Looking for a REALLY small 9V battery

since Iīve got a "work in progress" HB-cocker, Iīm looking vor some specialised parts...

the main problem: I havenīt got any space in the frame left, so atm the battery has been moved to the bottle cover...

what I need is a really tiny battery that gives me enough power to use the gun all day long... preferably recharchable

yeah... I know


The gun uses an MQ2 and a ZeroB 1.10, but Iīm switching to the tadao as soon as itīs available.

Theya re all the same size. You could repackage a rechargable, but the cubic inches come out to be the same. I found the effort not worth it.

so thereīs no 9V recharchable with like 0.5*0.5*0.3 inches measurements? ever?


EDIT: maybe my first post is misleading... I donīt need a 9V thatīs just a little bit smaller... I need something the size of a AAA or even smaller...

I have not seen one. On guns that I built, instead of making a battery fit the frame (which I tried), I made the frame fit the battery. I found it easier to mill the frame to make more room for the battery and circuit board.

You can try a Li-Po battery custom pack. it would have to be 11.1 volts which is 3 cells and at least 800mah. It would be lightest rechageable option. You can also take some insperation from the e mag and make a foregrip battery holder and shove a reg in there and use the noid wire hole to route the wires.

hmm
any more infos about that custom LiPo? price? where to get? how big?
how dangerous would 11.1 V be for the board, any chances of frying it in the long run?

why not just get a timmy frame? it houses the board, battery, AND solenoid in there. only picky thing about it is that the frame isnt as flush to the gun's body as an eblade or so.

how about do something like the mini or e mags, move the battery to the foregrip. make some sort of custom cover for the reg and battery.

Battery
It will be expensive and you need a special charger. If it can run off about 8 volts you can go with a 7.2 volt pack. It will work well. Either way!

Oh and you can have them custom made for the project just look at the battery itself and how much it will cost if that wont fit.

But not for anyone running an mQ.

To the OP ... tried coin batteries? Not that great of a solution, I know.

A UTB might save you a lot of space, but probably not enough to fit a 9v.

Li-Po battery custom pack and put on a resistor to knock the voltage down. not too sure about the exact Ohms you would need to get it down to 9.6 or so volts. I think the equation is gonna be something like ohms= volts/amps.
the reg. 9 volts are made up of either 6-1.5volt batteries (looks like AAA sizes) or 5-1.5volt batteries (I think). Some may not realize, but the 9 volt designation does not tell you of the actual voltage. It is actually refering to the battery size...ie.. AA, AAA , C, D etc.

guess I'll have to look into that custom building thing, thanks for the link @wws2010, but I'm afraid that one's too big as well...

timmy frame? nope
battery in frontgrip? nope

any idea where I can get a custom made battery pack?

Something like this could work, I believe the dimensions are a bit too big but it is a 9 V supply
http://www.e-laptop-battery.com/mode...d-video-series To find similar items just go to google or yahoo or any search engine and type in Lithium-Ion battery or something similar to that. Something else you might try searching for is RC car/plane/helicopter batteries, there are 9.6 V batteries that might work again if you can find something in the right size. Hope this helps out some

you could have the battery outside of the gun attached to the reg and make it shaped like the mini foregrip

Found this interesting little battery
http://www.all-battery.com/index.asp...OD&ProdID=2221
Maybe it will work? It is a micro battery for RC planes 9.6V rechargable

I was thinking with the Dimensions they were including the length of the wire that connects the two parts of the battery. But I could be wrong dont have one in my hand. but with that wire between the 2 halfs. you could place half here and the other half there in the grip. but what do I know.
just trying to help. From the picture looking at the size of the wires and connector compared to the battery itself it looks really small.
