Battery Holders - (8) AA & 23A
We've all had those installs that we've avoided due to the wiring it would need. Sometimes wiring 6 feet through a baseboard for some lighting isn't viable. It's okay, we understand. Why not install a quick & easy power pack of (8) AA Batteries instead? Tight space, or remote area for an installation? Our mini 23A packs a punch of power, 12V ready, with less than half the size of a AA battery.
Have a quick, or remote install that only needs to be there for a couple of days, maybe even hours? Our battery packs are the surefire answer!
Battery holder does not come with batteries. The batteries are available separately.
How long will the battery last?
First, figure out how many amps (or mA) the items you're powering draws.
The average heavy duty alkaline battery (Duracell, Energizer, etc) will provide about 2000 mAh. 2000 mAh = 2 amp hours. Which means for 1 hour, it can power about 2 amps. Or for 10 hours, it can power about 200 mA.
This is of course highly simplified, but you can use it as a general rule of thumb. Its best to test the batteries with your project first to make sure it will work as intended.
Generally, you can use these batteries to power a handful of LEDs, small LED strips or tubes.
You probably shouldn't try to power really long LED strips, Cathodes, nor EL wire which draws too much power.

Powers all the LEDs (8) in my kid's Power Wheel!!!

Installed on my three year old's pink Mustang Power Wheel. Photos are available in the photo gallery under Power Wheels.
I installed six Prewired Superflux Chip LEDs in the rear, a High Intensity Flush Mount LED Bolt (3w, 11mm, stainless steel, cool white, no lens) in each headlight, a blue round rocker switch and a 12v battery holder to power the unit. I also used a 3/4" bit, strippers, pliers and crush connectors. I had to drill a hole in the "dash" for the switch, a couple holes to mount lights, a couple holes throughout the body and zip ties to hold some stuff in place.
Took about four hours total, but would go much faster the second time since I included design time into the total time. Estimate two hours to redo this if I did it again.
My kids love it. Doubles as a safety feature and with my kids playing at night, it let's them out later.....and the other kids jealous.
I highly recommend this battery pack. Compact, easy to install/use and powered 8 LEDs plus rocker switch in the Power Wheel.
