A must thing for loose batteries – UltraFire 2*18650/2*17650/4*CR123A Battery Protective Case (2-Pack) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Keeps all loose batteries (which fits in) in safe and order.
- No need to fear short circuit.
- Easy to take spare batteries with you, inside pocket, bag...
- Covers batteries from scraps
- The structure is quite solid, 1.5 mm thick plastic with reinforcing fins inside...
Cons:
... but the fins are only on lower part. That makes the upper part more flexible and the batteries inside will rattle too. The fins should be on both parts.
- The case is not splashproof nor watertight. That is bad for outdoor storage (camping etc.)
- A little mold tension was noticeable in both cases and the seams were not firmly together (after closing)
Other:
- The hinge is propably the only point which will break during time, because it is very thin flexible plastic. You need to be gently, when opening/closing the case.
- The case corners could be more rounded. At least there would be room for bigger radius.
- A hint:
You'll get two protective cases. Mark the words "charged" and "used" on the cases and you'll always know the batteries condition.
Bottomline:
A must have product to store batteries.
But for a watertight case, you need to draw a plastic bag over the case (like Minigrip).
