Good cases, worth the price – UltraFire 2*18650/4*CR123A Battery Protective Case (2-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
Great little case for my RCR123 (16340), albeit a little loose when carrying these, it does protect them better than being loose in a bag. Supports in the case keep things in place. Plastic is quite thick 1/16" and shiny, has the UltraFire logo on the cover.
Cons:
The hinge is of the bendy plastic variety, rather than an articulated hinge. The supports for the 123/16340 are not quite the correct radial arc, so the batteries shift horizontally, and the end supports are a little too tight for the length of the battery (RCR123), causing all to sit a little crooked. Lastly, the case is about 1/8" taller than it needs to be, given the actual diameter of the battery. It would be nice if they tightened up all these parameters, to streamline things and make it a little less bulky for storage in a pocket or larger case.
Other:
Colors vary -- I received two clear, two yellow, one blue, one orange (ordered 3 sets).
Bottomline:
Nice case with the right key features to get the job done -- can't be matched at a dollar store.
