I’m pretty sure I’m not the only photographer with this problem.
I’ve tried rubber bands.
I’ve tried Gaffer tape.
Gaffer tape works good but it’s too pricey to be used that way.
If you use any kind of portable electronics that is power thirsty, then you’re probably buying batteries in bulk at a discount store like Costco, Home Depot or Wal-Mart.
Those packets usually contain 48 AA batteries at a good price.
I’ve tried to pry the packet carefully around the sides and see if I can reseal or tape the opening close when I’m done taking out what I need.
I’ve made a hole that’s just big enough to extract the battery and taping over the hole.
No one way works better.
Since I found these wonderful AA plastic battery containers, I break open the packet and pop them 4-at-a-time into one of these.
My Speedlights use 4 AAs so these containers are perfect.
Now my AA batteries never roll around or come loose anymore.
The best part?
They cost a whopping
20 centsÂ $2 each so I picked up a 5 pack(2 in a pack) of them from Meritline.
By the way, I’m Â an affiliate of that retailer.
Why not? If you guys buy this item by clicking through here, I’ll be able to retire. 😉
So, if you guys use something else for battery management, do share them with me under comments.
