The first electrical contact is configured to engage a first external conductive circuit element and the a second electrical contact is configured to engage a second external conductive circuit element. The first contact and the second contact are configured such that a portion of the first contact and a portion of the second contact converge as the base moves in a first direction relative to the first and second external conductive circuit elements and diverge as the base moves in a second direction relative to the first and second external conductive circuit elements.
