    Quoted from sbmania:

    Do you need a diode there or just a straight short?

    Since there are normally 3 batteries in the remote holder at 1.5V per cell for 4.5V total, 4 batteries would be 6V.
    So, you can just short one cell slot with a wire or other means and just use 3 of the slots (no battery in the 4th slot).
    It might also be possible to just move one lead to a point where only 3 cell slots are used on the assembly and just ignore the 4th slot...
    This is not quite as eloquent as having a battery holder with 3 slots, but at 65 cents....
    You can decide what works for you...
    You might also consider just forgetting about AA batteries and use a lithium flat 5V cell instead.
    I think there are some mounts available that you can use to replace the 3 AA cell mount.
    I see a lot of people doing that to avoid acid problems with AA batteries.
    Then, you don't even need a remote battery holder.
