    I need to place an order for .100 crimp contacts. I usually get the 4amp phosphor bronze plated crimps from Great Plains Electronics but he's been out for a while now. I am going to place an order with Big Daddy for some stuff. The only ones I see on his site are tin plated brass which GPE's site shows are rated for 2.5 amps. Is 2.5 amps enough to use anywhere on a Bally solid state game or do I need to find someplace that has the 4amp crimps?

    I do not know your answer. But if you email the guys at www.arcadepartsandrepair.com you will get a prompt answer. And he will have everything you want/need for sale as well.

    Most of the time, .100 connectors don't supply power anyway. I don't think it would be an issue.

    Thanks for the link! I ordered 300 and with shipping it was 21 cents cheaper than the 2.5 amp contacts at Big Daddy w/o shipping.

    I'm looking for the answer to this question as well. Doesn't look like there was a definitive answer here.

    So, does the amp rating matter on these .100 22-26 crimp contacts? One is 2.5 amps and the other 4 amps.

    The amp rating required really depends on where you are using it, when in doubt use the higher rated part.

    Mostly older solid state games, repinning all connectors on MPU, SDB, Sound board, light boards, etc.

    When would you need the higher amp rating?

    Well dang, can't place orders on GPE right now anyway. Seems like every time I try to buy something the checkout feature is disabled.

    Yeah -- broke my foot a week ago. Hobbling around this week still, can't really fill orders again until I can get around a bit better.
    Incidentally - the 2.5 amp 08-50-0114 contacts from Molex are now obsolete. Only non-spooled ones available from Molex now are 08-52-0123.
