I'm looking for replacement neato battery connectors for experimentation purposes. Need both male and female. Does anyone know what connector they use? Part number or whatever info is needed to order some. Thanks.

[edit] later info from member Gordon: a matching connector is Molex part# 03-06-2042 data sheet http://www.molex.com/pdm_docs/sd/003062042_sd.pdf.
Available at Digi-Key (with low mailing rates for personal orders) and Mouser, for example, in various qualities tin vs gold etc. Neato omits the securing clamp.
More on properties of this connector at http://www.robotreviews.com/chat/viewtopic.php?p=121916#p121916
Also the pins only, from standard D-connectors, can be used in that the female D socket fits inside the receptacle on the battery side of the Neato connector, and stretches to fit over the plug pins on the Neato side. Available in Radio Shack (which does not have the needed size Molex connectors).

For the chassis mounting receptacle* (fit w/pins) Mouser Part# 538-03-06-2042
Use With Male Crimp Terminal Series: 1560 , 1786 , 1854, 1778.

[edit]removal tool
The removal tool is expensive. I found drilling into the open end with a 3/32" twist drill bit removes them without damaging the shell.

Distributors Digi-Key part no. A30262-ND, Mouser 571-14450226
Extractor TE 305183
