Here’s another addition to our growing family of AA battery holders. A holder for four (4) AA batteries! It’s got an 8″ long power cable with a 2.1mm DC jack at the end, 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 can run with ~4.8V (4 x NiMH) to ~6V (4 x Alkaline). Great for powering boards with a ~4.5-6.5V DC input allowance as you’ll see that range depending on how fresh the batteries are.
DC plug is 5.5mm OD, 2.1mm ID with center-positive polarity.
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.
