Small Electronics Enclosure with Battery Holders – Key Fobs

Even in small electronic equipment, there are small enclosures that are designed to protect these minute and delicate piece of electronics. The key fob enclosures are originally designed to be able to fit comfortably just in the palms of your hand.

Even if these small electronics enclosure are very small, the need for additional battery holders can potentially bring large damage if they will slide just around inside the casing of the enclosure. For this to be prevented and to maintain the integrity of the PCB – eventually to avoid permanent damage – the battery holders should be attached to the board through soldering.

Soldering is not a complicated process, and anyone can do it. In this article, we will give you tips on how to effectively solder the battery holder unto the board.

Don’t know how to solder? Listed below are some helpful tips. While it takes some practice and proper tools, soldering is basically gluing items together using molten metal instead of glue.

Below is the list of helpful tips on how to successfully solder a battery holder unto the board. I suggest that before you do this procedure practice a couple of times using the right tools. Soldering works like just a basic glue, it holds items together just by using a molten metal instead of a wet glue.

First you should prepare the soldering iron:

Preparing the soldering iron:

Place the soldering iron in its stand and plug in.

  1. Carefully place the soldering iron on its stand and plug it in. Remember that its tip gets hot when it is plugged to the electricity, that’s why it is important to use a soldering iron stand.
  2. Prepare a dampened sponge near the stand.
  3. The soldering iron will take a few minutes to warm up. Be careful in assessing if the soldering iron is already hot.
  4. You will notice that the tip of the soldering iron will heat up and smoke a bit. Wipe the tip of the soldering iron using a damp sponge.
  5. Once the tip of the solder is wiped, melt a small amount of solder on the tip of the hot iron.

When you are done with this procedure, you are now ready to attach the battery holder unto the board.

Below are the tips on how you can successfully attach the battery holder unto the soldering iron:

  1. Carefully touch the tip of the hot soldering iron to the joint of the pieces that will be attached.
  2. Carefully place or feed the solder in between the joints to attach the two pieces together
  3. Remove the solder and then the iron while holding the two pieces’ joints steadily.
  4. Closely inspect the joints if it was attached very successfully.
