  • Battery box ?

    I find I carry a spare couple of batteries around with me loose in my bag. I've been looking for a small battery box to hold one, or perhaps two, BLN-1 batteries for my E-M1/E-P5. I found a battery box on Amazon, but it's just too small for the BLN-1. Does anybody have a solution ?

    Re: Battery box ?

    Maybe a bit big for your requirements, but I carry more batteries, particularly if away for the weekend; I use little neoprene zip up bags from Poundland.
    They are normally with the tech stuff, phone cases, cables, screen protectors etc.
    Colour coded, padded, and will fit 5 or 6 BLN-1s, a 9-18mm mFT, a 14/20mm etc.
    Best Regards
    Bill

      I use an appropriate size plastic bag, one per battery. The main purpose is to prevent foreign objects shorting the terminals, and secondly to keep the battery clean.

        Yes, when I'm carrying a single spare I keep it in a small ziplock clear plastic bag.
        For two or three I use some hard plastic cases with a snap-lock that originally held 4 CR123 lithium batteries and were sold by 7DayShop. Three BLN-1s fit exactly.

            Yes, thanks: that also shows the ones I use, but they seem not to be available now.

                I use a small camera zip up case I found in our local discount store.

                  Thanks for all the info'. I've ordered a couple of the JJC boxes from Amazon, however I do like the look of Ross's zip case. I may get one of those as well [emoji4]

                    I use a Thinktank DSLR Battery Holder 4 bag - it holds 4 of the EM1 batteries

                    see them
