Where, pray tell, can I buy magnetic battery contacts -- like the ones below?

Hi Jason:

Yeah, I saw that when I googled... hoping to find something here in the US. Can't be that hard, right? Anyone else?

I find it difficult to solder a copper wire to a magnet. It might be easier to weld it.

I'm taking a wild guess that Benjamin does not have welding equipment.

These are what I use:


contact magnetic's

Checkout the batteries that the little magnetics attach to. I use the Radio Control stuff and have some of what you see for sale.
