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.

Very Handy Battery Holder

By Anna Rock Head

from Port TOwnsend, WA

Verified Buyer

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

This item allows the safe keeping of an extra battery. It is secure and slides into your belt. I travel into some rough areas in search of gems and fossils so this gives me confidence that my extra battery has not fallen out of a pocket. The batteries fit very safe and snug into this battery holder.

Not what I expected, but nice

By The Gorilla Photography

Verified Buyer

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

Battery holster is good quality and appears that it will hold up to my use. The strap is big enough that i could attach it to either one of my camera straps, a backpack strap or a regular size belt. The only problem that I have with the holster is that the little flap that closes over the battery and covers it attaches to the backside by the strap loop. It is awkward at best and sometimes frustrating to open and close. I have attached a few photos to try to show what I am talking about

Overall, the holster is great quality for the money, but i wish the lid (flap) attached on the front instead of the back.

Not bad

By Jamesy

Verified Buyer

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

Three stars only as the loop on the back should be such that you can un-velcro it to wrap it around a strap rather than having to re-couple the strap and slide the battery holder through it. Nice snug neoprene pouch that holds my LP-e6N battery no problem at all.

              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.
