Thanks! It's perfect for AA batteries for my flashlight.

These are awesome!! I've already printed 5, everybody who sees them love the idea. I can see some thought went into this design.Looking forward to the AAA version.
Thanks for all the effort much appreciated!

made 3, awesome design. is there one for single stack and another for AAA?

Sounds awesome! I'll be looking forward to it.

Thanks for the input. I thought about making an end piece but I realized that you don't need really need it. Just remove the link with 2 empty spots. My next revision will likely put a stop at the top (and also on the other side so all 4 have top and bottom covers) so batteries would be clipped in and not pushed down.

Maybe add a link without the triangle back pieces so it could end the chain with a link that has the stops on the bottom.
That and put an indent in the bottom of the stops to fit over the nub on the battery.

You're welcome. i thought of the bullet links first but I didn't want intersecting rings. I'm frankly surprised this has not already been done. It finally came to me a couple nights ago. there are 3 different revisions in the picture and 9 revisions that were done. I think I might cap the top as well as the bottom the next time I open the file. Any input is appreciated.

This is very similar to how the bullet chain links function! I see this design being edited quite a bit. Thank you very much for this. I plan on using it soon.
