NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y.—Keystone Electronics recently introduced its latest series of Compact Multi-Purpose Coin Cell Power Packs to address increasing demands for safe, reliable, and secure holders for its 2032 coin cell battery, the company said in a release.

The power packs feature a built-in on/off toggle switch for multi-purpose applications. The design is said to make the product safe, while extending the life of the battery with switchable power. The body is manufactured from molded polypropylene (PP) for increased durability, and the contacts are made from phosphor bronze with nickel plating, according to the release.

The self-contained compact power packs can be placed on or off a board, as well as between components, and are suitable for consumer or industrial products. They are polarized to protect circuitry from improper battery installation. In addition to portability, the devices feature an attached retaining cover that is kept closed with a snap-on feature and screws for additional safety and security, the company said.

The power packs are available in configurations to accommodate a single 2032 coin cell for 3 volt applications (Cat. No 1086) or dual 2032 coin cells to be used in 6 volt applications (Cat. No 1092). They come supplied with standard 26 AWG wire leads in 6.00-inch lengths, and are available from stock through Keystone’s global distribution network.
