Paper circuits and E-Textiles are a fantastic way to teach the basics and fundamentals of creating an electric circuit without the need to solder or code a single thing!
The new E-Textiles EagLED battery holder with screw for CR2032 by Little Bird gives you 3 positive and 3 negative sewing points for your E-Textile or paper circuits. After inserting your battery, you can use a screwdriver and the tiny screw provided to secure the battery in place. Once the screw is in, the battery cannot be removed without a screwdriver.
I'm not going to lie.... getting the screw in is fiddly. I found pushing the screw in by hand first so it stays in position then screwing it in is the easiest way to go. We are currently sourcing some small screwdrivers to make this easier if you are going to be doing lots!
Note: The screw requires a 1.4mm phillips head screwdriver. You can get away with the little bird screwdriver at a pinch but a small glasses screwdriver works better.
P.S: If you are unfamiliar, a paper circuit is a functioning electronic circuit built on a paper surface instead of a PCB. Projects can range from greeting cards, to origami, to traditional art such as paintings or drawings. What makes them unique is the use of traditional fine art techniques to create a circuit that is combines aesthetics and functionality. Paper circuits are becoming more and more popular in the hobby electronics world. The easy availability of craft-like materials and increasing abundance of new products has created a really unique ecosystem for crafters looking to make the leap to electronics projects.
The ACCC has come out with guidelines for using coin cell batteries and now have essential requirements for using Coin Cells in goods that will be used by children.
(I) be designed and manufactured such that the batteries are not accessible to young children when the device or the packaging of any replacement batteries provided is subjected to normal use or reasonably foreseeable misuse,
(II) (a) have a battery compartment (or other enclosure) that is secured (preferably with a captive screw, a bolt or mechanism) such that it requires a tool to gain access to the batteries,
With this in mind we have come up with the E-Textiles EagLED battery holder with screw for CR2032 that has a screw which needs to be removed before the battery can be removed.
