    Have all sorts of batteries loose in a drawer?

    You need a Battery Storage Device (with) a handy battery tester 

    Forget about having loose batteries all over the place. Batteries can actually short out and lose power touching one another or other metal objects when thrown loose in a drawer. There's even a video I saw that shows a 9V battery starting a fire when it contacts the strands of a steel wool pad. Scary. This battery case holds 93 batteries of all sizes, including AAA, AA, 9-volt, D-type, C-type, and even flat cell batteries. The lid is said to be shatter-resistant, transparent acrylic for easy visibility. Also included is an easy-to-use battery tester. The one I bought is branded Bell & Howell but you'll find almost identical ones on Amazon too. I shopped for the one with the lowest price, which was under $20.
