Two-Piece Battery Connectors with Two-Way Insertion Capability

Yokowo’s two piece battery connectors have expanded and now will include a compact version. Featuring two less blades than the original six-blade type, the new four blade model is designed to allow for flexibility for both horizontal and vertical blade insertion.  The compact size has also resulted in a reduction in pitch (from 3 mm to 2.5 mm).

To ensure a constant connection, the receptacle side features dual beam contact in both insertion directions. Two tabs are uniquely fitted on the receptacle to provide a secure grip around the blade upon insertion. Biaxial torsion and a floating function absorb the battery gap, and reduce the risk of intermittent power outages (even if the device is dropped).

This two piece battery connector is well suited for use in devices where uninterrupted power is critical, including but not limited to cellphones, mobile devices, GPS units, tablet PCs and any type of handheld portable unit that is operated in a harsh environment.  The four blade type is capable of handling high rated currents of up to 2 A per blade.

Yokowo’s compact two piece battery connector features a 30 m? maximum (initial) contact resistance, operating temperatures ranging from -40ºC to 85ºC, voltage of 12 V AC/DC and operational durability of 2,000 cycles. The plug side is 2.2 mm by 2.6 mm by 7 mm and the receptacle side is 3 mm by 2.5 mm by 8.8 mm. Each blade consists of four contacts with a 2.5 mm pitch.
