    Thumbs up Cheap button cell replacement solution for Hot Toys 1/6 scale figures

    My kid's toy uses 3 AG9/LR936 Button Cell Batteries and I am tired of having to replace them when they are out.

    I am trying instead to make a cheap homemade solution using some brass (maybe other material - open to suggestions) and wires plugged to a 5V power supply. Each button cell is 1.5V and 3 would give 4.5 V

    This is what I've seen a person use (sorry about the bad image quality as I had to zoom it to make it more clear)

    It seems he uses some type of plastic rod and then on top of each positive and negative side a round brass cut out of a thin brass sheet with the wires soldered to them.
    The wires are very thin (about 1 mm)

    I am also concerned about the material used between the 2 brass circles and I'd like to use something that would be harder to burn - plastic seems better than wood in this case.
    Aluminum rod could be too much for this - more expensive and harder to cut to size.

    This is another one I've seen around - some type of metal along the black piece that has the positive/negative wires soldered to it.

    I tried finding these items on Amazon but could not.

    I was hoping I could get some orientation and links to such materials. It's going to be my first try.
    I am familiar with dummy AA, AAA batteries but this is to replace 3 button cells instead.

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry mate, as far as I know you should be able to post there - seems strange to me that you can't. What about in the 'Customs - How To' section, can you post there? (it's probably a better place to get an answer to this anyway).

    Nope. It seems the Forum is locked by default to all new members (maybe because of hack/bots - not sure).
    I already sent msgs to few admins but no replies.

    That's what I would have recommended you do - I'm not an admin, in case you thought I was - 'premium freak' just means I paid a yearly membership fee to have a larger PM capacity and to be allowed use the commerce section.

    Darklord Dave is the admin and Darth Snoopy is pretty much the only active mod these days.
