The connector is referred to as a 'Mate-N-Lok'. I believe it is the same
connector that Elecraft uses to plug in the 12v gel cell into the K2's
Some people buy a female (receptacle) Mate-N-Lok (from Mouser, etc., use the
name as a search term on Mouser's website) and make an adapter to Anderson
Powerpoles, a barrel connector, etc., depending on their application.
Others cut the connector off the battery and put their own connector on it.
It's up to you.
I know that one of these cells will fit inside a K1. Has anyone tried to
see if it will fit inside a KX1? I also use 'em with my HTs since they are
a LOT cheaper than AA NiMH cells and easier to recharge in the field (just
plug them into a 12v auto cigarette lighter receptacle -- they can't be
overcharged on 13.8 VDC). Two of them fit inside a cheap digital camera
case, and it's easy to have a spare pair charging while I use a pair.
Like I said, I've got about 40 left so if anyone wants some let me know
