A simple battery clip that holds one C, D, AA or AAA battery. This clip is probably more usefull to include in your designs than to print one on its own.


Choose the battery type you need in the openscad file clip.scad, export to stl, slice and print. I used PLA at 210°, 0.4 mm layer height.

Thread some bared wire through the holes to make the electrical connection to the battery.

The file clip2.scad describes a clip for two AA batteries. It simply consists of two instances of the single battery clip that overlap in the middle.

Hi holgero. I wanted to let you know I published a derivative work of your holder on YouMagine:


Thanks for sharing your design!

Thanks for using it and thank you for the notice!

batteryClip(19,68,2); for a 18650 batteryholder ;)

Printed the clip2.stl again, this time with ABS at 0.3 mm layer height. With ABS I was able to turn of that cool plug-in of skeinforge and print it much faster. Also ABS seems to be better for this task as it's more elastic.

But the contacts were better with PLA. But a bit more wire fixed that :-).

This is great! Thank you!
