Review - PowerPax Battery Caddies

Every once in a while, you see a product that just makes you think, "Huh, what a great idea. I wish I had thought of that." Well, PowerPax Battery Caddies are such a product. I'm actually really surprised that they're not more popular than they already are.

The PowerPax Original Caddy holds AA, AAA, C and 9V batteries.
We've all carried loose batteries at one point or another. Whether for a digital camera, a flashlight, or other various electronic devices. Carrying spare batteries is crucial if you're intending on using the device for any longer length of time. With carrying spare batteries comes the difficulty of keeping them organized. For the longest time, I would keep my spare batteries in a ziploc bag. That worked, but it never kept them together too well; sometimes the bag would rip. It just wasn't very convenient.

Then, I saw PowerPax and, right away, I knew that this is an item that I could use. PowerPax Battery Caddies are simple holders for your most popular battery types. They come in various sizes, each carrying a different amount of batteries. With all of the PowerPax models out there, you can find a caddy for your specific need, whether it's only a few batteries for a short trip, or a caddy that can store many different types of batteries. Heck, they also make a PowerPax Caddy for the popular CR123A battery (often used in flashlights).

The SlimLine AA is one of the most useful caddies.
PowerPax also come in many neat colors, of them being Bright Orange, Yellow, Military Green, Black and even a Glow-in-the-Dark model. They are made out of a very high quality polymer that is both lightweight and strong. While they may seem a bit pricey at first, these Battery Caddies will last for many years of good use.

I have used PowerPax for a few months now and have found them to be very useful. I keep a few in my camera bag so that I never run out of batteries for my electronics. If you're a person that uses batteries while on the go, which most people are, definitely check PowerPax out. You'll wonder how you ever lived without them.
