Coin Cell Battery

Coin Cell Battery | 14 August, 2002

I am trying to find a removable tab to place between a coin cell battery and the + contact of the battery holder. We want to have the battery installed in the holder and have the user remove a tab to enable the battery.

Thanks

James

Insulating tab approach, like: * Go to page 5 of http://www.kalatel.com/lit-rack/install-man/kts_253_253-16_man.pdf

* http://support.tandy.com/support_radios/doc64/64039.htm

* Go to �Fixing�, Step 6 of http://www.sunvic.co.uk/TLX%20Digital%20Room%20Thermostat/TLX7501_user_w.pdf

Cover tape works GREAT for this approach!!!

Jumper pin approach: The system board is shipped from the factory with pins 3-4 shorted to prevent battery drain during storage.

Switch approach: Use a master on-off switch to prevent battery drain during normal handling. Or make sure that the unit and other accessories are turned off to prevent battery drain.

Fuse removal approach: You can easily remove the fuse to prevent battery drain for long-term storage.
