This 3xAA battery holder puts a nice finishing touch on your battery powered project. This holder features a removable, sliding cover, which is secured with a small phillips head screw. Another bonus is the ON/OFF switch which can be used to control power to your project.
The leads are about 150mm, and the last 5mm of them are tinned.
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.

I ordered a batch of these and they were of surprisingly bad quality. On a number of these, the plate did not touch the center battery and I had to bend it to get it to make a connection. I use these in my summer science camp and at some point, most fail either because there is no good connection to the center battery and because the switches fail. I wish sparkfun would get a better supplier. I would happily pay a little more for something that I can plan my camps around.
