8 AA Battery Holder with Switch
Make Your Own External Battery Pack
Make a portable power brick with plenty of juice! Use eight AA's for a 12V power supply, or rechargeable batteries for a 9.6V supply. Either one is good for running electronics that have a 5V voltage regulator (thus requiring a 7V+ supply) or perhaps some motors or solenoids. Use at 12v to power stand alone LED controllers that need a 12V input.
Cells are wired in series which gives 8-times the voltage of a single cell. This battery holder box can be used in toys, RC cars, lighted decorations, electronics projects, or anywhere else where you need to have 9.6V-12V of DC power.
Perfect for portable Arduinos, motors, solenoids, 12V LED strips, etc. An On/Off switch lets you control the power right at the source without unplugging. Connection lead measure 15cm (6-inch) with a 2.1mm x 5.5mm male barrel jack. Batteries not included.
