1 minute hackjob: bicycle light battery [en]

dimanche, octobre 30th, 2011

I needed a battery to power the front light of my bicycle last night, here is my solution. You will need:

  • A 4,5V flashlight battery
  • A zip tie
  • An adhesive pad for the zip tie
  • A nose pliers

  • Bend the battery terminals in two, crimp the hinge area.
  • Slightly lift the free side to facilitate the insertion of a wire
  • Attach the adhesive pad to the battery, slide the zip tie in the pad and attach the whole contraption to the bicycle
  • Insert the wires in the clamps you made earlier: let there be light. 🙂
If you can’t find the adhesive zip tie pad, you can still use the good old fashioned duct tape. 🙂
