3 x AAA Battery Holder with On/Off Switch and 2-Pin JST

This battery holder connects 3 AAA batteries together in series for powering all kinds of projects. 3x AAA’s add up to about 3.3-4.5V, a very similar range to Lithium Ion/polymer (Li-Ion) batteries, and have an on-off switch. This makes them ideal for use with 3.3V projects that have a 2-pin JST connector meant for one of our Li-Ion/Poly batteries. (Of course, you can’t recharge them like Li-Ion/Polys, so DON’T try to plug this into one of our Li-Ion/Poly charger boards!)

Fits any standard AAA battery. When using rechargeable NiMH the output voltage will range from about 3.7V with charged batteries to 2.7V at the end of life with a nominal voltage of 3.6V. When using alkalines, the output will range from 4.6V with new batteries to 3.3V at the end of life with a nominal voltage of about 4.5V

Use this battery holder when you want to have rechargeable batteries with a BBC micro:bit as 2 x NiMH is not enough voltage to reliably run it, you need 3!

The polarity matches that of our 2-pin JST cable and Li-Ion/Poly batteries. Uses a genuine JST connector so it won’t ‘catch and tear’ in JST connectors.
