XH 3 connector:

        J.S.T. Mfg. Co., Ltd.

        and pictured here:

        Connector/Adaptor: 3 Pin Female JST(XH) connector

        Often used in battery packs and chargers, and by hobbyists.

        I had a couple of spares (now gone) that I purchased from a hobby shop in FNQ, but it has now closed.

        They can now be purchased from element 14 (was Farnells).

        Or try this place:

        PROLUX FEMALE JST EH TO MALE JST XH CONNECTOR SET. 2, 3 & 4 CELL - Model Engines

        which seems to be a distributor, and may be able to suggest a retailer close by where you could get one.

        If you have trouble getting one quickly, I could pull the connector of my to-be-repaired-one-day iRoast out the back and send it to you, and you could replace it when you do track one down.

        Let's know how it goes ....
