Battery management

Post by skywalker71 » Thu Feb 19, 2015 7:36 pm

Just a quickie...

In order to manage your used and fully charged batteries I recommend one of the storage cases below. I just got mine today from a well known auction site. They stop batteries from rattling around in your pocket and getting mixed up.

I got two cases for AA and AAA as well as one for a 9v.

Not bad for only a quid each inc delivery!

A few months ago, I was reading a big US detecting forum, and someone had posted a 'tip', suggesting you store your batteries in metal 'Altoids' (or something similar) tins, with tissue paper wrapped round the batteries. The mind boggles. I'll try and find it.

I've been using these cases for a while now as I had a concern about loose batteries shorting out in my pocket !! They are brilliant ::g
