This is project of none other than MCS’ go to guy, James Uy! Instead of using the cell battery this EL/M was converted to to use AA batteries.
I use 5 AA’s were used to supply 7.5 volts to run the charge motor. Mods were done on the battery contact of top cover, then painted red and black to identify the battery polarity. Now a convenient power source for EL/M’s!
AA’s have the same height as the original battery, so conversion was possible. By making a plastic cylinder same in the size and dimension as the original battery, conversion was a clean job.
