As of the publication of this article, we are not currently qualifying a C-size form factor. When we develop a new part number, we typically look for a lead customer and a significant production opportunity. We have had some feedback from the industry that a C-size form factor could be useful in certain downhole applications to more easily fit into existing systems. Given a Purchase Order (PO) of significant size, we could move to design and qualify that part. The initial shipments would include a longer lead time to allow for the design and qualification period. Following that, this would become a standard part number with a standard lead time. In the meantime, some customers are using a triangular configuration of AA cells or are designing their housings to fit D or AA cell formats.
