I have had one of these cases for several years and I am constantly using it, accessing spare batteries several times a week and also taking it on overseas trips several times. The latches have held up fine and it works exactly as it did when I first got it.
Have just bought a few more speedlights so am purchasing a few more of these case, I just wish they were available in different colours to help with seperating fresh and used batteries.

    Sturdy, but hold it upright when opening

          Comments about Dot Line AA Battery Case:

          I have another 8-battery storage case that has dividers between each battery such that I can hold the case at almost a 90 degree angle when opening and nothing moves/falls out. With the Dot Line battery case, it's more of an indentation for each battery as opposed to dividers. Holding the case more than about at about a 45 degree angle when opening does indeed cause the batteries to shift/fall. Thus, the first few times I used the Dot Line case, I had batteries shifting/falling out every time I opened it. Now I'm more careful to hold it flat when opening and everything stays put. So -- if you're careful when opening/working with it (as I am now) - it all works fine -- however, I still wish I could find cases like my old one!

            I use a lot of rechargable batteries so these cases are great and a safe way to transport batteries.

            Comments about Dot Line AA Battery Case:

            I am a full time Pro. I have several of these AA Battery Cases. To separate charged and used simply take a Green Sharpie and run it across the yellow on the top lip. Now run a red sharpie across the yellow lip on the bottom. Good batteries always face up with the positive toward the green. Used always face down toward the
            red with the positive. If you follow this procedure you will never have a problem separating the charged and used battery.

              I love this case! The batteries are held secure, in place in a moisture tight case. I love that the batteries don't slide around once inside. I bought three and love each of them!

                While the name on the case seems to vary each time I order one of these battery holders the quality seems to stay consistent. I really like how these protect the batteries and keep the contacts from touching. A simple, inexpensive product that works.

                          Not a whole lot to say about this simple product, but it does what it is suppose to do. Very sturdy and secure. Keeps the batteries from sloshing all around in the camera bag.

                                    Keeps all your batteries together. The only problem I see is when you open it up, they all fall out. But I liked it enough to buy a second. So yeah.

                                      We have a lab with 20+ computers that need 2 batteries each for the wireless mouse and keyboard. How else would you store so many batts ready to go? While the lock-snaps are not so great for when they sit on a table, they are neccesary if you toss them in a bag and don't want it to open and have to dig for your batts. I use a Sharpie to write "Charged" or "need to charge" on the cover.

                                        I ordered this item to store my extra rechargeable batteries for my camera. I always take 'thousands' of photographs especially on vacation or family functions and always need extra batteries with me. I carry my camera with me everywhere and everyday. This case is sturdy, compact and well made. I will use it always.

                                          If you own more than 4 AA Rechargeable batteries than this is for you. This is a must-have for every gear bag. The quality is as expected and I do expect them to last quite a while. Certainly at the price won't mind buy a few more.

                                          I've started using more rechargeable AA batteries and needed cases to hold them. I need them 8 at a time, so this was a great choice. The base (yellow) is soft and rubbery and the outside is firm and solid. There are 2 problems though. The outer case doesn't take marker very well, even permanent marker and the latches will wear out because the plastic is a thin hinge that will eventually tear or break.

                                            This storage case is great because if batteries are stored with positive and negative terminals touching, they may begin conducting electricity idly, which will discharge them.
