Battery holder

Steve Hwang, sales manager of Comfortable Electronic

The supplier boasts strong R&D and a high-tech facility equipped with advanced machinery.

Comfortable Electronic is leveraging its R&D expertise to develop high-tech battery holders for outdoor use with IP68 rating. With a monthly capacity of 6 million units, the supplier counts Panasonic, NEC, Omron and Radioshack as its customers.

In an interview with Global Sources, general manager Steve Hwang discusses the company’s product enhancement, R&D and export plans.

What new products will you release in the months ahead?

Although we are not the first to develop water-resistant battery holders, we are proud of our newest water-resistant units with IP68 rating. These are ideal for the power supply of outdoor alarm systems, decorative lighting, remote monitoring and marine environment applications. We design our products with ABS plastic base and nylon cable gland, which supports high-strength impact resistance. Our units are sealed with a rubber ring to ensure durability and protection against oil, dust and water. The products can be used in deep-water power supply, and can withstand -10 to 80 C temperatures.

Describe the products and services you offer.

We offer battery holders and snaps for OEM and ODM orders. Other products include coin cell holders, metal contacts and wire assemblies. Our high production capacity of 6 million units a month is our main advantage. In addition, we have a short turnaround time of 25 days. Our robust and innovative R&D team has patented designs in the US, the UK, Germany and Thailand. To guarantee high-quality models with precise contacts, we are using a Komax 40 automated crimping machine from Switzerland. Our clients include renowned international companies Panasonic, NEC, Omron and Radioshack.

What countries are you targeting in the months ahead?

North America, Europe, Asia and Taiwan are our current export destinations, taking up 40, 15, 15 and 25 percent of shipments, respectively. We are eyeing other markets, but expansion will be gradual due to economic uncertainties.

How do you cope with rising raw material costs?

The issue has affected us greatly. But instead of raising quotes for current orders, we inform our clients that markups will be implemented in future transactions. Also, we try to absorb the additional costs as much as possible, before negotiating price increases with buyers. This enables us to maintain long-term relationships.
