I have a laptop battery pack with a fried component (visually fried) that has the appearance of a large surface mount resistor (only 2 connectors). It has the PCB abbreviation next to it of "SR1" which I have not been able to identify. It also has "R010" and "FZ67" on it, though I haven't been able to find a component matching those part numbers either. One side of it connects directly to one end of the battery pack.

How do I identify this part?

    \$\begingroup\$ The question would be easier to answer, if you add a photo of the component on the board. \$\endgroup\$ Dec 13, 2013 at 16:41

    \$\begingroup\$ @Markus, a picture, and possibly a schematic (self drawn) would help. R010 could refer to a 0.01Ω Resistor, as a "Series Resistor" or "Shunt Resistor" for voltage and current sensing. But most resistors only have one code, not two on them. So a picture is a must here. \$\endgroup\$

"SR" could an abbreviation of Silicon Rectifier. Its a 2 terminal component and could have the size of a smd resistor.

Its look like this:

Here are some examples of components: 1, 2, 3, 4

  • \$\begingroup\$ Sorry for the late reply. Thanks to all for your responses and help (sorry I didn't know this forum was aimed mainly at design, so I'll keep than in mind for the future, I'll also remember diagrams and/or photos). I think Butzke has hit the nail on the head, that's exactly how it looks and suits its location in circuit. Thanks for a great and detailed answer. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ That being said, before getting a replacement, I'll draw the circuit to ensure it's not a resistor for voltage monitoring as previously suggested. Thanks again. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Markus those packages are used for multiple types of devices. Diodes, Resistors, chip inductors, fuses, etc. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ This is almost certainly wrong. There would be no reason to connect such a diode directly to one terminal of a battery pack. \$\endgroup\$

Shunt resistor, 0.010 ohms, common on laptop battery PCB.

    \$\begingroup\$ Agreed - the reported component marking "R010" fits with this answer. \$\endgroup\$
