4.0 out of 5 starsGet organised and save yourself some time
Reviewed in Australia on 27 January 2020
I would be a dubious about hanging this off a wall, but otherwise solidly built. Excellent idea for getting all your unused batteries in one place at home. Also, putting batteries from seldom used appliances, remotes etc in this will save you from finding corroded batteries in the device when you come to use it again in a few years' time.
2.0 out of 5 starsBeware - can’t use AA slots as overflow AAA storage
Reviewed in Australia on 30 August 2019
22 spaces for AAA and 44 spaces for AA, unfortunalty u can’t use the excess of AA slots as AAA storage as they just fall right out the bottom. There is no clip on the main lid to keep it all secure in event that it gets knocked over or dropped. Battery checker works well.
My whole life I've been a bit of a "battery hoarder", lots of rechargeables, I save batteries that come with purchases, that sort of thing. Storage has always been an issue, but this case has solved all my battery storage woes :) It's very sturdy, looks great, and works perfectly. The clear plastic lid is a "nice" plastic, thick and clear. My only minor complaint is some of the holes for the AA and AAA batteries near the edges of the container are a bit tighter than the other holes so the batteries in those holes stick up slightly more than the others, but really not a big deal. The battery tester is also handy.
My unit arrived with the lid shattered, nothing some superglue can't fix. I'm not removing stars because another item I ordered arrived broken as well, giving the indication that it was just mishandled, and the unit otherwise works as intended
It seems possible to hang it vertically on a wall if you use your own screws/hooks, there's none provided. If you don't have an use for D size batteries you can use the slots for extra 9V or C batteries. Anything smaller would fall right through since there's holes
The only issue is that 9v batteries with slightly recessed connectors can't reach the metal on the tester
I love this thing - batteries have rattled around in a drawer for years and now they're organized, I can tell at a glance what I do/don't have, and I can use the handy gadget that comes with it to check what level of power my batteries have. It says it can be wall-mounted...not sure about that as the lid doesn't snap shut, but it fits nicely in my drawer. One other minor quibble: it doesn't really hold the tiny disc-batteries...would be helpful if it did that.
Really like the fact I can store all my batteries in a single spot. Some of the reviewers complain about the open bottom but if you check out the pics, you'll see the bottom of the battery is still off the ground and therefore protected. The onboard battery tester works pretty good too.
What would make this even better is if there was a way to flag which batteries are fully or recently charged
