Paper Power Pouches

Battery pouches made from paper, plastic and fabric are quick to make and are a cheap alternative to commercially available options. Copper tape and conductive fabric work great as conductors and some squishy foam or fabric, or else some flat magnets, help achieve a reliable contact between your pouch conductors and the contacts of your batteries.

    oh my god!

    I find nothing so frustrating as paying/waiting for pesky but incredibly necessary battery holders.
    Genius, is there a pdf of the other designs?

    When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment. Is there an easy method you are able to remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

    Loved all the options. Can you tell me the kind of plastic (manufacturer, wgt, etc) that you use? US suppliers would be appreciated. Is there a pdf for this tutorial with stencils? Have already made and used the paper battery holder- works very well but wanted to try plastic. I own the Silhouette vinyl cutter which I think would work with thin plastic sheet- hopefully.
