I needed some small battery holders for a project and although they are not very expensive to buy online the cost of shipping to Canada (and the amount of time it takes) is ridiculous.  So instead I made my own battery holders using a glue gun and some bits of metal.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

  • Glue gun(low temperature*) and glue
  • Small scraps of metal
  • Pliers
  • Batteries (best to use dead ones)
  • Dremel, cutting tool and mat
  • Helping hands

*I find that with low temperature glue guns the glue doesn't seem to stick very well making it easier to remove the batteries
