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.

Way too heavy

By Motionblur

Comments about Dot Line AA Battery Case:

What isn't obvious with this case before you actually hold one in your hand is how heavy it is. The yellow interior is some kind if heavy rubber-like material. If you only want it for storage at home then I guess it is OK, but if you are at all concerned with travelling by planes etc., then using this case gets pretty ridiculous. I threw mine away after a short while. Better to go with some of those tiny plastic cases or textile battery bags.

          Comments about Dot Line AA Battery Case:

          Effectively holds batteries and organizes them well. My one concern is that the clasp seems a little flimsy. Everything else about the case seems well built and durable but the clasp seems a little suspect.

          Solid feeling with a heavy rubber insert to securely cradle 8 AA batteries. Maybe the greatest value in photography.

                This is a great compliment to the 8 cell charger, buy two, one for charged and one for need charged.

                  Comments about Dot Line AA Battery Case:

                  The case has a firm padding in the interior that will keep your AA batteries firmly in place and prevent them from rolling or bouncing around. Durable build, and slim fit allows the case to be tucked into your gear bag.

                      These are the only battery cases I've purchased that hold up to the rough and tumble of location work. It never fails, I grab a (cheaper, slimmer) case full of batteries, drop it, and blam - the caes splits and the batteries fly. These cases are solid and can take the cold too. The only way to go if you're carrying batteries on location.

                        I already have few of this, I used this for my back up batteries, i like the design, more professional look and my batteries are well protected. Just the last one I bought has a crack when it came in. don't wanna send back coz it will cost me the same price of the item for shipping.

                            This item looks like just a plain plastic box with a rubber insert. Well, that is pretty much what it is except it is much more substantial than I expected. The insert the battery sits in in is more rubbery than plastic like. It looks like it should last years. The case itself is thicker than it looks in the add as well. The only part of this case that may give trouble is the hinge and the lock tabs. I have no way to tell how long they should last and I expect them to last years, but there is not hinge. They are just flexible plastic. With the quality of the rest of the case, these are probably well made to, but that is something that only time will tell.

                                        Have used these cases for several years. I've been pleased with the latches and never had a problem with them. I keep my batteries sorted in this manner: tips inside are good, tips outside need recharging. When I return from a shoot there is no question which batteries are good and which ones need charging. I will definitely buy this product again!

                                            Use to store AA's when not in Tascam DR70D. I assume over time the thin plastic hinges and clasps will wear off but that why there is duct tape! Does a great job at keeping battery contacts from touching each other.
