This tutorial is perfect to do if you are a beginner and want to learn how to solder!
Step 1: Parts
- 4 x AA Battery Holder #: 270-391 ($1)
- 1.2V/2000mAh AA Ni-MH Rechargeable Batteries #: 23-525 ($20)
You need 4 of these, the part number is for only a 2 pack, you can find them cheaper like $4 for two sometimes.
- AA battery charger ( there are many kinds at radioshack and elsewhere)
- Soldering iron #: 64-2051 ($8)
-USB extension cable http://tinyurl.com/l78l5n ($1)
That's all, lets get started!
Step 2: Putting the Holder In.
Put the bottom side in first and then pop in the top
Step 3: Soldering the Wires.
Now you need to solder the red from the holder to the red on the usb extension cable. Then the black wire to the black on the Extension cable.
Here is a helpful diagram ( I am not good at making these)
