  Battery connection schemes often facilitate a constructed of wire. In order to reduce tooling wire formed spring terminal (usually connecting the and piece part cost both the positive and negative negative terminal) in conjunction with a stamped contact could be fabricated during the same wire plate or leaf spring (usually connecting the positive form operation. The terminals could be connected terminal). In an effort to reduce the size of the by a joining tab (see Figure 1).

The combined contacts would then be inserted reducing the number of components needed to be into a "battery compartment" as a single piece, thus assembled (see Figure 2).
