As per the subject line I'm looking for an enclosure with a built in battery holder, including removable cover, along with enough room to install my actual project.


If you make a nice working device it seems a shame that a screwdriver needs to come out every time you want to change the batteries, not to mention the challenges of securing a battery holder inside the case so it doesn't just rattle around.


Anyone aware of such a device? Looking to fit either 4x AA or AAA.

Something like this:




Pretty pricey though.


There's some cheaper ones on EBay but the shipping costs are horrendous.

The three hardest things to say: 1. I was wrong, 2. I need help, 3. Worcestershire sauce.

You've got some good googling skills, I found nothing at all. It's a start though.

Try Jaycars - they have a number of grey boxes.

Jaycar HB-5610 Sure it only takes 2X AA or a 9V battery. But plenty of cheap boost converter circuits available cheaply on Aliexpress if you need 5V or 6V to run your circuit.  Or get something like the PH-9282 and attach it to the side of another enclosure if the first one is not big enough.
