Step 1: Materials and Tools
- Glue gun(low temperature*) and glue
- Small scraps of metal
- 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
Step 2: Battery Stack Holder: contacts
- Cut the metal piece so that it is roughly twice the size as the diameter of the battery
- Bend the metal in half making a 90 degree angle (roughly). You can round the edges of the metal if you want.
- If you plan to use the battery holder with conductive thread drill a hole through the middle of one of the sides, If you plan to solder wire to the holder you don't really need to make holes.
- Repeat with the second piece.
Step 3: Battery Stack Holder: Glue
- Place the negative side of one of the batteries against one of the metal contacts and hold together with the helping hands. (It is best to use a dead battery for the mold since the alligator clip will cause a short circuit).
- Glue the battery and metal contact together making sure not to get glue between the battery and metal.
- Repeat with the second battery with the positive side against the metal contact.
- Trim the excess glue from the face of the free side of the battery as you will want the two batteries to sit flush against one another.
