Very good for keeping handy, and accounted for, a lot of stuff too small to retrieve once out of sight, from the camera batteries that is was meant to contain, to small spare cell batteries, change [never together with those small batteries though, I have four of these on my camera strap], a small note, miniature LED flashlight, keys, security pin, in own case all of the above.
Elastic in size and accommodating, dependable fastener so far, might create addiction, no kidding. Wish it could fit 4 AAs rather than 3, but that would make it pretty bulky at once. Always a tradeoff...

Bought this and the Hakuba Carry Case for Batteries - Black B&H # HACBQ MFR # HK-BCS, which is a 4 star product with a zipper. This unit is only good for say a Fuji X20 battery, to small for a Nikon EN-EL15 battery.

I have been using a SanDisk black pouch that came free with CD memory, with my Fuji X20, it holds a battery and SD card in a case, it has a zipper to make sure they don't fall out, but it has a rope like strap that loops into a key ring. The loop makes me nervous since I share the camera with family members who are not as careful as me.

The Hakuba, has a clip, so if I use that it easier to take it off when I give it to a family member to use. Not thrilled how the Hakuba connects to the clip, but not going to pull it apart to find out how easy it breaks. Very lightweight strap, about equal to the free ScanDisk pouch.

I would not buy this item again, and do not like it so much might return it. Doubt it will ever be used.

            this is the second one i've purchased. good batteries aren't cheap and can easily be damaged. this is an inexpensive but wise purchase. remember, no battery, no pictures.

              So small it is hard to get the battery into it, The belt loop is so small that you can not get your belt or camera strap through it. It is useless and now resides in the Garbage.

              Comments about OP/TECH USA Battery Holster (Black):

              I bought this to keep an extra battery for travel. It was smaller than expected. The battery fits really tight. Perhaps that was intended so to battery won't slip out. Because of the tightness, I am giving it 4 stars.

                      This is a great item to have to carry your spare battery. I bought it for my Nikon En-EL15 battery and it fits (barely), but is tight. Still, I can carry the extra battery with me.

                          The battery holster is good for carrying a spare battery in a handy location right on the camera's strap. It velcros securely so there is no worry about the battery slipping out. It fits the battery of my Panasonic G3 perfectly as well as the Olympus BLS-1 battery, so it should work with the current version of the BLS-1, the BLS-50. It is too small to fit an Olympus BLM-1/5 battery.

                            The holster seems to be well made but it is too small. It will hold a battery for my Coolpix P900, but not the battery for the Nikon D7000.

                            This is relatively useful for smaller batteries, like maybe the small Sony batteries or LP-E8, but not great for Canon LP-E6 5D batteries. The price is right, though.

                                Very good for keeping handy, and accounted for, a lot of stuff too small to retrieve once out of sight, from the camera batteries that is was meant to contain, to small spare cell batteries, change [never together with those small batteries though, I have four of these on my camera strap], a small note, miniature LED flashlight, keys, security pin, in own case all of the above.
                                Elastic in size and accommodating, dependable fastener so far, might create addiction, no kidding. Wish it could fit 4 AAs rather than 3, but that would make it pretty bulky at once. Always a tradeoff...

                                  Poor design. Strap goes through where the flap fastens and it does hold in place on the strap. Pocket for battery does stretch to fit different battery types but I do not look for it to hold up very long with material used.
