Here’s another addition to our growing family of AA battery holders. Behold! A holder for four (4) AA batteries! It’s got a 5″ long power cable with a 5.5/2.1mm DC jack at the end, an On/Off switch, and, oh yes, it’s in classy Adafruit black.
4 x AA battery packs are best used with development boards with 2.1mm DC jacks and are happy with ~4.8V (4 x NiMH) to 6V (4 x Alkaline).
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
