Thread: 18650 spare holder

  1. #1

    Thinking 18650 spare holder

    With a new VB-16, I suddenly have to deal with 18650s.
    Are there any cases or spare holders available for these batteries?

    A speedloader pouch for .357 without the plastic insert holds 4x18650 and makes for convenient belt carry.

    Some cheap shotgun shell holders work too. Somewhere around here someone had a thread on them and where to buy cheap.

    If you've got dollar stores around they also usually have a lot of cool little cases for various things. Some of them work great.

    Walmart carries the same match containers in orange. That's what I use.

    Same here. They are in the camping section and are about a dollar a pop.

    Great little holders! (as I look into a sea of 4 of them lol)

    Any good solution for half a dozen or so 18650s? I use a Pelican 1010 case for CR123 using the pre-cut foam from Lighthound but don't have any equivalent (waterproof, shockproof, etc) for 18650s.

    My HID uses three 18650s per load so I'm wondering if there's a better way to carry these than a bag full of the single carrier mentioned above.

    I <think> a Pelican 1200 would be deep enough, but it would also be big enough to carry at least a dozen.

    I'd be happy with one of InAnyCase's custom fit cases to hold 2x18650. Unfortunately, they don't make one, but I've got quite a few that hold 6x123 and I really like them.

    Bumping up old thread...

    I just received DX sku 27551 "Aluminium Alloy Pill Shaped Keychain" and it fits one 18650 cell without rattle.
