    When I installed the Hella H1s I ordered from Susquehanna, I noticed that the white cover for the back of the housing has a strange connector style that I've never seen before. It's smaller than a normal 2-terminal high beam connector and has a "divider" between the terminals. I hunted around the local parts houses (before I deployed, duh) trying to find a matching connector, but no joy. Anyone know exactly what style of connector this is, and where I might be able to find a proper female connector for it so I'm not just using female spade connectors? Surprisingly, Susquehanna doesn't sell the proper female connector for it.

    Here's a pic from Susquehanna's web site:

    Female spade-type connectors would work - they come in wire sizes for different wattage ratings. I always crimp, solder, & insulate with shrink tube. Then I try the connector & squeeze it with needlenose pliers if it isn't really tight.

    That's what I ended up doing. I would just prefer to have the actual connector for them though if I can track one down. I just hate the half-assed look they have now...
