Expanding Yokowo’s line of two-piece battery connectors is a compact version with two less blades than the original six-blade type. The four-blade model allows for both horizontal and vertical blade insertion and its compact size yields a pitch reduction from 3 mm to 2.5 mm. The receptacle side features a dual beam contact in both insertion directions to ensure a constant connection. Other features include a current rating of 2A per blade, 30 mΩ maximum (initial) contact resistance, an operating temperature ranging from -40ºC to +85ºC, voltage rating of 12 Vac/dc, and a functional lifespan of 2,000 cycles.
