Abstract : A reconfigurable heavy duty battery holder which holds a plurality of standard sized battery cells. The device has removable plates and detachable leads to allow the user to reconfigure the device to provide different currents and voltages. The device comprises a body with a plurality of chambers for batteries, two end caps at either end of the body, and contacts at the end of each chamber electrically connected with terminals on the exterior of each end. Terminals allow attachment of either a connector plate or a lead. The user can select the voltage and current available by changing the position of the leads and connector plates. The body and ends provided are durable enough to withstand heat generated by high current demands and stress caused by frequent replacement of battery cells.
