Sean Michael Ragan at Make wanted an easy way to turn off his own projects without having to disconnect the whole battery. He couldn’t find a 9V power switch to buy, so he made one himself. To make your own, you’ll need some wires, a small slide switch, and know how to solder. Beyond that, the rest of the build is comprised of pieces from an old 9v battery.
