I don't have a picture, it's not something I have done, but the idea is just to cut a part of the white connector (JST-XH), so you cant fit the 4S or more equivalent. Be careful though because you will only be using the first 3 cells of your battery pack in this configuration.
I've looked into this further since this morning, and I believe doing it this way, or even the way I suggested above, would overload the LEDs I planned to power. I think the best route for me to take would be a BEC since I'm running a 4s battery.
JST polarity comes opposite to what it should be! Don't assume every connection factory-made are correct. Killed a couple of strips of LEDs with this distribution lead :(
( thus low in quality )
Other than the wrong polarity, it is a handy cable to supply power to LEDs or other application.
( thus not bad on value )
nice if you need a tidied up power distribution for several individual leds or sets - although i prefer the multi remote switch www.link for the blinker of me and my little sibling's truck. What i am thinking of using this for is for a power supply switch which switches between batteries (controlled by a micro processor). but i'm not sure yet, if it all works as expected. Shall be some kind of redundancy for a critical Quadcopter Application.
These are great!. I hated soldering JST wires to my power cables, Now I don't have to. If you want to use them on bigger or smaller batteries just get the corresponding balance connector and solder it on in place of the one that it comes with. Just remember not to reverse polarity when replacing connector and these only tap off one cell so your LED's may not be as bright as if you hooked them up to your power cable.

WARNING! These connectors are wired wrong. I ordered 3 of these and all of the 4 JST connectors were wired in reverse polarity. I wasn't paying enough attention when testing a LED strip controller and burned up the wires on my 40amp ESC. You can correct this by using a paper clip or something very small and push down on the tiny metal tab on the pin in the JST connector and pulling on the wire and the pin will pull out of the connector. Make sure to bend the tab back up before you put it back in the correct position in the connector as this is what locks it in the connector.
