MPD’s development kit of through-hole and surface-mount coin cell battery holders includes five pieces of each type. The kit’s battery holders, retainers, and gliders offer a wide diversity of the most common coin cell sizes, 10 mm to 24 mm diameters, and can accommodate various shapes and requirements. With 100 pieces of multiple design choices for mounting CR2032 lithium batteries included, this kit gives designers more options than ever.
Coin Cell Battery Holders
Widely used in thousands of everyday products, lithium coin cell holders in designs have advanced battery holder technologies. Lithium coin cell holders for 10 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, 20 mm, 23 mm, and 24 mm diameter batteries are included in the kit.
Gliders are a hybrid between a retainer and a holder, offering the price competitiveness of a coin cell retainer, while at the same time offering a very reliable connection. Once the battery has been installed into the tray, it simply glides into the retainer and the tray locks into place. Surface mounting positive contact places the battery directly on a pad on the PCB to reduce height. Included in the kit are 20 mm and 24 mm diameter pieces.
The lithium battery retainer offers an ultra-low profile. Ten variations accepting cells from 10 mm diameter to 24 mm diameter (CR2450). Retainers are surface mounting positive contacts that place a lithium battery directly on a PCB pad to reduce height. Retainers require no tools for coin-cell battery removal and replacement.
