Description: This 2xAA 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 are terminated with a JST-XH (2.50mm pitch) connector.
Note: This battery holder is NOT compatible with the micro:bit. The micro:bit, Arduino Pro, and other boards utilize a JST-PH connector, not a JST-XH like this product has. We should have a micro:bit compatible battery pack available soon.
Dimensions: 67.9 x 32.8 x 18.25mm

NOTE: this JST connector is series -XH (2.50mm pitch) it will NOT FIT into a standard JST-PH connector (2.00mm) like the through-hole connector (PRT-09749 ROHS) sold by sparkfun. The holder is OK-GOOD, switch seems solid, but I rated 3 stars since the JST spec is not given in the description, and there should be a JST-PH version available of this battery holder. I couldn’t use this in my application…
I’m sorry. You’re right, this connector doesn’t match our other JSTs. I’ll add a note to the product page to designate the JST type. Thank you for the information.

Unfortunately, I am not the end user of this product so I couldn’t provide a valuable feed back. I only process the ordering for my Newark.
