Memory Protection Devices (MPD) has released a whole new category of battery holders for lithium coin cell batteries. "Gliders" are a hybrid type combining the low cost of retainers with higher reliability than regular coin cell battery holders. They are particularly suitable for hand-held consumer and medical products, electronic cards, electronic toll tags, single-use devices, alarm systems, main boards, PND's and RFID. Gliders are available immediately in 20 styles ranging from 10 mm diameter (CR1025) to 24 mm diameter (CR2430). Versions that hold two batteries in series for 6 volt applications are also included in the product launch, giving MPD Gliders a capability unmatched by prior retainers.
