Slide-In PC Mount Battery Contacts
We've once again met the increasing demands for higher energy, lower weight cylindrical battery usage with the introduction of our latest leaf spring contacts. These new contacts are designed to slide-into molded cases with wire leads or mounted directly onto a PCB as a Surface Mount Contact.
Engineered with a contact design that adjusts to variations in battery length, these contacts assure low contact resistance and dependable connectivity. Manufactured from .012” (.30mm) thick, Spring Steel and supplied with Nickel Plating for superior performance in today’s high tech devices. Contacts are designed to accommodate A. AA & CR2 cylindrical batteries.

Battery Insulating Pull Tabs 
Keystone recently introduced battery insulators designed to protect batteries and circuitry during shipping and storage prior to use.
These new insulating pull tabs are installed in a product along with the batteries to act as an insulator from energizing the device prior to use. Simply pull the tab out from under the battery contact to activate the product. Lettering and arrows on the pull tabs make for simplified removal.
Manufactured from thin, flexible polyester, these pull tabs can be removed from a battery compartment even if the compartment is closed.
