These are just simple battery holders that was in one of my woodworking magazines not too long ago. I pretty much went exactly by the plans. It’s nothing too fancy, but it’s nice to have all my batteries in one easy access holder. I made one for me and one for my father. I added more pictures then necessary, but I figured I’d give a little insight to the simplicity of this project.

Thanks for all the comments.

Time2beupinAZ – I saw yours before I started mine, and debated on making mine bigger as well after seeing yours. I do use more AA’s and AAA’s, but decided to keep it the way it was.

Great work. It seems that in todays world you can never have to many batteries. That’s a great way to organize them.
