This can become a problem when you're in front of a crying kid waiting for you to replace the batteries of his toy or if you're taking group pictures and you have everybody waiting for you to find which batteries are fresh enough to put in your camera or flash.
The usual solution implies two distinct boxes to store the fresh ones apart from the ones on their way to recycling. On the go, you get the same issue and need extra discipline to keep them apart... unless you use the neat little trick below.
At alkalines.eu we need extra care when handling batteries to avoid mixing them (we even number them, keep a log book and a database) but battery boxes can go a long way:
You need to use a little box of the right size (e.g. a matchbox, just make sure you're not using a metallic container ;-) or one made for that purpose (e.g. on Amazon.com or Amazon.de). Print our label (see download section below). And glue it to the box...
|This matchbox has exactly the right |
size for 4 AA batteries
... you then easily remember which batteries are empty from the full ones by storing them upright or upside down.
