Nice instructable and quite inventive. I will retrieve a few of the 9 volt'ers from the hazardous waste can. I can always use a few battery clips. Excellent!

Instead of cutting the case apart you can just fold apart the top edges like i did in mine, that way you are able to save the case for an enclosure for other projects. nice post tho, i like all the pictures

Those "AAA" batteries that are in those, are not quite as long as a AAA, and the polarities are backwards, the little bump, is the negative side.

Yeah. they are "AAAA" (quadruple-A). Thanks for noticing ;)

I was just wondering if you actually ever tried putting them in your tv remote.
They are shorter, you have to use some tin foil to make it work, and the polarity is backwards from normal the little nub is negative.

Yes. They are good for emergencies.

The mechanical stress moving the wires will cause eventual fails. Maybe embedding the connector in hot glue can solve it...

liquid electrical tape

True.

did the same thing a while ago, I used heat shrink to cover it up.

author
razvan_iycdi (author)batonas2012-07-10

nice idea. I didn't have any shrink wrap tho.

What is the "reflow method"?

author

The "reflow" method is when you re-melt the solder. So you make it flow again. You solder the place where you want the wire, in this case the contact circle, and then you solder the wire alone. Then you put them both together and you re melt the solder so it sticks.

Clever idea and Nice photos. I like how you used the image note function for the steps. Thanks for the share!

Thanks!

good, but i think i would have used on black and one red wire

author
razvan_iycdi (author)diy_bloke2012-07-10

That's a good idea. I didn't have any black wire so I just made one of them longer.
