Battery Storage/Dispenser Unit (VIDEO)

Recommended Posts

Video can be found here:
Storing batteries can be very dangerous, especially 9 volts. 9 volts are particularly dangerous because they have both the + and - terminals right next to each other. This can cause these batteries to easily contact something conductive and heat up extremely fast. This extreme heat has been known to cause a fire and do some serious damage. I built the storage unit to not only help in the safety factor, but also to make it easier to know your battery inventory and ease of finding the right battery I need.
If you liked this project, I do have plans available on my website. See below!

Nice unit!...but DANG....that's a lot of batteries!!! You're ready for Christmas....but now that I think about kids are forever saying you have any double A's??? Not a bad idea.


One side year, I deer hunted all season with a 3 cell mag lite.  ALL SEASON, I used 3 rechargeable batteries and 3 Duracell D size batteries.  The D sized Duracells recharged fine just like the others and lasted just like they were new.  Now....Duracell probably doesn't want you to do/know that but it worked for me. AA and AAA didn't recharge so well. I'm sure I tried to recharge the 9 volt but I just don't remember.

I made a battery storage unit very similar to that but, much smaller. It holds AAA, AA, C, D and 9 volt and is free standing so I can put it on a shelf in the shop or move it to the house around Christmas time. Very handy for knowing where the batteries are and how many you have of each size.
