Battery Holder - 2xAA (JST-PH)

This is a unique two-cell AA battery holder. The 6" (~150mm) cable has been terminated with a JST-PH connector.

We used to recommend using this battery pack with the BBC micro:bit but due to inconsistent JST connector sizes from our supplier (just enough for it to get stuck), we no longer do. If you are looking for a battery pack that is a bit easier to plug and unplug from your micro:bit, we recommend picking up the AAA-sized version instead!

Note: Please keep in mind that JST connectors are not suited for constant and repeated removal and insertions and may wear out over time.

    I bought this for my first micro:bit. Not worth the time wasted just to unplug it because of the two protruding bits on the connector. I'll use other power alternatives instead.

      Just a bit larger than 2 AA batteries. Kidding... the one at my desk is roughly ~2.25" x 1.25" :p. If you need more exact dimensions, let us know.
