Where can I find this battery contact?
I'm looking for a receptacle like the one shown in the pic.
I tried so many key words like battery connector, blade receptacle pcb, battery terminal pcb and more and any combination of those in google, mouser and digikey.
The picture shows the internals of a Makita battery.
I have a project where I could use such robust contacts, that have a lot of play/lash/clearance. It is for an assembly that has to be mounted and dismounted regularly. We will have mechanical guides but I fear that standard battery connectors have not enough lash because they are quite small compared to the assembly. And those Makita connectors provide good guid for the blade that goes into the receptacle.
Does anyone have an idea where I can find that thing or at least how it is called?
I already got a hint from EEVBlog forum that TE's Pluggable Bus Bar Connectors could do the job, but they are very expensive --> 36USD/piece.
I also found cheap replacement boards for the Makita one, so those connectors have to be available somewhere?
