9 volt battery container
« on: Nov 14, 2016, 08:12 PM »
Hey Vods

Any good ideas on something that can be attached to the inside of a bucket that can hold a 9 volt battery in place? I can always cover the battery in velcro, but thats a lot of velcro to keep throwing away eventually.....

Thanks!

Yup.  What are the dimensions of the board?   I'd say look for something like this:  http://www.boxenclosures.com/category/product_details.html?product__id=258655


Search term for it is "9v battery project enclosure" and you can find them in all sorts of sizes, depending on how big the board is.  that will fit the board and the battery in one little box.  If that ends up being too big or you want them separate so one can be in the belt pouch or something, just google the dimensions and "project enclosure"  like "4x9 project enclosure" or something like that.

You could also probably use an altoids tin. Just use electrical tape or something similar on the inside to make sure it's insulated. This would be really good for wire management.

If you don't need a lot of access to the board once installed, you can put heatshrink tubing over the entire thing to protect it from sweat/hair and hotglue it in place

Depending on the board, this might cause it to overheat.

That's true, but if its a small solid state circuit inside the bucket heat may not be a big issue. If it is an amp or a power board, shy away from the tubing.
