Get Rid of Your Dangerous Junk Drawer! Always Have Fresh Power With Battery Vault Storage!
Battery Vault holds onto your batteries to help maintain their charge for your next emergency.
There are three words that always fill me with dread.
House cleaning day.
About 3 weeks ago, my wife decided we needed to reorganize our home with a massive cleaning spree. I swear she went through every single room, closet, and drawer.
When she got to the junk drawer in the kitchen, she was shocked by the mess of batteries she found. I couldn’t believe she was about to toss them all away.
“Whoa, what are you doing?”
“Recycling these old batteries”
“Why would you do that? They’re still fine.”
That’s when she held up some old AA batteries that had obviously corroded.
“Are you sure about that mister?
Our family goes through a lot of batteries. The problem is, I’ve never really thought about organizing them in any special way. I’ve got a bag I keep in the garage and maybe a few other spots around the house.
I own a lot of gadgets. I usually remove the batteries from objects that aren’t getting as much use to prevent damage. The junk drawer is usually where these half-used batteries end up.
My wife wasn’t impressed with my system. I promised her I would try and get the battery situation under control.
So Many Toys, So Many Batteries, So Little Time
Next up was the kids’ room. My wife brought out all the old toys the kids haven’t touched in years. She made the mistake of asking them which ones they wanted to keep and which ones they wanted to add to the donation box.
Not surprisingly, they didn’t want to get rid of a single toy. Part of me couldn’t
And that’s when my wife put me in charge of testing all the battery-operated stuff to see which toys still worked.
“Daddy has lots of batteries he needs to check,” said mommy with a little smirk.
And so, I was stuck taking inventory.
And it comes with an easy-to-use battery tester (no batteries required for power)!
It holds 78 x AA, 64 x AAA, 8 x 9V, 10 x C, 8 x D batteries, and has an area for 12 button cell batteries.
The sleek container measures 3.5 x 13.62 x 9.25 inches, so it doesn’t take up much space.
The carrying handle makes it completely portable.
It’s solid, secure, and lockable, which is nice if you have young, curious kids.
When you fill it up, the batteries are sorted by size. You can find any battery you want with your eyes closed.
For the first time in a long time, my wife had no problems with my online purchase.
Loose Batteries Aren’t Just Messy, They Are Wasteful and Dangerous
- When storing loose batteries, make sure the ends don’t touch. When the opposing ends meet or contact any other metal items (spare keys, change, paper clips, etc.), you risk causing a short circuit that could kill a perfectly good battery or cause a fire.
- Leaving your batteries exposed without any protection (like in a junk drawer or a sealable bag) can lead to faster battery drainage, corrosion, and even a potential fire hazard.
- Because the posts on a 9-volt battery are so close together, you have to be especially careful when storing them to avoid heat buildup.
- Any small battery presents a danger for young children! You never know what they will try and eat!
I quickly tested and sorted all the batteries I had lying around using the tester. I bought some more batteries to occupy the empty spaces. There’s something very satisfying about filling up the Battery Vault. Now I’m covered for any emergency (like when the TV remote suddenly dies).
I tested the Battery Vault case in different spots to find a permanent location for it. The laptop-style design worked under the bed, in our bedroom closet, and even in the bottom drawer of our bureau. In the end, I found a home for it on the shelf inside our front hall closet. Battery Vault fits like a glove.
Lo and behold, the power went out during a storm! My wife brought out our best flashlight, but it ended up conking out on us. That’s when I sprang into action. I retrieved the Battery Vault from the closet and popped in some fresh D batteries. Knowing exactly where to look for the batteries we needed was a confidence booster in the dark. Dad to the rescue!
Between all the kids’ toys (which they rediscovered and now play with all the time)
