Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 AA battery holder Good sturdy holder, does the job. I was able to convert it to a 2 AA holder as I wanted to drive LEDs for a model theatre automaton.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Battery Box I use this to hold batteries powering a bread board - holds the batteries well and does the trick. Not much more to say

Can this be used to suplly power to 5mm Blue LED Code: N22FN? With or without a resistor?

Asked by: DNE50
No, 3 AA batteries would give 4.5V whereas the LED needs 4V, so you would need to use a 25 - 28 ohm resistor on the positive leg of the LED, resistor linked below for you:

So using this product I should be able to put in three AA batteries producing 1.2 volts each, and get a total of 3.6 volts out through a connection similar to the studs on a 9 volt battery? (PP3)

Asked by: Scottie94
Yes this will work fine in your intended application.

Hi, Does this battery box come with the PP3 clip connection or do I need to buy that separately. Thank you
Asked by: J Cooper
The box has a PP3 fitting moulded to the outside to which you would attach your PP3 clip connector ( HF28F sold separately )
