4X AA Battery Case for Photographers

3D Printed AA Battery Case for Photographers

Being an avid photographer, I have always found it difficult keeping the batteries for my shoe mount flash organized. I have bought many different cases over the years that all claimed to solve the issue of keeping dead batteries seperate from charged batteries. Infortunately these cases usually broke after a few momnths of use, or they didn't really do a good enough job for me. Being the resourceful maker I am, I decided to hit up Thingiverse and see if anyone had created a battery case that would hold 4 AA Rechargeable batteries. I was in luck and found this Customizable Battery Case. I modified it using the Makerbot Customizer and placed a recessed lable on the top and bottom that says "Charged" and "Dead" respectively. Print time is about 120 minutes for 2 sets.

While visitng from Germany, my nephew wanted me to print something for him to play with using my Lulzbot AO-100 3D printer. Naturally I went straight to Thingiverse and found a cool Balloon Powered Jet Car that I could print up in about two hours with everything on a single plate.
