To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought a few of these batteries organizes recently to compare since they have been on lightning deal recently. This one has a covered carrying case which is nice but has a few things I don't like about it: 1 - the battery tester is analog & hard to use/read, if the inclusion of this intrigues you I think you'd be better off just buying a digital battery tester for less than half the price of this set and you'll get better quality 2 - inside the case the battery organizer is completely made of foam; probably my fault for not fully researching the product but I assumed it was plastic; I loaded it up to try it out but the foam does not seem overly durable and I don't expect it to last long once you start to remove and replace the batteries from it 3 - probably my biggest issue with the foam is that the batter cutouts were NOT removed! You have to loosen and remove all of the batter slots yourself before you can use it. May seem minor but there's a ton of them so it takes a little time and it makes a mess.
In all, it is probably a bit expensive for the product even on lightning deal but it is not horrible. I like the case but I'm not optimistic about the durability of the product to last. It's not something I would return but also not something that I'd buy again.
The meter will give a fully good reading on a AA battery which is 0.15V below spec (with no load current). Since there is no load current feature in the meter it gives a very false indication of the battery condition. Even without a current load, the meter reads an unloaded battery which is drained out as good. The case is fine but don't buy this for the meter. I don't know if any of the other battery meters are any better but this is not worth the effort to measure a battery. If that weren't enough, the ergonomics of the meter make it hard to line up the battery terminals with the smallish contacts in the meter.
While it technically is a battery organizer with a foam insert, it is not well made. The case is pretty nice & sturdy (except for the broken zipper inside of mine), but the foam is just a cheap insert that isn't even cut to fit the case it comes in. You will have to remove every foam plug that is in every hole of the foam, but that's not really a big deal. It does look really nice online, especially the black foam, but I got a cheap grey version that feels like something I should've just made myself by spending $6 at Home Depot.
Fabulous organizer. Holds the batteries nicely and the container is sturdy but I don’t like that it holds EVERY kind of battery imaginable. Like seriously who uses AAAA batteries? I didn’t even know they existed. And almost nothing uses nine volt batteries yet it has eight slots for them. Love the case just wish they made a smaller size that holds only AA and AAA and MAYBE with some C and D spots. Not a lot of variety in sizes for cases. Only AA case or only AAA case or this gigantic one for everything and it’s mother.
