Powercard Corporation is the distributor for both Powerdex
and Polaroid thin format batteries. We have been involved with
this technology for over 25 years, and can provide technical help and design
The Gould Powerdex
6A1400 batteries were designed to be used interchangeably with the Polaroid P100
batteries. Gould no longer manufactures batteries and they are no longer
available, however P100 batteries (below) will work as replacements, however
they have lower capacity and therefore will need to be changed more often.
P100 batteries are designed to be used in applications where customer
replacement is desirable. They share the same thin format with both contacts on
the same side, offset to prevent polarity reversal. They can be quickly and
easily changed by being inserted into a slot in your device, much as a bankcard
is inserted into an automatic teller machine. The P100 has a suggested list
price of $4.75.
P80 batteries are used either in disposable items, in battery packs or in
applications where a technician must change the battery. They can be used in
series or in parallel to increase voltage, current or capacity. The P80 battery
is supplied mounted on a card with a thin plastic overwrap.
Although not designed as rechargeable batteries, P80's and P100's have been
successfully recharged for many cycles by some customers and are being used in this
metal contacts are also available at 100 for $10.00.
We have produced two designer's kits to help people use our batteries in their
products. The P80 kit contains ten P80 batteries and ten spring metal contacts.
The The P100 kit contains five P100 batteries and a prewired plastic battery
holder. These kits are available from us for $25.00 each, postpaid in U.S.A.
