Battery Interrupter (Soldered)
Setup & instructions
A battery interrupter lets you use an accessible switch to turn on and off many battery-operated toys and devices. The battery interrupter interrupts the flow of power from the battery until an attached assistive switch is activated.
The battery interrupter is inserted within the battery enclosure either between two batteries or between a battery and a battery terminal. The wires to the jack are routed to the outside of the battery enclosure.
An assistive switch is connected to the battery interrupter switch jack. If there a power switch on the electronic device or toy, it is placed into the on position. Activating the assistive switch should then activate the electronic device or toy.
