Battery connectors are interconnecting devices used in the connection of batteries and electronic products. They are used in portable electronic products such as cellular phones, computers, and medical equipment, which are becoming thinner and smaller.
By assembling different colors and shapes for each voltage, misassembly can be prevented.
Although suitable for use with batteries, they are also used for a wide variety of non-battery-related applications, such as connection of sliding or compression type modules.
The connectors are used in electric vehicles, submarines, and motorsports because they can withstand high current loads and require no maintenance. Maintenance and checking can be performed safely by simply removing the assembly.
They are used in medical equipment and transportation equipment due to their simple structure and high reliability.
The technology has progressed from lithium-ion batteries to lithium-polymer batteries, which have a large power capacity per unit area and a high degree of freedom in terms of shape, resulting in thinner and smaller batteries. The ability to downsize in line with this progress has led to their use in cellular phones and computers.
The simple structure allows for high design flexibility and easy size change according to the number of poles, operating height, and terminal pitch. Also, there is no difference between sockets and plugs, and the identical shape facilitates storage. They are also compatible with Anderson connectors. Easy to assemble and disassemble.
Connectors are color-coded by voltage to prevent miswiring by assembling them with the same color or changing the shape so that they do not assemble if the combination is not as intended.
End-to-end stacks and contacts are made of various metals for high cycle life. Headers for vertical or horizontal mounting in keyless or left/right keying configurations are also available, allowing for assembly and disassembly in the 0° to 90° angle range.
The connection method to the battery can be leaf, pogo-pin, or plug-in type, whichever is appropriate for the application. The leaf type is suitable for thin batteries, such as cellular phones.
