This AA Active Dummy Cell Battery (white) is used to replace a real AA battery in flameless LED candles and other electronic devices that uses one or more AA batteries. It has an 8" long thin flat flexible cable (FFC) with a 5.5mm x 2.1mm barrel socket at the end and works with the barrel plugs on all of our Battery Eliminator Kits and Accessories (Power Splitter Cables, Power Extension Cables, AC to DC Wall Power Adapters). The cable and plug are in a special white color to better blend into white or light colored decors. Please read the detailed discussion and diagram for the components that make up a complete Battery Eliminator Kit/System.
This AA Active Dummy Cell Battery is one component of an overall Battery Eliminator solution which consists of a AA Active Dummy Cell Battery (this component), one or more AA Passive Dummy Cell Batteries (part number AA-DUMMY-PASSIVE - quantity depends on the number of regular batteries required by the electronic device), and an AC to DC Wall Power Adapter (DC output voltage depends on the number of regular batteries used by the electronic device). The tip/inner conductor of the barrel socket goes to the (+) terminal of the AA Active Dummy Cell Battery, and the ring/outer conductor of the barrel socket goes to the (-) terminal of the AA Active Dummy Cell Battery.
AA Active Dummy Cell Battery is the same size as a real AA battery, so
it fits in one of the battery spaces in the battery compartment. It
doesn't matter which space it goes into as long as the correct polarity
is still observed as with regular batteries. The thin flat cable can
easily be run around the side of most battery compartment covers, so the
original battery cover can still be used. In some cases, it might be
necessary to take a small file and file out a shallow groove which gives
the flat cable a little bit more room to run around the side of the
As an example,suppose you want to eliminate 2 x AA batteries, You will need 1 x AA Active Dummy Cell Battery (this component), 1 x AA Passive Dummy Cell Battery and an AC to DC Wall Adapter that supplies the appropriate power for electronic devices that use 2 x AA batteries. Since each regular AA battery supplies 1.5VDC, two AA batteries will supply 3VDC, so you would need an AC to DC Wall Adapter that supplies an output voltage around 3VDC (for example, part number ACDC-3P3VDC-1A-ADAPTER-WHITE supplies 3.3VDC).
another example,suppose you want to eliminate 3 x AA batteries, You will
need 1 x AA Active Dummy Cell Battery (this component), 2 x AA Passive
Dummy Cell Battery and an AC to DC Wall Adapter that supplies the
appropriate power for electronic devices that use 3 x AA batteries.
Since each regular AA battery supplies 1.5VDC, three AA batteries will
supply 4.5VDC, so you would need an AC to DC Wall Adapter that supplies an
output voltage around 4.5VDC (for example, part number ACDC-5VDC-1A-ADAPTER-WHITE supplies 5VDC).
NOTE(S): This is not a real battery and will not power an electronic device on its own. It needs to be used in conjunction with the other necessary components that make up a complete Battery Eliminator solution as discussed above and depicted in the included diagram.
