This is a new product development, and is not yet (5 Dec 2008) available as a product.
The Snaps used on the common 9 Volt battery are also used on many other
devices such as battery holders. The 10 AA Battery holder is part
of the 68BA
battery adapter and provides 10 to
15 Volts when Alkaline cells are used and 12 to 14 Volts when Ni-MH
cells are used. This is a "12 Volt" supply and is very compatible
with the ARES configuration of the Power Pole
Two of the 10 AA battery holders fit into the 5590BA ver 2 Battery Adapter
so this S-PP adapter allows for an easy connection.
This adapter would also be handy if you wanted to power a Power Pole device that did not draw a lot of current.
If you have an interest in this adapter let me know
The 9 Volt Battery Snaps are used in a number of other PRC68 products such as the:
- 68BA Battery Adpater for the PRC-68 Family of Squad radios and other equipment that uses the same BB-588 type battery.
- The Battery Top type of product (in development) also used the 9 Volt Snaps. These include the:
They are installed using custom tooling with a hand press
. This makes for a very reliable and strong connection with a minimum of labor.
Possible 9 Volt Snap products include a 45 Volt Battery Stick. This printed
circuit board would have snaps to hold 5 each 9 Volt batteries wired in
series to provide 45 Volts. These can be connected in series to
make batteries of higher voltages such as 90, 135, 180, etc. If
you are interested in the 45 V Stick or have an idea for another 9 Volt Snap product let me know
created 5 Dec 2008.
