Although a short is unlikely as long as the battery is physically shorter than the case and fits tight enough that no position could result in simultaneous contact of both terminals with the case, I do not consider a metal battery case to be the best idea.

If you or a buddy have a lathe, a very effective container can be readily fashioned from Delrin/acetal.

A metal container can work, but the terminals should be isolated by something non-conductive.

Seems like a great idea, until you put it into practice. Trust me, a delrin container on your keychain is annoying. Metal banging against delrin is not music, just annoying.

OP, if you acquire this battery tank, let us know if it fits a single AAA cell also
