If you want a battery box that would look at home at the cottage have a look at this Vintage 9 Volt Battery Box creation made by JingleJoe. Before you pass it by as a quick hack keep in mind that everything was custom made including the terminals.

"Here is one of my most recent creations, a "casemod" of sorts for a 9 volt battery. Made all but the terminals myself the terminals were made for me by a friend with a lathe, I aged and stained the wood myself and made my own stencil for number/letter the whole thing is about 8cm x 8cm."

    This is very nice. Looks like it would fit in very nicely with steampunk stuff. I like it.

    That is freakin’ awesome!
    Maybe it’s just me, but with all the extra space, I would add in a few more 9v batteries in parallel, just so that it have a nice long rugged life.

    How am I supposed to fit this in my smoke detector?

    🙂 that last post almost tipped me off my chair. anyways i really like this. i’m tempted to make some boxes like this for my favorite voltages. it wouldn’t be too hard to use some high capacity li-po’s with regulators and/or boost converters with a max1555 for charging. just damn stylish.

    […] JingleJoe decided to give the familiar PP3 battery a look more befitting the “strange electronic devices” he has in development. He built the above frankenstinian aged-wood case complete with custom lathed terminals! That right there is some impressive dedication to the aesthetic. He also shared some info regarding his aging technique – Bash the edges with the straight side of a hammer like this one to put grooves in it perpendicular to the edge, then bash it around a bit more with bricks and whatever bashy things you might happen to have, I used a screwdriver. Then sand the wood and stain it with a dark wood stain, maybe give it two coats, then sand the stain off a bit leaving it in grooves and nooks and crannies. for best results try to sand it off the corners and edges more than anywhere else. Then stain again 🙂 thats pretty much it!You’ll likely note a practical benefit as well if you’ve ever tried using alligator clips on a nine-volt’s positive terminal. Read more from his forum post.

    […] Our friend JingleJoe from England sure does a great job of making new old things. This is a modern power supply but you would never know that by glancing at it. If this is the first time looking at his work make sure you check out the old 9 volt battery box project. […]
