Np-50 storage options

Recommended Posts

I found storage bags as an option, but really looking for a way to store np-50 batts in a "store-a-cell" type of top load rigid case. Mybe one that holds 4 np-50's in a row like 9v cases or 2x2 etc. I cant seem to find one. I have a routine of battery storage where position in these top load cases indicates to me full charge or time to charge. Right now i am storing np-50's loose but they may topple sideways. I can fashion something out of plastic etc but curious if anyone is using anything for this purpose prefabbed for other uses that might apply?

Thank you! Cf card holders i had not thought of. I do have single plastic cf card holders i could potentially glue togther as an option. I have pelican media cases similar to what you posted that might be too bulky for my battery bag configuration, but thanks to your cf suggestion There are some cf storage solutions i hadnt explored that may fit the bill

I‘m using this: 

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00V2YFXBO/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1522186591&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=ansmann+battery+box&dpPl=1&dpID=41B7Ye41LIL&ref=plSrch

 

there are four compartments, each with some plastic pin, which I pulled out. Now each compartment holds 2 NP-50. I padded the lid with some foam and now the batteries sit in there really firmly. The entire box holds 8 batteries and it’s very light yet quite rigid. When the contacts look at me I know the battery needs to be recharged, other side up they‘re full. Very cheap, too, so I just bought a few in case one breaks.

This is what I'm using.  Not exactly what you described, but works well for me.  Black case is charged Batts, orange case needs to be charged.  Holds 6 batteries and takes up very little extra space.MVIMG_20180327_212048.jpgMVIMG_20180327_212100.jpg

I'm using a CF card wallet that holds 6 batteries that I got from my local stills camera shop. I put a red sticky dot on one side of the battery. No dot means good to go, red dot means charge me.

 

Please note links are Australian and stuff is expensive here due to isolation and crappy dollar.

The F-Stop one is a little less bulky.
