Cheap AAAA Batteries for Pen

2012-03-19, 9:43 AM

If you have trouble finding a AAAA battery for your pen: 

 

  • Buy a 9V Block Battery
  • Use a screwdriver to open the 9V
  • You get six LR61 cells (Very similar to AAAA)

Attention: LR61 cells are often unmarked so special care must be taken with polarity.

Thanks! Also. how long are the batteries lasting in yours. Mine are still good after 5 mos. Do they drain when not using the pen?

Tip: Make sure your battery is dead before replacing. My pen stopped working so I searched all over looking for AAAA batteries. Only place I could find was Radio Shack, where a pack of 4 AAAA batteries cost $20. When I got home, I took the old battery out and put it back in for some reason; I discovered that it now worked fine and is still working three months later.

I just bought them on Amazon for about 4 bucks for 6 batteries, so w/e. I wonder whether the initial battery life on the stylus is the one causing all the problems, maybe it's weak for everyone. Oh well, only one way to find out.
