The first picture is the finished battery pack in its weird case.  You can choose your own casing.

 

Step 2:

The second picture with lid off the case shows the parts involved. 
The female socket is at the bottom of the case (at the back in the picture). 


* Parts List * 
- 6 cell AA battery holder
- a 9-volt battery socket to connect to the 6-cell holder (or solder wires directly to the battery holder terminals)
- female cigarette lighter socket

- switch (optional)
- any container you wish to design (I used cutaways of 2 empty plastic hand cream bottles (brand name Aveeno, I think).

Step 3:

Picture of
This 3rd photo shows from where the female socket was obtained.  I bought a "Y" extension cable  with a lighter plug and cut off one of the legs of the "Y" to install inside the battery pack box.  You may want to leave your female socket outside the box 'hanging' from its wires.

Step 4:

Picture of
The 4th picture shows how I secured the female socket to the container with a screw.  I used a very short screw.  You have to be careful to drill a hole for the screw on the underside of the socket in a place where it does not touch any metal inside parts.
I also used double-side tape to hold the socket in place before screwing it down.
