Broken 4.5 volt battery box.

Recommended Posts

Hello, I recently bought a bulk lot and to my surprise found a 4.5 battery box. I have a motor to go with it which is great, but inside the box it’s missing one metal contact. I am thinking of soldering but that might melt the plastic. Any ideas?

btw the contact is circled in red in the photo.

I would repair that by using a short popsicle stick to span the area the contact should be. I could affix a spring or something metal to the popsicle stick to make contact with the battery. Then solder a wire from the new spring to the backside of the tab it should go to. You could solder on that curved portion of the tab without melting the plastic. Good luck!

Thanks, good idea. I will try not to mess up. :grin:
