This panel-mount 9V battery holder is perfect for projects where you have limited panel space but still need to get to your battery to change it. Simply install this battery drawer and your 9V battery will hide out of harms way. Mounts with two screws in the front (not included) and wires in with two solder tabs on the back.
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 built a custom wood enclosure for my Meeblip Micro atmega digital synth. The laser etched front panel is attached with wood screws, so I'd have a limited number of times I'd be able to open the case before the holes are stripped out. I mounted this on the back panel and now I don't have to open the case to replace the battery.
These are great, easy to install. Draw the rectangular shape where it's to be installed, then drill within the rectangle. Use a file to make the rounded edges (corners) square.
I build a lot of arduino based geocaching projects in smallish boxes. This vertical positioning of the battery is perfect for those projects that have limitied space within the box.
I hope they build one for 4 AA cells next. . . and then 6 AA's.
