NEW PRODUCT – Waterproof 3xAA Battery Holder with On/Off Switch

Window-184
NEW PRODUCT – Waterproof 3xAA Battery Holder with On/Off Switch. Keep your power source safe and toasty in these waterproof 3xAA battery holders. They’re just like classic switched battery holders, but designed for survival! The case has a rubber gasket around the edge of the case (its black and hard to see in the photos but it is there) and attaches together with 4 machine screws. What we like about this design is that the hexnuts are captive in one side and you can assemble/disassemble as many times as you need. There’s a potted power switch and a rubber-boot on-off switch (press to turn on/off). Use with any alkaline or rechargeable batteries for about 4.5V output.

Would work great with our waterproof DC power plugs (just use heatshrink to waterproof the solder connections)

Window-2-61
The power cable wires are not polarity marked, use any multimeter to verify the polarity during use.

  • Weight: 36 grams

  1. Is there space in the area where the switch is located to place any user components? It looks like it might be large enough to fit a ATTiny or other small MCU.
