Battery Compartment with contacts by obijuan Dec 8, 2010

Featured Thing!


This is a proof of concept. I have derived this object from the parameterized Battery compartment: thingiverse.com/thing:5051.

It is a Battery comparment for just 1 AAA battery. I have added two embedded nuts in contact with the positive and negative parts of the battery. From the outside, two metal screws are inserted. They will contact with the battery. Now, you have a wonderful electrical access to the battery!!

It works very well.

For the future, I am planning to add this feature to the original parameterized battery comparment.

Your idea is absolutely brilliant! :-) I think I'll have to release version 2 real soon, a commenter on my blog suggested to add support for cell-batteries

Thanks! Version 2 is coming. I have already written the parametric version. I have tested the idea with a 2-AAA-battery pack. It works like a charm ;-)

Now I am printing a 4-AAA battery pack.

I also think that supporting cell-batteries is a really good idea
