Maplin Electronics do a battery box for just £1.69 which will hold 8 AA batteries in series, thus delivering 12v. Your lights would burn brighter with the extra voltage.

They were already fitted when I bought it! They are all connected to a copper strip at the back which is connected to a red and black box. The battery is connected to a wire and then the 2 wires from the other end of the battery connector go into the red and black box. Its very handy as there no socket where it is! The lights are quite dim from a battery rather than the mains but it suits the vintage style. I hope that made some sense!!

You will have to give us a tutorial on how to do this. It looks lovely lit up.
