Just looking for ideas as to how everyone stores there batteries. How do you keep the numerous batteries in groups (of 4 or whatever you use). Just rubber bands? but that is kind of a pain. Just looking for a way to keep my sets of batteries together allowing me to use the same ones together and charge them together.
Thanks in advance---

Work on AA and AAA.

Very decent quality for the price.

+1 for Thomas Distributing. I have several of the Powerex 4-cell plastic cases and they're the best solution I've come up with so far. They'll hold either AA's or AAA's securely, are nice and compact, and inexpensive.

Same case is twice as expensive at B&H, where I bought two. Nice to know there's another place.

yeah, for such cheap simple plastics, I doubt there's any difference between the pricings, other than resellers' profit margin.
It's also ironic how some resellers still have to charge money to ship these really light weight small items.

+1 on the plastic cases at Thomas Distributing, and they usually include them FREE when you purchase batteries from them.

I also like the Green Battery Wallets although it appears the nylon belt clip ones I have may not be currently available. There are some similar ones listed however...

Green Battery also has the plastic covers for some camera batteries (BP-511).

Thanks for all the suggestions! These links are exactly what I was looking for.
Any others that have not been mentioned?

I have gotten the battery cases from several places and the last place was this one from Thomas Dist. http://www.thomasdistr​ibuting.com …027il77ojfaimsd​gncjmmsrn6 (external link)

It will hold AA going one direction or AAA when placed the other direction, which is nice. But what I really like is the tabs for opening the case. One set that I got from another place has a clip that goes under a tab and is a pain to try to get open. They both hold the batteries, but when you want to get them out, the winner is clearly the tab on the Thomas cases. There are other brands that have the same type of tab and are probably made in the same factory. Thomas is just where I got mine.

Very decent quality for the price.

No arguments about the quality/price ratio, as I also have a 3-pack of those. However, just as the reviews mention, I often find them cumbersome to open. I've been looking into alternatives recently, hence my previous input to this thread.

I have a bunch of these and they are well made plus no waiting for shipping from China.
