Surface Mounting Lithium Battery Holder for CR2032 Cells

Tue, 08/17/2010 - 11:05am
MPD introduces the BC2032-F1, a battery holder for CR2032 cells. This holder also accepts the ever popular BR2032 battery and is suitable for consumer or industrial products like server, workstations and pcb’s.

The design was recently discontinued by Sony when they exited the battery holder manufacturing business. MPD offers second sourcing of most brands of holders since several key players exited the market during the economic downturn. Delphi, Specialty Electronics (SEI) and Sony most notably are all former suppliers of battery holders.

BC2032-F1 has large nickel plated stainless steel pressure contacts with surface mounting tabs. Dual wiping contacts keep a keep a tight connection with the cell by design, you’re assured of a long term trouble free connection.

The glass filled UL94V-0 plastic body is light in weight, yet combined with high strength for a long service life under the typical conditions electronic equipment is subjected to. Offering a very wide temperature range of -40°C to + 260°C assures the wide range of applications are accommodated. The holder size is 5.2 mm high and only 21.4 mm wide.

The battery holder prevents the insertion of the battery when upside down and it can only be installed with the positive side facing up. This polarity protection reduces service problems and/or calls to the manufacturer using the BC2032-F1 in its products. List price for 1,000 pieces is $0.47 each and volume discounts are available. Delivery is normally from distributor stock or after a short waiting period. Web Link:      end High resolution photos are located in MPD’s media area.
