Emergency Button-battery Clip

Introduction: Emergency Button-battery Clip


Ever have one of those days when you get a circuit together on your breadboard and realize the only battery you have is a button battery and no battery holder?   So you break out your tape and start taping the wire to the battery.   Make an emergency battery clip instead!

Materials:

Plastic clips (I got mine at the dollar store)
Wire (Thick enough so it stays in place when bent.  I'm using 22 guage)
Drill
Glue gun

Step 1: Drill the Holes

First you want to drill two holes in the clip. One on each side.

Step 2: Add the Wire

Run the wire through the holes and bend it up.  Allow clip to close to hold it in place.  

Step 3: Glue It

Now apply hot glue to the inside and outside of the clip so the wire stays in place.

Step 4: Test It

Now test it with a button cell battery.
