Ideas for a “dream” cell storage solution
« on: August 11, 2020, 04:05:28 AM »
Hello everyone, new member here. TFF is awesome!
Like everyone on here, I have a lot of rechargeable batteries in all different sizes. 10440, 14500, 16340, 18350, 18650, 21700, 26350 and 26650. and variations of each type – button, flat, etc
I’m looking for an incredible battery organizer / storage solution. All the ones I’m finding are for AA, AAA, C, D, and 9V
I’m leaning toward some sort of Pelican-style case with custom foam
Cost isn’t an issue… would love any thoughts & advice
thanks!

Not sure about the other sizes but shotgun ammo cases are great for 18650 cells.  I find that regular plastic storage compartmented boxes work great for cells.

For an affordable pelican style case that is about as good as a Pelican, Harbor Freight sells an "Apache" brand that is very affordable and high quality.  pick and pull foam and everything.  They go on sale regularly.

Hello everyone, new member here. TFF is awesome!
Welcome to the forum!  Thanks for the kind words.  Things aren't as busy as they used to be cause I got out of the hobby for a while and activity really dropped while I was away.  I'm trying to bring it back up.  Keep on posting and sharing! :)

Both are nice options.  Thanks for sharing. I generally have stacks of the plastic containers that the cells come in when I buy them. I suppose a case like those you posted would come in handy.
