Step 1: The Body

Cut the neck of the PET bottle. Make it with the abrasive paper or the box cutter. You need 4 neck for a battery. Cut a 4cm*8cm rectangle from the PET body. Make a cylinder from it. Pull on the necks to the cylinder and glue.

Step 2: The Tops

Make a hole on the battle tops. Put over the wire and soldering the battery contacts. Glue the contacts to the tops – just in case. Put on the battey and it is done. I use it for a headlamp,a flashlight and a bicycle lamp. If you use enough hot glue it is waterproof.

Great idea. I have been looking at those Vruzend battery caps but I need a small number of battery holders. Yours are very doable and cheap. I,ll let you know how I make out. I love cheap and using recycling waste bottles.

Great idea. Sure beats throwing them loose into a box like I usually. I am going to have to try this.
