    very useful and creative. thanks man.

    you can get 2 things, 9 batteries and the clip thanks for that

    really nice project definetively one of my top 10's becouse i can always use a coyple of 9v clips :) thanks for posting this

    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...

    5 minute epoxy. Just a dab will do ya.

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

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

    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.
