I have a specific application that requires a board to be powered by Alkaline batteries and would like to solder direct to the PCB using wave solder vs. hand solder (need to consider a high volume manufacturing method).
The battery will NOT be an SMT to the PCB, but thru-hole leads.
The battery will be be on the top of the PCB with other components, but not resting on any of the electronics.
Please send any issues, problems, or suggestions to push this forward and minimize rework, scrap, or wounded materials. Any consideration to damaging the Alkaline battery?
Example of leads, not the actual Alkaline battery to be used.
