Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery Box I bought 2 of these 6AA Battery Boxes to power small led light units. They were delivered promptly and are sturdy and well made. The AA batteries fit well and stay quite firmly in place. They do exactly what I wanted so am very pleased with my purchase.

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.
