here i'll show you how to make 9 volt battery clips out of old nine volt batterys.

Step 1: Gathering the Supplies and Tools

Ok you will need

- a dead 9 volt battery (I have never used anything but energizer 9 volts so please use caution when using other brands)
- 2 6" pieces of wire
- a soldering iron
- solder
- soldering flux
- 60 grit sand paper
- hot glue
- acid brush
- pliers

Lets get started!
<p>BEWARE!!!!!!! I was trying to fix a child's toy using this Instructable and after peeling the cover off the battery it ruptured and shot out a small post. This could have easily blinded me in one eye or my husband. The projectile landed in the next room and the battery made a loud popping sound. I will never do this again and I do not recommend anyone do this. Go to Radio Shack and buy a connector. Sorry if this was not a &quot;nice&quot; comment.</p>
I took woodshop in middle school the first rule was ALWAYS where safety for your eyes... When the battery popped for me it hit me in the googles ironic that I was wearing them and that's where it hit me.
I'm very sorry for your bad experience. I have personally done this many times and have never punctured any of the cells on the inside of the 9 volt battery. I'm still not quite sure how that was done as the only side that has to be peeled away from the connector is the very top (This is specified in step 2). This was originally posted as a way for people to recycle their discharged 9 volt battery into something that can be used for a number of different projects. Again I'm very sorry for your experience and I hope it won't keep you from trying other projects like this one.
<p>I only peeled off enough of the top to slip out the connectors, BUT, it wasn't a dead battery. I am disabled so I don't get to the store easily. I knew using a new battery was not cost effective, but I was curious to see if this worked. Perhaps an emphasis in the instructions that it is important that one only use a dead battery would be important. I wondered, as I was peeling, if there was anything dangerous about what I was doing. Can't say I am very experienced with batteries or electronics. Thankfully the mini-explosion was delayed and the battery was lying on the table as it popped. No damage done, but other novices might also try this tutorial and be injured--I might not be the only stupid person out there to do this on a new battery!! </p>
I've been wanting something like this! Very simple.....very usefule! Thanks.......REALLY!!!!
very useful!! i cant believe i just realized that its the exsact same thing just flipped... lol haha thx 4 sharing :D 5*
I don't know why this idea never occurred to me before. thanks.
