That's just it.... I have no schematic or wiring or anything.... it is a very simple 2-wire connection from the battery holder to the Arduino. Just one wire from a AA battery (-) to gnd, and one wire from AA battery (+) to Analog0.
Really, there is nothing to this at the current time. Just a battery holder and two wires.I just can't justify why this battery nearly melted on me.
Am I warm??? I really have no idea.
And the battery holder I'm using is similar to the following link.http://www.solarbotics.com/assets/images/bholdaax4/bholdaa_4cell_pl.jpgThe exception is that mine has four solder tabs on each side (for the + and - of each battery).
I do not know the in-depth operation of the Arduino and what might possibly be feeding back to the battery causing it to overheat.
The only thing I can think of is that I need some kind of current-limiting resistor between the (+) of the battery and the Analog input since current causes it to overheat??
I'm not very experienced with electronics.
