AAAA 1.5 Volt batteries

This tip is handy if you require a small 1.5 Volt battery which doesn't cost you an arm or a leg.

I found it by coincidence while blowing up a 9 Volt battery.

The Energizer and Duracell 9 Volt batteries are made of 6 AAAA cells of 1.5 Volts each which can be used to power small electronic projects.

These cells are just a little smaller than the common AAA cell ( see attached YouTube video in which I made a comparison with AAA and AA cells )

I seen this sort of thing before.

It's not true with Nicad 9V batteries, they're made with lots of button cells layed on top of each other.

AAAA cells have almost half the weight of AAA cells and have half the capacity.

Colin : True, i did a search on Youtube and there are a few battery hack clips on it.

Audioguru : Correct, but they are cheaper than these little 1.5 Volt button cells.
