I'm trying to identify this connector. I suspect it is some kind of Molex connector, but I can't figure out which one.

Here are 2 pics I've taken.

Currently it is attached to a micro-usb plug at the other end, but I want to switch it to a new lightning connector.

Any help identifying it, or if anyone knows what kind of crimping tool I'd need to make this work, that would be great too.

You do know that the lightning connectors have a security chip embedded in them, right? If you're trying to use this to charge your iDevice, it won't work unless iOS believes your security chip is legit! –  Brutick Nov 21 '12 at 20:50
    
Yes, I do, but I think it is in the 9pin end. So if I buy one, and cut off the USB end, I should be OK. As long as I can track down this connector! –  McB Nov 21 '12 at 21:15

try KK family molex. looks about right to me.

4 pin IDC also comes up in my searching, but i think that's a connector type rather than a product per se.

Thanks for the suggestions. My connector only has 4 wires, the KK family looks to have 6. –  McB Nov 21 '12 at 20:21
    
ah. that figures with the results i was getting for IDC. Nice to know, thanks ! Kin dof bugging me because i've seen these connectors used also, but i can't remember where it was I saw it to look it up. –  Sirex Nov 21 '12 at 20:22
    
"4 pin SMD" also looks pretty likely. tinyosshop.com/index.php?route=product/… –  Sirex Nov 21 '12 at 20:27
