New 18650 socket design

Hi guys, I’m working on a project with a different 18650 socket. I’m using just the terminals on each end to save space as much as possible.

Here is the terminals specs

And the end result should look like something like this image

Any idea on how can I create this part?


This should do what you want.

thanks Peter will give it a try and let you know the results

Assuming you want to use this for 18650 batteries, the data sheet here:

has an appropriate layout (although it is for 18650s with internal protectors and thus likely needs to be 2mm shorter for non protected cells. A part with two clips and a battery in breadboard may be the better bet if you want to do a lot of them.
