Battery Interconnects for PC

Reliable, high-performing, and multi-directional

We have developed and manufactured reliable, high-performing, multi-directional battery interconnects since the introduction of standard NiMH rechargeable batteries to original equipment manufacturers of PCs.

These five-position headers and our five-position receptacle connectors provide reliable, easy mate and unmate interconnects.  Single contacts are rated at seven amperes with a 30°C rise time, and have an operating temperature rating of -30°C to +70°C. Headers feature sturdy brass contacts with duplex plated tin or tin-lead solder tails and nickel on the mating area. These features ensure the life of the system and provide high cycle mating/unmating of interconnects. Housings are made of high temperature, UL 94V-0 rated thermoplastic and are available with left- or right-hand keying, or with keyless mounting configurations. Keyless headers are designed to minimize board space requirements and require the battery manufacturer to provide a voltage key in the battery pack compartment. Keyless headers accept all three voltage battery packs.
