Battery Box


J

John

My gas fire has a plastic box with 4 AA batteries - alongside each other -
the lead out is via the press-stud arrangement that is the same as found on
a 9volt PP9 battery. The plastic has succumbed to the heat and the pressure
of the contact springs so I need a new one. I have looked on Maplins site
and they don't seem to have one with the same (all lying flat) configuration
which I need to enable it to stow in the recess.

Any other sources you can recommend?

Arte you sure it's really the large PP9 connector, and not the small PP3
one?

I thought it was £5.95 unless you order over £40 or something similar.
Eh? The battery box costs 50p + VAT so the postage at £5.95 + VAT is abit
of sting...
