Abstract : An interconnector device permits a lithium-sulfur-dioxide battery (e.g., the BA5847/U) to be substituted for standard Leclanche battery (e.g., the BA200/U). The lithium-type battery can therefore be used in its customary manner or, with the interconnector, as a substitute for the Leclanche battery; battery proliferation is thereby reduced. The interconnector comprises a rectangular wafer of plastic material with a pair of prongs mounted on one flat surface of the wafer and at a location which corresponds to that of female sockets of the lithium-type battery. A pair of coil spring connectors are mounted on the opposite flat surface of the wafer and at locations which correspond to the locations of the coil spring connectors of the Leclanche battery. The prongs and coil spring connectors of the interconnector are electrically interconnected in parallel.
