Introduction: How to Make Battery Holder

About: Hello Guys, I am techgenie, an Electronics hobbyists, tech tinker and developer. I dedicate my free time in designing and making various creative and innovative projects, RC toys, Incredible Gadgets, Awesome L…

A battery holder is like a plastic case with the shape of the housing moulded in such a way that a battery can be easily inserted inside it. A Battery holder is a necessity for every DIY hobbyist as it is used in almost every project.

In this instructable, i decided to make a simple AA battery holder using just a few easily available materials. This method can be used to make a battery holder for various different types and size of batteries.

Step 1: Watch the Video

A video is a very great tool that makes any tutorial easy to understand. However, also visit next steps for additional details.

Step 2: Order Parts

Step 3: Make a Box

  1. Using a stationary knife, carefully cut both the curved edges from the ice cream stick.
  2. Depending on the size of the battery, paste few sticks together using hot glue.
  3. Mark and cut the sticks, depending on battery size and make the boundary on all the four sides.
  4. Cut the extra length of all the sticks to make a box for fitting the battery.

Step 4: Add Connectors

  1. Make a slit at one of the shorter side of the box.
  2. Using Hot glue, paste a battery connector in the slit as can be seen in the images above.
  3. Fold a piece of food wrapping aluminium foil and using hot glue paste it on the opposite side of the connector.
Note: Make sure to fold the aluminium foil such that the half part of the folded piece is thicker than the other half, so that when the AA batteries (with notch at '+ve' terminal) are inserted, the thickness of the foil accommodates the distance between the '+ve' and '-ve' battery terminal.

Step 5: Finish Battery Holder

Our DIY Battery holder is now complete. Insert the batteries in the holder and use it in any project at will. This technique can be used to make holders for many types of batteries (like 9v batteries, AA, AAA, 18650 cells and much more) and is much more economical than any other plastic battery holder available in the market.

    Wood ones are harder to make, but are sturdier. :)


    Tip 2 years ago

    Yes, that's right but with 9v battery you don't need any clips because it already has clips over it. However, you can use the wooden case as ice cream holder.


    Tip 2 years ago

    By flipping the clip around, you could have a 9v batery holder.
