Okay, this sounds stupid even to my ears.

Apart from a ziplock, does anyone have a great and slim-sized way of carrying around batteries? Something like a memory card or filter wallet that can fit nicely in a Think Tank Retrospective 30?

My Cactus V5's keep discharging because the on/off switch is so easy to flick on.

For that matter, can anyone recommend something that holds maybe memory cards and filters and/or batteries??

Its for AA batteries but it should hold AAA well enough.

I have a bunch of cases similar to these that work well and they're cheap:

I usually just put that yellow cap that came with the battery on and put the battery in my pocket. But since I got a grip, I keep both batteries in there.

Edit:Whoops you meant AA batteries.

I have a plastic case that came with my AA batteries I bought from Micro center and it holds 10 batteries and it's pretty slim. long but slim.

Hello Paolo - these plastic cases are perfect:

I got a number of them when I purchased my battery chargers and rechargeable batteries. The are compact, light, transparent and display the contents quite visibly and snap shut.

These aren't cheap but they are nice... and you can test your AA or AAA batteries before using them to make sure your rechargeable batteries didn't lose their power.

They're inexpensive, fasten together when needed and are color coded.

Thanks everyone!
I was looking around...but I guess that I just didn't exactly know what to type out in google.
But, this is great! Almost all of these would fit extremely nicely in the side pockets instead of sloshing around inside the secondary pouch.

I also use these. Inexpensive and take up no more room than the batteries themselves. Amazon  (external link)has six for $8.00. Stocking stuffers.
