sorry it’s so late, blame Kodak. hit more for the sketch on how to run your arduino off a 9volt

Battery Power for Arduino

if it works ill gladly take credit. fry at your own risk.



  1. you can also splice a wall adapter’s tip to a 9v battery, its alot cleaner and you have less wires running near the power supplies.

  2. so i thought about that, but i figured header pins were cheaper than tips. if youre worried about shorts (as i was), you can stick a little piece of heatshrink on the wire before you solder it and then slide it down over the joint.
