This a simple 9V battery pack/connector that allows you to power other projects or devices. It is particularly useful for powering Arduino’s or small circuits which require a 9V DC current. This print requires no glue to assemble. Just press the male ends of two jumper wires into their slots and slide in a battery, Then slide on the clip as shown in the pictures. Never buy a 9V connector again.


  • Holds the battery securely against the leads for a reliable connection.
  • To disconnect the battery from the circuit, simply slide the battery up. This disengages it from the leads, while still keeping it in place.
  • No glue required for assembly.

Note: Toleranced for a finely tuned Anet A8. If tolerances are too tight or too loose, try scaling the model by 0.5 – 1%.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
