Thank you!

My problem now is the replacement of the tiny male connectors which hooks onto the chip. They are shown in the last image above at the end of the white wire!

I do not know where to get them, given that mine were broken off.

I would deeply appreciate your help in identifying this type of connectors and locating a sources!

Apart from that, as usual, an excellent and up-to-the-point review.

Thank you again.
