    Whatever you choose make sure it protects from shorting.

    I also have at least a dozen cases from LIW too. The Efest... thing... whatever you want to call my pic above :) is for carrying batteries with me. It's MUCH heftier and heavy duty than I thought before I got it.

    My stored batteries just stay in plain 18650 cases at home, but this is my everyday carry:

    thanx, everyone. after posting this, I got to thinking (yeah, I do that sometimes :zombie: ).

    what I think I am going to do = get a nice piece of 1x3x5? wood. drill holes so the batts stand tall. then stain it up nice.
    this way the batts are easy at hand.

    One thing to keep in mind is how to keep the sets married. That is one of the reasons I use the cases because it is hard to mix them up but I have had 2 sets of 3 roll together and had to go by the markings I make on them.

    If that piece of wood was say 2" thick instead of 1, you could drill the holes at an angle. Then if you set it on a flat surface the batts could point at or away from you. Or, could wall mount it with them pointing up. Wraps are cheap. I use diff colored wraps to keep them married.

    Wraps average about 10ยข a piece so not a major investment. The old trusty Sharpie is the solution.

    10 CENTS apiece and a nickel for adhesive positive insulator rings.
    Here's a pair of VTC5a's I rewrapped using those last week.

    I like to put a piece of paper or thin label under the wrap with the battery info on it and use clear or translucent wraps.
    Gettin old and need notes :)

    Been fortunate though only had to rewrap maybe 4 cells in 4 years of vaping.

    I won this in a rafle type situation. It was dontaed by @Absolute-Wood and it's awesome. Your post about wood and stain made me think of my stand.
