9V Battery Holder

This 9V battery holder allows your battery to snap in tight and holds it in place, which is great in situations where you don't want the battery just hanging. It also has three mounting holes so you can attach it securely to your enclosure.

It is terminated with a standard 5.5x2.1mm, center-positive barrel jack.

Let's ramp up our GPS tracking skills with KML files and Google Earth. We'll make a tracker that logs location and allows us to visualize our steps with Google Earth.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.

Skill Level: Noob - You don't need to reference a datasheet, but you will need to know basic power requirements.

  • The mounting holes are not tapped. Measuring with a caliper, it looks to be about 2.10mm.

    Hello, I have two questions about this Holder. What are its dimensions especially holes sizes and distances between them? Will it be good for arduino UNO power supply?

  • In case anyone needs it, this looks like the right datasheet: http://www.memoryprotectiondevices.com/datasheets/BH9VPC-datasheet.pdf

    • Spork / about 11 years ago / 1

      The "BH9VPC" product described in the data sheet doesn't have a barrel jack. Instead, it has two leads out the bottom, spaced .5 inches. I was looking for something I could use on a PCB -- the BH9VPC looks just about perfect and is available on DigiKey. So, thanks for posting that link!

    Sweet. One of these, a couple rechargeable and a charger would make for a much more compact and simple system than AAs or even LiPo bars and chargers.

not as depicted

Once again, SF delivers a product that is not accurately portrayed. I ordered a bunch recently; all are missing the last 2 inches of insulation. This is a deal-breaker for my application. Yeah, I could beef it up myself. But the point is that you should deliver what you depict. C'mon SF.

If you look in the second photo (box detail) at the top near the wire, you can see that this gap was depicted in the original image. It's just not very easy to notice.

Hi, Sorry for the change in part. You are right, these are now shipping with about 2 inches of wire from the box end showing before the main shielding starts.

Does what it is supposed to.

Holds 9V battery securely, connects to and powers Arduino board. Don't know what else one would want from it.

Great holder, if a bit tight.

Great battery holder, solid construction and wires. Only complaint is the tab at the bottom - it broke on one of my holders and with the tab there, 9V batteries are very difficult to remove. But on the other hand, it's also nice to know that the battery isn't going anywhere - especially if you have a mobile project or if it gets dropped.
