Prismatic cells were designed to be used with wire leads. Attempts to use them with printed circuit board solder tabs, either surface-mount or through-hole, are generally not successful. The preferred way to use them is with wires soldered to solder tabs, which are capacitance-discharge spot welded to the battery terminals. In turn these wires go either to the safety board or to a pin-and-socket PC board connector to plug onto the board. From the safety board the output wires can also be soldered directly into the circuit board, or using a pin-and-socket connector.
