MiniZip Shop

MiniZip provides your Lego® sets and creations with a compact and cheap source of power.


MiniZip is a cable that adapts a 9 volt battery to Lego Power Functions®. No need to build your model around a bulky battery box – just leave a small nook to fit the battery into.


Because using batteries once and throwing them away is expensive (and bad for the environment!), several of the shopping options include rechargeable 9 volt batteries and a charger at bulk price – cheaper than if you were to buy them yourself! This way you can create all day without having to buy new batteries.


Please note that the charger is a trickle charger and not a ‘smart charger’. See manual for charging times. The charger has US-style prongs and is designed to work at 110/120 volts. If you live somewhere that uses a different plug style or voltage, you may need to buy an adapter.

If you have any questions regarding your order, feel free to email me at I do not always get notifications from comments so email is the quickest way to get in touch. Thanks!

  1. Congratulations Mechnable for your fantastic invent.
    I’m an AFOL (adult fan of lego) structural engineer (59). l love to build motorized trucks, crawlers, boogies, etc with full remote control. It is my favorite hobby when I have free time.
    Your invent will reduce severely the dead weight of my models and the required available space, growing the effective performance and torque.
    I’m going to buy you one or two minizip cables this week when you comeback from holidays
    A respectful suggestion: To increase the length of the cable (a 30 % or more) or to make two or three options with different sizes.
    My best regards

    How much is the shipping and how long does it take to reach Singapore?

    Does the shipment cost include a tracking number too?

    • Shipping is $4.25 and it includes a tracking number. I’m not sure exactly how long it will take to arrive but hopefully less than two weeks.

  4. HI! Is this still in stock?

    If so do you ship to Singapore?

    Just interested in the mini-zip cable alone and I probably need 2.

    Hope to hear from you soon.


  5. You should try to put a on and off switch on that but i bet it would be pretty hard, but hey if you can do that this is way better than all the lego battery boxes!
