seems simple enough. straight out of mitchell- take 3 AA batteries and tape them together in series. tape a wire to each end. now you can jump a curcuit that runs off5v ref and test

I didnt try it but seemed worth mentioning

It will only be 4.5v and very little capacity, but should work.
You can also use a 9v batt with a 5v regulator and have a regulated 5v source with a lot more capacity.
The 5v regulators are about a dollar at radio shack I would assume.

Ugly?  Easy now -- that's my baby and it's got lots of unique character!  When I drop that built 445" stroker in it you won't have any time to "pull over to let me pass" because I'll have already blown past you when you figure out what the hell was that loud noise behind you . . .

One of the RC mags did a test on several alkaline AA batteries, years ago. Voltage ranged from 1.3 to 1.7+ volts. It was interesting that the batteries with higher voltages had less capacity. Walgreens brand batteries were the most notable high volt/low capacity units.

Doing more with less, or something like that.

That's pretty interesting!
I've tested Duracel against Costco brand, and they are almost identical.
I should also test the newer Energizer offering...  seeing how they keep advertising how they are better than all the rest.
