Pros:

-Clear so you can see how many are inside
-Latch stays open until you lock it
-It says what batteries it's made for on the bottom
Cons:
-Rattles
-Latch is hard to close
-Latch is hard to open
-Lots of wasted room
-There's a giant logo on the front
-Doesn't fit protected cr123s
Other:
This case works pretty well. It holds cr123/16340/18650 batteries. There is a lot of room in between the batteries that caused them to rattle. The latch is hard to use but it works very well. It seems to be made for 18650 batteries because cr123s fit better when the terminals touch, but there's cutouts to fit them without the terminals touching. Lastly, it doesn't fit protected cells, even if they are paired with a primary with the cells touching.
Bottomline:
Get it if you need a case for your batteries when traveling.
