Here’s another addition to our growing family of AA battery holders. A holder for three (3) 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.
This battery holder connects 3 AA batteries together for powering all kinds of projects. Three AA’s add up to about 3.6-4.5V, a very similar range to Lithium Ion/polymer (Li-Ion) batteries. That makes them ideal for use with 3.3V projects. (Of course, you can’t recharge them like Li-Ion/Polys, so don’t try to plug this into one of our Li-Ion/Poly charger boards!)
Power cable is 200mm long with a DC jack with 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.
