It seems like every time I build an electronic kit I start by salvaging/cannibalizing a battery housing from a previous project.
So I thought I'd make my own design so I could just print them out when I want one. However, I'm not very happy with the result.
I started it with the best intentions but as I was finishing it I realized that it was WAY to complex. A much simpler model would work just as well, probably print faster and be easier to modify.
So I'm really posting this up with a request:
Somebody please make a better one!
I'll make a new version and post it up here when it's finished but I cant be the only person who uses these things...
This design is untested.
The spring connectors at each end have grooves in them for a wire to threaded to make the contact.

So what's this mean?
We're sure whowhatwhere would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
