      I’m looking for another solution for connecting bare wire sensors to the Mayfly. Seems like the common approaches are using a screw terminal to Grove adapter and a Grove cable, or cutting a Grove cable and splicing it to the sensor wires.

      Finding 2 pin JST-PH plugs and pins is easy, and allows for custom solar and battery wiring, but I’ve only been able to find Grove plugs and pins from a single vendor in Germany with expensive shipping to the US. Are there any other sources for the plugs that are on the Grove cables? To clarify, I’m not looking for the commonly available female Grove headers, but the plugs and pins that mate with the headers.

      I would be interested to know if anyone can find these and will keep an eye on this thread.

      I have not been able to easily find them and have resorted to cutting them off the ready-made cables when needed:
      (ex. https://www.robotshop.com/en/grove-universal-4-pin-unbuckled-20cm-cable-5-pack.html)
      Fairly cheap until you start adding up shipping costs.
