SHANGHAI – February 20, 2013 - TE Connectivity today launched a new low-profile battery connector with a height of 1.9mm for mobile devices. With increasing global demand for high-performing, cost-effective and slimmer mobile devices, TE designed the low-profile battery connector to optimize reliability and durability while addressing industry needs.
"Engineering a new solution for mobile battery interconnection really challenged our product development team to think out-of-the-box and with the end consumer in mind,” said Masaki Shoji, product manager, TE Consumer Devices. “We focused on developing a mobile battery connector with a low-profile design that has flexibility – meaning, it can adapt to individualized customer designs – as well as ensuring a reliable connection and a competitive production cost.”
Key features and benefits of the low-profile battery connector include:
• Decreased production cost by reducing to a singular component
• Improved design efficiencies and low-profile height of 1.9mm for thinner and sleeker end-products
• Enhanced electrical reliability against external disturbances, such as vibration, extreme temperatures or shock
• Increased durability and lifespan – sustained 5,000 cycles in a durability test without any damage to the contact
