This is an idea I came up with while I was making my previous Instructable. As I mentioned in there, my first version of the project did not work out very well at all, partially because I didn't have a proper battery holder. This simple, effortless idea would have helped me a lot. 

Step 1: Supplies

All you need to make this is
  • Battery
  • Packaging of the battery
  • Thick aluminium foil (I got it from a disposable food tray)
  • Glue (optional)
  • Scissors
<p>sorry for the repeats my computer is crazy</p>

Thank you very much. I was stuck on a project due to no cell holder for 2 years. <br>Thank You VERY VERY MUCH.
Glad I could help.
Thanks,for this instructables.
Nice upcycle! Cheers!
just what I needed. thanx
Does anyone know where i can get alligator clips for free? <br>
Not free, but you can get them on eBay for $2.47 &nbsp;-&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ebay.com/itm/10pcs-5-Color-Double-ended-Test-Alligator-Crocodile-Roach-Clip-Jumper-Wire-/140872826854?pt=AU_B_I_Electrical_Test_Equipment&hash=item20ccacbfe6" rel="nofollow">http://goo.gl/nldED</a>
Good one
Great idea... easy to through together ASAP. <br>This idea could be adapted to just about any of the battery blister packs. <br> <br>The multi battery packs could easily be set up for different voltage steps (1 1/2 &amp; 3 &amp; 6 volts) using small pieces of double-sided foam mounting tape. <br> <br>It might (almost) become a permanent battery holder. Again good job!
Thanks WPee, I like that idea of the double-sided mounting tape. That would probably give it the necessary flexibility so batteries will not fall out. I agree about making the holder permanent. For batteries that wont be replaced too often, that should work well. You could also put screws through the sides of the blister to fasten it to a surface.
Very creative, simple yet Brilliant in design. <br>Yes I would have to agree with some of the other comments I could see it as a permanent holder for certain applications. <br>And thinking of times that I hadn't done a project because I didn't have a &quot;proper&quot; battery holder this would of solved a lot of the issues and what's even better is it comes with the battery. <br>Well Done love to see the upgrade ideas when you do them <br>Regards
I left the plastic blister on the cardboard and just slit the back to make ah door that I can tape shut. This idea works really good on multi-battery pack giving higher voltages AND the batteries can be wired series/parallel for higher amps.<br> <br> This idea is a definate 'Spark'. Kudos.
Thanks, I'm glad you like it. Great idea with the &quot;door&quot;. Unfortunately I came up with this idea after I removed the plastic cover, so I couldn't really be very creative with it anymore.
Yeah you can... <br>Tape some more card board on to it. <br>You could really get crazy with it. <br>
They could be like Modular Battery Packs. <br>Do I see an Update coming? <br>
I'm hoping to get an AA six-pack in a few day, so you'll probably get an update.
Try for 2 four packs then you can have 2 six Volt sources to combine for 12V or higher current. I re-charge mine off a DC to DC converter set to 12V @ 2A. <br>Works good too. <br>
The converter works off my solar system direct. <br>
Elegant
This project very great. I can try this.
This is such a good idea. I will definately use this.
this is a great idea! Thanks.
Definitely gonna use this!!!
Genius! Definitely going to be using this in the future. <br /> <br />GM
great job! Definitely going to use this for proof of concept ideas!!!!
That is excellent. I love it when garbage has a purpose.
