Reliable, High-Performance Connectors
Our battery interconnects for PCs are engineered for reliable high-performance. These five-position headers and our five-position receptacle connectors easily mate and unmate. 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.

Drop-In Receptacle Connectors
Weld Tab or Solder Tail
Our drop-in receptacle connectors fit securely within the battery pack compartment. They are offered in a choice of weld tab or solder tail versions for PC board mounting. Housings are made from high impact UL 94V-0 rated thermoplastic with high temperature housings available for solder tail versions. TE battery interconnection systems provide variable direction mating and voltage or form-factor polarization for safe, friendly operation.
As the size of mobile equipment shrinks and the space for battery packs continues to decrease, the need to balance current carrying capabilities, ensure higher amps, and support quicker charging times becomes more important. TE offers a range of battery pack interconnect solutions that are not only designed on both a 2.0mm to 2.5mm centerline, but come with many positioning options. This portfolio of products supports the various requirements for design engineers and provides what is necessary for reliable connections between a main PCB and a battery pack. 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.
