Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a connection structure of a battery which is easily connected. SOLUTION: Pairs of battery posts 11 provided on each of eight batteries 10 are divided into three groups, and corresponding to these groups three holders 30, 31, 32 are arranged containing conductive members 40 inside of grooved parts 33 formed in each holder 30, 31, 32. By pressing the holders 30, 31, 32 against the battery posts 11, the adjacent battery posts 11, 11 are accommodated in the grooved parts 33 and are electrically connected via the conductive members 40. Since the holder is attached to every group in this way, the resistance (in the case a reaction force to deform a lock piece, a flexible piece 34 and a compressed coil spring) against the connecting operation of the battery posts 11 can be dispersed, and the connection work can be performed without requiring strong force.
