45 Volt Stick (45VS)

Brooke Clarke 2010 - 2023

Background

17 Feb 2023 - Version 2 has the female 9V snaps turned 45 degrees because the vendor changed the product and no longer offers the earlier version.
5 June 2014 - New lower cost version
This one does not have provision for the large battery snaps, it just has small snaps for five 9V batteries.  This opens up room down the center for a buss that can be wired to either end so that you can chain a number of sticks to make 90 or higher voltage battery packs.  This also allows the printed circuit board to be the same size as the batteries allowing tight packing.

There are 4 mounting holes that will clear a No. 4 screw.

These are now for sale.  See my products for sale web page.

Eveready No. 455 - NEDA 201

There is a need to replace 45, 90, 180, etc. Volt dry batteries using common 9 Volt batteries and an adapter.  This is my first attempt at a 45 Volt stick.  It has been designed to allow connection of multiple sticks in series to get the higher voltages.  It also has large snaps on the top to emulate the 455 45 Volt battery electrically, but it is not physically the same size as the 455 battery.

There are narrow spots on the traces to each of the big snaps so that the snaps can be electrically isolated from the local batteries.  At the left and right side in the photo below there are jumper positions to allow a series connection of the sticks to make 90, 180, etc. voltage battery packs.

Technical problem with large snaps prevents this becoming a product.
