Battery Holder - 1xAA (PTH)

PCB mount clip to hold a AA battery. Sold in single units, you'll need two. These work great for small, low power applications that need a battery to run. Low cost and easy to use!

Battery Holder - 1xAA (PTH) Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Soldering

This skill defines how difficult the soldering is on a particular product. It might be a couple simple solder joints, or require special reflow tools.

1 Soldering

Skill Level: Noob - Some basic soldering is required, but it is limited to a just a few pins, basic through-hole soldering, and couple (if any) polarized components. A basic soldering iron is all you should need.

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.

1 Electrical Prototyping

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

  • I looked at this part in the Sparkfun parts bin in Fritzing and the space between the clips seems too big. Will batteries fit correctly in this?

  • They actually have "spring" effect (just solder them at a slightly smaller distance; I took measures using actual batteries).
    I only wish they were breadboard-friendly...

  • I find this holder to be not super reliable. Contacts are lost from time to time, in my opinion because of the lack of a spring. If you need 2xAA batteries in your project, I would recommend the more reliable PRT-09547 battery holder. It is also cheaper [PCB area cost as well].

Snapped right in

I made a PCB on Fritzing and these suckers just snapped in like they belonged there. Um... and they hold a battery.
