How To Hack a 6 Volt Lantern Battery!

Update: Based on user’s feedback, we noticed that the 6V battery hack (with video below) is a hoax. The 12 V battery hack with the link below is possible though. Please accept our apologies.

We previously posted a video that showed how to turn a 12v battery into eight small 1.5v to power up small electronics (here).

Today’s cool video shows quickly how to hack a 6 volt lantern battery to 32 AA sized ones. Since AA batteries are so popular, this simple trick can easily help you save hundreds of dollars a year. The reason is that the approximate price of a 6v lantern battery is only $5.

There is an additional video on Youtube demonstrating that this may not work with every lantern battery (here).

If you know how to determine which batteries the video below is for, please let everyone know within the comments.

Enjoy the video!

    Hey Jennifer, I looked around on the internet and found a couple of uses for F-sized batteries.
    1. Ideal for power intensive devices like E-bike, Radios, Boom Boxes, Remote Control Cars, and much more.
    2. Perfect for portable or emergency power source for Medical applications, transportation, communication and power tools
    Hope this helps!

    With Energizer, and with many other brands, opening the 6V battery up will yield 4 F, also known as “Long D”, batteries. Now that I’ve spent the money on them, does anybody know what I might be able to use them for?

    Hello Dave, thank you for your comment.

    It seems that it does not work with other brands as well as Energizer. In fact, based on some feedback from users, we believe this is actually a hoax.
