I want to use this box to charge batteries, do I need to make up a charge lead with s PP3 connector?

This 6 AAA battery holder holds 6x1.5v batteries which totals 9 v Could you just not use a 9v battery and would it be the same and do the same job.

Asked by: Dave
While it is true that you would get the same output voltage, the average capacity of a 9V battery is 200mAh, while a AAA cell is 700-900mAh. Connecting the AAA cells in series would give you the 9V battery at the higher capacity leading to a longer operational lifespan.

Does this generate output from the 6 AAs in parallel or in series?

Asked by: BRR1

There is a pair of power connectors as an outlet. Is this for PP3 or PP9 style battery connectors?  Is there a way to secure this battery box to the chassis?

Asked by: brianp
The connectors are for a PP3 clip the item has no mounting holes.
