Mega Battery Charging Case (V2)
- Product Review (submitted on April 4, 2012):
I like this case. Once fully charged, I can charge at least 4 of my 78 batteries before needing to recharge the case. Even though there is enough charge left for another battery or two, I like to recharge the case at that point so I don't have to worry in a pinch.
There can be an issue for some because of how closely the 78 fits in the battery troughs, but I don't consider this to be a deal breaker in any way. I can slip the edge of my fingernail in to help lift the battery, if needed, but I don't usually have a problem. What is curious to me, though, is it almost seems like the troughs are somehow magnetized, as my batteries don't slip and slide around much. Maybe it is just a really good fit for the batteries. Nonetheless, I like it.
With three troughs or trays for extra carts - with rubber sleeves - It has turned into an essential accessory to keep with me at all times. I purchased a neoprene sleeve from SI to protect it, and the case with two batteries and three carts go with me everywhere. TSA didn't bat an eye at it when it was properly packed in my airline carry on, either. (All small electronics packed "off" in their carry cases neatly in a zip locked bag along with any extra chargers, and placed under the spare pair of shoes which are always on top of the other bag contents - with the exception of the liquids zip lock bag which is taken out and scanned separately at the security checkpoint. = SI customer tip of the day.)
