Introduction: Aaaa Battery Hack!

You probably have some really cool, free aaaa batteries sitting around at your home, and may not even know it! What you need: 9 volt battery, Needle nose pliers, Wire clippers (maybe)

Step 1: Remove the Metal Battery Casing

However you want to do this. Using, pliers and/or wire clippers.

Step 2: Keep Disassembling

Remove any other plastic/metal casing around the aaaa batteries.

Step 3: Remove Joiners

There's these little metal strips holding the batteries together. Those come off, too!

Step 4: Done!!

You'll end up with about 6.

Step 5: But What Are These Good For?

aaaa batteries are interchangeable with most aaa battery roles. They're also smaller, and lighter. (Note, not all 9 volt batteries contain these. I know for sure Energizer and Duracell do).

4A batteries can be difficult to find, this will allow various things to be re-used without having to hunt down and pay OTT prices

Two things: 1) Not all 9v batteries are like this, some stack some weird format vertically. 2) AAAA are definitely less capacious than AAA.
