Vodavi STS battery issues

Vodavi STS battery issues

Vodavi STS battery issues

Just wondering if any guys/gals have a custom solution for the never ending battery woes of the STS cabinets?
Thank you in advance as always.


RE: Vodavi STS battery issues

I solder in a new one. Good for another ten years +/-. You COULD solder in a battery holder, making future replacements a bit easier. However, I don't see many of these systems making it another ten years.

RE: Vodavi STS battery issues

Doesn't that get messy? e.g. solder dripping on board?


RE: Vodavi STS battery issues

We just avoid dripping on the board. You can mask off areas to give yourself some breathing room - the workspace is not very tight. You could also cut the existing battery off and solder to the current battery leads. Note - do NOT try and solder directly to a battery - bad things can happen.
