Information Article about Battery Adapters
Battery Adapters! You’ve heard the term before but you’re not quite sure what it means!
This information article is written to clarify and illustrate this for you. Once you read this, you’ll probably see a use for them in your life! Battery adapters are so practical!
In its’ simplest definition, a battery adapter is an empty shell or sleeve that houses a smaller battery within it, and is used to convert the physical size of a smaller battery to a battery of a larger size. This is necessary when the battery compartment of a product requires the use of a specific size battery but you do not have that size. Instead, you can use a smaller one, (ie: put an AA size battery into a C size battery adapter) and presto, you now have a C size battery (size, not strength) to fit into your device. Let’s go over that in other ways and with other wording because we realize that some things need to be explained in different ways to be fully understood!
If your AM/FM radio needs D size batteries, it’s the physical size that a D battery is, that the compartment has been built for. If it turns out that all you have are C batteries, but you have battery adapters, you can place the C battery into the D battery adapter and immediately, you are now holding what the radio will perceive to be a D size battery! Does that help you understand the function of a battery adapter a little better? It’s really not complicated at all. It’s just that until you know they exist, you’d never think they would!!!!
They’re really quite ingenious! Now let’s be perfectly clear – the adapter doesn’t change the capacity or the voltage or the chemistry of the battery. In fact, it does nothing to battery inside it. All it does, is modify the battery SIZE while it’s in the adapter so it can fit properly into the radio or other electronic device.
Therefore, a battery adapter doesn’t change the power or rating or output of the battery you use with it.
Using them is much easier to explain. Simply twist them apart to open them and drop your smaller battery inside them, then close them up again and you’re done!
If you have a battery inventory at home that is a little short on certain sizes, you can use battery adapters to make the batteries you have, “temporarily be” the sizes you are missing for your portable devices.
