Panasonic Launches the Industry's Thinnest Battery Connector Corresponding to 6 Ampere High Current Capacity, Contributing to Further Improvement in Mobile Devices

Osaka, Japan - Panasonic Corporation has announced that it has developed a battery connector for FPC (Flexible Printed Circuit) boards corresponding to high current capacity and boasting the industry's thinnest profile.* It is useful in the connection of the battery to the electrical circuit in smartphones, tablets, and other wearable devices using embedded batteries.

    Battery Connector "B01 series" Corresponding to High Current Capacity


  1. The industry's thinnest* 0.6-mm battery connector with 6.0 A (3.0A/pin x 2 pins) high electric currency capacity. It will contribute to further improvement in mobile devices.
  2. Its high retention force, despite its small size and thin profile, has been achieved thanks to Panasonic's unique multi-contact mechanism[1], obtaining higher connection reliability as a result.
  3. Higher assembly efficiency is realized with its easy positioning when fitting the socket to the header.

Smartphones and other mobile or wearable devices involve many functions; some of these functions need a high electrical current, such as camera flashes and bright displays, and this trend is expected to continue. On the other hand, these devices are becoming thinner and lighter year by year, so the batteries must be smaller and lighter. Therefore, the connector between the batteries and the electronic circuit must be small and able to correspond to larger electrical currents.
Panasonic has successfully created a commercial product with this connector, which features the industry's thinnest* profile of 0.6 mm and a high electric current capacity of 6A. By realizing a high retention force for powerful connection reliability, despite being compact and thin, this product is perfect as a connection point transmitting high current, such as the battery connections of mobile devices, smartphones, tablets, and other wearable devices.

* As a battery connector for mobile devices. As of October 1, 2014, according to a Panasonic survey.
