Battery Caddy – Finally! No More Loose Batteries

By Andrew Liszewski

I’m all for organization, almost to an obsessive degree, but I don’t know if I’m really sold on the Battery Caddy. It was originally designed for pilots to carry batteries in their flight bag without them ending up all over the place, but is now available to anyone with similar organizational problems.

The caddies have special flexible teeth that ensures a battery won’t fall out no matter how much the caddy is banged around, and even has protection for the terminals on each end. But you know what I’ve found that also works great for storing batteries? Their original packaging. Brands like Duracell and Energizer already come in resealable plastic containers, and a pair of scissors is all you need to remove the cardboard top section making them even more compact. Keeping them in the original packaging also removes any doubt in my mind that they might have been used, but to each their own.

The Battery Caddy comes in a variety of sizes and configurations for carrying large or small amounts of the same size battery, or an assortment of different sizes. They also come in your choice of 7 different colors including a glow in the dark green, and range in price from as low as $4.95 up to $13.95.

    I’ve had the glow in the dark model for 4 AA’s in my flight bag for the last year. I really like this product. It never occurred to me to purchase one of these for home.

    I buy mine from Countycomm (http://www.countycomm.com). they have quite a few oddities and I’ve had my battery caddies in 2 sizes for months now. As an aside, I can vouch for Countycomm’s quality and staff.

    I am a photographer, and burn through a lot of batteries for my flash units. I moved to rechargeable batteries a few years ago, but always had a problem keeping track of what had been used and what was fresh. I’ve tried several systems before finding these battery caddies. I put them in correctly when they are fully charged, and put them in upside down when I’ve used them up. That way I can quickly find fresh batteries in my bag when I’m in a hurry, and I can keep sets together for recharging. I think they’re a great product.

    This is great for rechargeables which you usually do not keep in the original packaging. I understand that they are developing a charger that will accept the entire Battery Caddy with batteries installed to re-charge as a unit and go. No more loading/unloading in and out of chargers. Pretty neat for professionals and people that use batteries on the go.
