Check this out, but be careful, not all betteries are like this. These smaller ones are great for modeling:

Is this real? Have you tried it?
Looks gigantically fake. The oh-let's-see-where-those-button-batteries-ar-OHMYGOD-my-eyes-it-burns-so-much kind of fake...
But maybe not.

Well, I just went to Wal-Mart and bought some for another project since my initial search was to see if there was such a thing as a 12v battery. I'll let you know. I'll certainly be wearing goggles and protective gloves!

It's true! Just did it. You get 8 1.5v batteries and some parts for the spares bin. Perfect for lighting up your kits!

SWEET! cuz I've seen that nine volt one before but heard it was a big OMG-my-eyes-it-burns fake. Energizer here I come.


EDIT: So I remebered I had a 9V in my battery case and never use em. I call shenanigans!!
here is proof... Glad the 12V thing works though.

Wow, I did not know that consumer batteries were even assembled like this. I know that most lithium ion battery packs are generally wired together battery cell packs, they are assembled in a similar fashion, This is really cool news to me.  :-)

It is... some 9v have AAAA's in them while some 12v have the 1.5v button cells.
