Amazon Shoppers Swear This $17 Organizer With Over 43,000 Five-Star Reviews Is Saving Their Junk Drawers
When it comes to battery storage, I can (admittedly) be a bit haphazard. Typically, I toss them into a drawer and forget about them until I actually need a few, at which point I then have to search for them again. I’ve never really considered getting a battery organizer, but I can see how they would be extremely helpful, especially when it comes to having a dedicated place for all my batteries that didn’t involve rifling through my drawers at all. One organizer that’s racked up over 43,000 five-star reviews on Amazon is the Ontel Battery Daddy, a storage case that not only holds your batteries but also makes sure they’re still in working condition, too.
What’s cool about the Ontel Battery Daddy storage case is that it’s two-sided, can hold 180 batteries, and even comes with a tester to make sure they’re in tip-top shape before you use (or trash) one. The primary side of the case has the tester along with spots for batteries of varying sizes, from tiny coin cells to hefty Ds. The back is made to hold a large inventory of AA batteries, which are always necessary to have on hand. In total, the storage case can hold up to 78 AA batteries, meaning you’ll have plenty of juice on-hand for remotes, flashlights, game controllers, and more. Both sides have a clear lid so you can easily see all the batteries you have inside and you won’t have to drop them into whatever free space you can find in a drawer. “For years we have kept our batteries in a Rubbermaid container under our bed,” said one Amazon reviewer. “I saw this and thought it was time to move them to a cupboard and get them more organized. This is great and I love that it will test the batteries just in case someone threw the dead ones in when they were changing batteries. I highly recommend this product.”
The battery tester inside the Ontel Battery Daddy is a huge plus for happy shoppers who’ve already picked one up and the cell battery storage is another convenient feature. Though the tester is a little too small for D batteries, it’s a sweet convenience to have for everyday battery picks like AAA and AA. “I bought this so my batteries wouldn’t catch fire in a drawer as I have seen happen,” said a review. “It’s great for that, plus it’s big enough to hold all my batteries and more.” The case also has a carrying handle so you can take it on the go as needed, which really comes in handy for storms and other emergency situations. I could see it being especially useful during hurricane season.
Though the Battery Daddy doesn’t come with batteries included, it’s only $17. You can get the case, stock it up with the batteries you already have at home, and then fill in the rest as needed. “This is truly a gem and should actually cost more than that,” says one reviewer. “It stores all my batteries and has more room in the back. This actually made me go buy batteries to fill it up. It’s a must-have!”
