It's important to note that the average voltage regulator has about 1V of dropout, which can vary significantly. This pack, with regular alkaline batteries, will output approximately 5.5V, causing a standard 5V board to operate at around 4 to 4.5V. The actual voltage will depend on the specific board and processor used with the battery pack. Therefore, it's recommended to refer to the datasheet of your board and processor for precise information.
With its simple design and compatibility, the Sparkfun Battery Holder with a 4xAA to Barrel Jack Connector is a practical accessory for any project. Its unique properties make it a versatile tool that can help bring your innovative ideas to life.
