Wiring 9 volt batteries

Unread postAuthor: Shango » Thu Mar 06, 2008 7:13 pm

Iamb a newbie at spudguns and am going to build a pneumatic jobbie. I have to wire three 9 volt batts together. my question is how do you make the physical connection? I'm thinking solder, but wouldn't the heat ruin the batts?

Any help would be appreciated

oh wow...

you can just twist the wires on to the terminal or get a 9v Cap.

Heat wont ruin the battery, before it does that, itle explode.

I'd say forgo the batteries and just modify the sprinkler valve to actuate pneumatically. There's a how-to in the how-to section.

And yes, I'm assuming you're using a solenoid sprinkler valve for whatever you're building.
