Rechargeable batteries holder by misty_soul Aug 4, 2012

Description

A small holder for round rechargeable batteries (AA, AAA ...).

The openscad file is parametric, you can change diameters, height, number of rows and columns, walls thickness, size of the push-through hole, presence of the rectangular frame or not.... There are no specific parameters for the slope of the top side, but it is easy to change by looking into the scad file.

Note the diameter for the AAA batteries is a tight fit, you may want to increase it slightly. There are holes at the bottom of the cells, so you can use something to push the batteries through if they are to tightly held.

The current version of the file has been simplified and the half rows at bottom and top have been reduced, so the pictures do not represent exactly the last version. The rectangular frame can be ignored by setting the with-frame parameter to false.

The very short honeycomb module can surely be reused elsewhere.

Thanks for the trick, Thav!

When printing my AA set I wanted an equal number of cells in each row (trying to keep pairs together), so I deleted the i%2 parts of the equation in every for loop calculating j from columns.

Thanks, I appreciate the effort. It didn't work. Ok, I had to delete the // from the AA section. Now it does. Looks great. I'll make some time this afternoon to print it out!

I would print this except...I'd rather have just the honeycomb without the rectangle. Don't have the time right now to study your scad file, working on a project too. If you can change it easily to just a honeycomb, I do have the time to start a print. ;)

Hi Arvin,

I have simplified the scad file and added a with_frame parameter. You can now set this parameter to false so you get only the honeycomb. Note that you will still have a bottom. If you don't want the bottom either, the simplest thig to do would be to get only the honeycomb module at the start of th
e file. This module is only a few lines long and is now self-sufficient.
