Default Battery Holders / organizers

I have acquired about 6 sets of 4 rechargable batteries. Keeping track of the charged and discharged sets and keeping them organized as well as carring them in a camera bag was a problem.
You can get an organizer very inexpensively by taking a set of batteries to your local gun shop and buying a cartridge case that fits the size of an AA battery. The one I found cost less than $2 and is configured 2 x 10 so that I can carry 5 sets of 4. The cells fit in very snug and with the top to the case I don't have to worry about cells shorting. I put charged sets in + button up and discharged sets with the button down. I always know which to use on a shoot and I can keep matched sets together for charging.

Wouldn't it be nice if our batts each had the built in lcd charge indicator like some dry batts have?
