Make a portable power brick with plenty of juice! Use Alkaline AA's for a 12V 3000-4000mAh power supply, or rechargeable NiMH for 2000mAh 9.6V supply. Either one is good for running electronics that have a 5V voltage regulator (thus requiring a 7V+ supply) or perhaps some motors or solenoids.

Perfect for portable Arduinos, motors, solenoids, 12V LED strips, etc. An On/Off switch lets you control the power right at the source without unplugging. Batteries not included, may or may not include screws.

    the service was excellent all information about delivery times emails was spot on and prompt fast delivery product was exactly as expected (Posted on 9/10/2017)

  2. Review by Chris verified purchaser

    Works great. The place where the cable is wired to the switch and battery terminals appears to be a sealed unit, so if you want to use a different plug, you need to cut off and replace the plug. (Posted on 25/04/2017)

    Haven't had any problems at all. Works fine.
    I'm using it to power an Adafruit Motor shield with 3 Stepper motors connected, and it works great. The on off switch is really handy. (Posted on 25/01/2014)
