This battery box is designed for use as a switchable, portable power pack, and fits any four alkaline or rechargeable AA batteries in series.

The body is moulded in black ABS Resin and has a slide on detachable lid which can be locked for extra security through the use of a small provided screw. It even includes a very useful miniature on-off slide switch which is very handy for wiring to projects that don't have a switch! Connection is via two flexible stranded red (positive) & black (negative) 26AWG wire leads, which are approximately 150mm in length.

The four batteries are held in series, for an output of ~6V when using 1.5V alkaline cells, or ~4.8V when using rechargeable NiMH cells.

Using rechargeables will make this work nicely with most 5V projects (just make sure any 5V board has a regulator!). With alkalines, you may want to put a 1N4001 in series to drop the voltage from 6V down to 5.3V.
