This battery holder accepts 4x AA batteries and features a USB (female) output giving you a different way to power your project compared to traditional battery holders. The onboard switch allows convenient power control and the slide-out top cover makes it quick and easy to change batteries.
In terms of voltage, AA batteries are usually available in 1.2V (rechargeable/carbon-zinc) or 1.5V (alkaline), meaning this USB battery holder can offer between 4.8V and 6V depending on which battery chemistry is used and their condition.
You may be able to use this with your 5V development board if it allows a wide input range, however we think this might be better for powering simpler circuits and projects. Perhaps combine with a USB breakout cable or simply splice one of your old unwanted cables at home?
We also offer a 3x AA version which is good for 3.6V to 4.5V.
