  • Perfect companion for my Arduino

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It's lightweight and easy to fit on your projects. The cable is just the right length to connect it to the Arduino and don't geting in the middle.

    Cons: It feels cheap. It's not quality plastic (but it's more than enough for what it is anyway). The price is a bit over what it should, but this holder it's convenient and worth it.

    Other: It's very useful when you don't want to power the Arduino from the PC.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Support easy and practical to use external power 0-6 batteries. Excellent quality material, features plug in perfect condition. Used both as external power Arduino, but can also be used in various other projects depend plug it requires. Surely if aver any doubt about the provenance of the material I guarantee that the product is of high quality.

    Cons: There is some defect in the product mentioned that we consider serious, but I can mention here only tone board, to provide more products because the country where I am it is hard to find product. You can also change the plugs, providing customers a greater variety to buy the product.

    Other: Works perfectly with the Arduino, it is necessary for an external power supply, providing a sense of finished project because, when using the product will not be necessary to feed the Arduino via USB cable.

  • very useful

    posted by Jumboman on 03:40:16 G8T 25/08/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: This is very useful if you have a power-demanding arduino project. 9v batteries tend to run out fast, while this battery block can last much longer. plus, it's easier to use rechargeable batteries. the 2.1mm jack is already attached so you can't use it as an external power supply for e.g. a DC motor. or you'd have to cut the cables.

    Cons: doesn't have an on/off switch, which would be very useful.

    Other: for this price, it's a product I wouldn't do without. would buy again.

  • great and cheap! perfect for my arduino mega

    posted by Natecobb on 03:58:59 G6T 11/06/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: dc connector fits great, and the plastic is super strong around the case. i couldn't find a dc battery pack for my arduino at radio shack and this seemed a bit too good to be true but i ordered it anyway to California. got it in a few weeks and i have been using it ever since. Love it!

    Cons: none

    Other: cheap, works great, sturdy construction. Get a few, wont break the bank and well worth it!

    posted by Backmann1 on 12:07:54 G6T 03/06/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: A very nice battery box that makes it very easy to suppy power (7,2 volt) to arduino or other products that requiers this kind of supply. It's cheap. It arrived only 13 days after full shipment was announced.

    Cons: No cons yet. It seams quit durable and strong.

    Other: Very nice feature that it comes with the 2,1/5,5 mm dc plug that fits Arduino and a lot of other gadgets. And it's cheap.

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: I've now got two of these. They're intended for Arduino computer boards with this type of power socket, such as Arduino Uno R3 (DX sku 120464). Fill this up with six AA cells and have fun.

    Cons: The wires are a bit thin, so be gentle. Not really a problem. You will still want the AC adapter too (DX sku 126288).

    Other: Buy it. Do I have five hundred characters yet? :-) Do I have five hundred characters yet? :-) Do I have five hundred characters yet? :-) Do I have five hundred characters yet? :-)

  • Solid product, watch the mounting holes.

    posted by 1Roddy on 06:19:43 G1T 03/01/2013 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Solidly built. Good spring tension to maintain contact, but so much as to crack the housing. Connector is soldered on, not molded, so it can be removed and replaced or reused easily. Arrived quickly (for DX!) I ought extras because they are so cheap.

    Cons: Unit does NOT come with mounting screws. Usually not a problem to grab a couple out of the bins and go, but in this situation a 'normal' screw will have a large enough head that it will prevent the batteries in the end positions from seating properly. This will cause them to pop out, this will of course happen at the worst possible time! You may need to file down the heads on your screws, or use double sided tape to hold the battery holder in place.

    Other: If you need a nine volt power source for a project, buy a couple, now if only there was a source for economical, good quality AA batteries.

  • Works as expected

    posted by grpires on 13:36:06 G12T 27/12/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: It is very simple: just place the batteries on the holder and connect it to the Arduino. No rocket science. Perfect for running your Arduino standalone projects, losing the dependency of USB cables and notebooks/netbooks to show your project to your friends

    Cons: Wires are too thin. You have got to be careful not to tear them apart. Also, I have experienced a little problem with the black rubber near the power jack, where it got out of position.

    Other: It works just as expected. Buy it if you want your Arduino working standalone.

  • Justo lo que necesitaba.

    posted by cuzcatleco on 09:13:11 G12T 26/12/2012 certificated customer

    Involvement Level: Expert (understands the inner workings)

    Pros: Muy buen portabaterias, justo lo que necesitaba en mis proyectos de mini robotica con ARDUINO, y aun buen precio. Ya que si habrán notado alimentar le arduino uno o mega con cuatro baterías AA no es suficiente para algunas placas driver de motores. Adema el regulador de voltaje interno del arduino necesita al menos 6 voltios o mas para funcionar correctamente.

    Cons: Realmente ninguna, tal vez un poco mas largas los cables de conexión.

    Other: Ademas, frente a una sola batería de 9v, esta la cuestión de la potencia y duración de las 6 AA.
