AA battery case

  1. Does anyone know if their are any companys that make a case that will hold 5 AA batteries? I have seen some that do a 4 AA case but I wanted 5 since I use 5 batteries in my SB 800...

    My solution was to have a total of 20 Powerex batteries, 4 to a case. :wink:
  3. Ed, when I bought a 77m Tiffen filter from B&H a while ago, it came with soft nylon case and holds 5-6 AA batteries. I just took a look at B&H website and found some individual B&W soft filter cases (#BWFP77). It isn't particularily cheap at $10 but may be the solution you are looking for.

  4. Rubber band?

    Altoids box might do the trick but here is a site with a 6 AA holder https://01836cd.netsolstores.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=466
    The other solution is to get a couple of 1 to 2 inch wide elastic bands and sew them tegether across the width of the band to hold one battery. This way you can make it hold as many as you want and also keep them together with minimal loss of space in you camera bag. I would even be willing to make one for you for a few bucks for the bands.

  6. I buy Maha batteries from Thomas Distributing and use their 8-cell plastic cases to carry my 5 extra batts for the SB-800. They're $1.99 each...
  7. There are nice cases around if you want to spend the money. If you are cheap, besides the rubber band solution offered above, I find that one small plastic container for blueberries, bought in the supermarket works fairly well and is the right size for a few AA batteries. YMMV

    Dealextreme 3 pack for $2.48 shipped. Maybe you can use two sets of batteries. They claim to be water-resistant.
