    I need a new one, but I don't know what it's called to search for it. 2.54mm pitch _____something

    EDIT removed pics, too huge, see attachments

    @strantor: Did you measure the contact pitch? Are you certain it is 2.54 mm? I have seen 2 mm and 1.25 mm pitch connectors that look similar to this, but not 2.54 mm.

    yeah I looked at the molex connectors linked and my connector has more of a taper, where the molex is square

    Well, I had a strip of 2.54mm male pin header and I stuck it in the holes; all 12 pins went into the holes. pretty sure

    OK. You might take a look at FCI, JST, and Hirose, they have some connectors that look a little similar but I scanned through their catalogs and didn't see one that jumped out to me as a match.

    Also, the Mouser search engine has great search filters, and is a helpful way to search many vendors at once.

    Initially I thought JST XHP-12 but the images seem slightly different and the polarising keying is less aggressive.

    Might be from one of the lesser connector manufacturers ie. not Molex, JST
