For those of you who are using battery powered LED lights, what are you using to prevent your Sony NP-F970 batteries from getting banged around? I was thinking velvet jewelry bags with drawstrings might work, but there may be some other solutions.

Another idea might be a Pelican case with Pick N'Pluck foam. That would also allow me to store my charger and cables. Any help with this is very much appreciated.

Cameras/Lenses: Canon 80D, Canon 70D, Canon 18-55mm, 50mm, 10-18mm, and 55-250mm Lenses
Accessories: Case Logic SLRC-206 Backpack, Canon Speedlite 430EX III-RT, Canon RC-6 Wireless Remote, Davis & Sanford TR653C-V9 Carbon Fiber Tripod, Aputure Amaran HR672 LED Light Kit, Kamerar DF-1M Softboxes

A couple of suggestions are…

Think Tank CABLE MANAGEMENT pouches-

for example -> TT Cable Management-10 holds: four(4) Aperture Amaran HR672 LED batteries.


Possibly gear organization strategy, by bag (based on a solution/application-driven approach; that way you can store chargers, cables, gels, etc. too). A "grab-n-go" bag.
A separate bag for video applications such as,
Aperture Amaran KIT CASE (was available separately on Amazon, etc.; it’s larger than the Aperture individual LED light bag):

Good luck in finding a solution that meets your needs & you are comfortable with.

Just one view...


The Aperture HR672’s are a nice value-for-money video light; with reasonable quality light, even though the diffusers are goofy-looking awkward, but effective. (the Spot version in particular, I’ve found give more flexibility and control over the shape & direction of light).
