As always: be extremely careful with Li-Ion batteries bought from dubious sources. Not six months ago I bought some 18650 branded Ultrafire that were giving me a voltage of 3.8V... when fully charged. I've never figured out what they were, exactly, but they sure weren't Li-Ion cells!

Otherwise, why not using LiPo flat cells? your PCB looks one-sided, so you could stack them on the back. Just don't stick a knife through those...

Seems it is hard to find a SMD battery holder for this model :)))
I will have to design mine, I'm afraid


you bought the worst battery's ever made .. ultrafire :sunglasses:


yes true, been there
I've looked at this solution

those 26350 are excellent quality, but for a production I would contact the factory, can you still buy them next year ?

well, to be honest, much more expensive.
but dealing with the BlackBerry Q10 keyboard connectors is a nightmare


ah ok, I thought that blackberry keyboard was very expensive.
complicated project... how's the firmware going ?

q10 bb kb are only 4 USD but the hirose 28 pin nano connector is awfull.
firmware is the one of ESP32 dev board.
I have mst of thel the functions in C done.
just need to assemble the puzzle's pièces.
