At 6:29s of this video, the presenter picks up an adapter: https://youtu.be/UbPi7s1ZZVI?t=6m29s
 
What is the name of this adapter / is there an example of a link on Amazon etc.?
 
This is an adapter required to use a fan with 5v connector in 3.3v mode with GPIO on boards like RPI

Just clip the connectors off and wire directly or swap to the connector that works.  the adapters often take up too much space to fit in the battery compartment.

I need lots of these so that's why I want to find where I can purchase it, because DIY will take a long time in bulk. Does anyone have any idea where to get this?

Here is a Raspberry Pi fan

 

The fan end is called a Micro JST, but I didn't see any with a finished end on the side to connect to the Raspberry Pi.
