Intro: Easy Film Can AA Battery Holder
Simple Film Canister Battery Holder
Fat Cat was complaining he didn't have any AA battery holders for just one battery. So we came up with this. It is really easy to make and took very little time.
Step 1: Materials
Materials that we used. In one picture we forgot the glue dots and the other we forgot the battery. Silly us!
Film Canister With Inside Closing Lid (Fuji Style)
Hot Glue Gun
Wire (we used tabbing)
Step 2: Drill
Drill a hole into bottom side of canister.
Drill a hole through the lid rim. Continue straight through the center of the one side of the cap (just half way through the entire lid).
Step 3: Glue
Add a glue dot to the inside of the lid and the inside of the film canister. Center best you can.
You can try to put a tiny dot with a glue gun. Just be careful to not use to much as it will insulate your wire.
Step 4: Add Wire
Add wire to the bump out on the lid.
Center wire through the middle of the lid.
Push wire onto glue dot.
Add wire to bottom side of canister.
Center wire through the middle of the canister.
Push down wire onto glue dot.
Step 5: Cut Wire
Cut wire to desired length.
Step 6: Glue Holes
Glue over any holes. Gluing will help hold the wires in place and may keep water out.
Step 7: Add Battery
Now add your AA battery to the canister negative side down ( - ).
Put the battery close as possible to the center of the canister. Hopefully the glue dot will help.
Line the positive side ( + ) with the bump out on lid.
Step 8: It Works!
We tried rechargeable batteries and Duracell and they fit perfect.
