I've finally received the amp and volt meter. They both come with 4 pin molex connectors with attached wire. The wiring that was included is not long enough to reach. I've never worked with a molex connector like this before. Should I splice additional wire to the one that was included? or is there a way to detach the included wire from the connector and add my own wire? I'd be using station wire in this example. I'm worried about damaging the connectors and since it took quite a while to recieive the meters am hesitant. Thanks.

Just solder your wires to the end of the molex wires and then heatshrink. Then you'll be able to run them wherever you need. Be careful, those pins in the moles are cheap and flimsy. I had to mess with mine to get the meter to turn on right out of the box.
