This is a handy item that I wish I'd had a long time ago. It is made of durable plastic and has a built-in battery tester that will test every type of battery the set holds.

The battery tester can be a little clumsy to use and I think it could have been better implemented as a sort of 'vice' where you place the battery on its side and push the tester end up to the bottom of the battery. Instead, this has an L-shaped arm that lifts up and you have to carefully place the battery between the contact on the bottom of the device and the top of the arm. This because more frustrating when you're using C and D sized batteries.

It also has a compartment that pulls out and holds small watch batteries.

I also wish there were a better way to present the rack. You can either lay it flat or attach it to a wall. Laying it flat consumes a lot of space, but I can't attach this to a wall in my apartment or at my office, so there's no other choice. Perhaps if they could simply have widened the bottom so it could be a sort of "foot" that would allow the device to stand freely on its own.

That said, the price is not bad and if you have a lot of batteries in a drawer or box somewhere, this will make finding a set of batteries that aren't dead or half dead much easier.

I liked the idea of this product to organize my batteries. The included battery tester was also a nice plus (and the only real value I was able to salvage from it). I also like the idea that it's wall-mountable.

Most of the batteries fit nicely in it except for the AA batteries, which were of course the ones that I had the most of. About half of the AA battery spots were too tight, regardless of whether I tried to use rechargeable or standard alkaline AA batteries in the spots. If I pressed really hard, I could get a battery into most spots, but then couldn't get them out without using pliers. This was especially true once most of the spots were filled. It seems the "dividers" in this area move a bit as you insert the AA batteries which makes the surrounding AA holes smaller and unable to be used. In particular, the outside AA spots were nearly unusable even without any other batteries inserted (as they had the least "flex"). All the other types of batteries fit easily in their spots (AAA, C, D, 9V).

I thought perhaps I could "Dremel" out the AA spots with a sanding bit but it didn't work -- they were simply too tight and would have required a lot of sanding to get to the point where the AAs would fit in about half of the spots.

So ultimately I paid $11 for a battery tester and threw out the battery holder. Even if I hadn't tried to modify it, it wouldn't be worth paying the $6 to ship it back.

I should have read the reviews... Yes, I bought this and I tried to put AA batteries into it. These are the most common batteries most people use. Needless to say - SOME FIT AND MANY DID NOT. As it turns out, some AA batteries (the better quality - higher performance ones) are a little thicker than others. Those AA DON'T FIT into the holes. The cheap ones do fit.

This unit is therefore functionally not usable. Bummer!

Holds the most batteries of any organizer, and the only one with a removable tester. You can detach the tester and carry it around and dig in drawers and all the places you throw your batteries. My daughter had at least 40 AA and AAA batteries that were still good, that would have been thrown away if I didnt buy the rack and tester.

I bought two of these and mounted them side-by-side on my garage wall and immediately filled them both up. Now I have enough batteries to survive the upcoming zombie apocalypse. A few of the battery slots were a slightly snugger fit than others, but only a single AA slot in one of the two holders was extremely tight. Forcing an AA battery into that one very tight slot subsequently required pliers to remove it. I simply leave that one slot empty. I'm still left with 163 (between the two organizers) perfectly useful battery slots. I'm quite satisfied with the build quality, price, and fast shipping (thanks Amazon Prime). I would highly recommend to anyone who keeps their batteries in a kitchen junk drawer--you know who you are--or simply don't have the patience to open the ungodly impossible battery packaging when you're already frustrated by needing a replacement battery in the first place, always at an inopportune time. Now when the need arises, you simply go to wherever you're pre-filled battery organizer is and pluck out the needed replacement.

I have over 30 rechargeable AA batteries & a mess of others so I bought this just to organize. I haven't used the tester. VERY disappointed my AAs do not fit in all the slots they are a hair too big in diameter! I am returning it. I am so disappointed as I love it otherwise this would have been perfect for my drawer but my batteries just don't fit in all the slots only some of them!! ARRRGGHHH

Overall, this is pretty good organizer. The small drawer designed for small batteries is almost useless. Some rechargeable AA batteries (different brands)do not fit easily into the slots. I am not sure if it is because the unit is still new or it is just a bad design. Not all slots are that way. The majority work. I like the battery power gauge.

Overall it is a good buy. It worth the money. But I just wished they had better design and were more thoughtful about the small battery drawer.

Bought this for Christmas 2007. Definitely a keeper for storing batteries. Hung it on a wall behind a bedroom door. No problems at all with batteries falling out. While some batteries may fit loosely, it is good becuase my rechargables are a tad fatter and do fit.

The battery gauge is really not all that good. Different size batteries really need a switch setting to allow for a different load resistor to be used for testing. And the 9 volt battery testing doesn't work on my unit. The battery storage capability deserves a 5 star rating, dropped to a 4 due to the battery tester. It isn't the prettist unit I've seen, but absolutely no complaints on looks due to storage capacity and price.

A definite keeper.

This is a good product that does exactly what you would expect. The only drawback is that, as part of its 66 battery capacity it allocates enough space for 8 9-volt batteries. Given that these are so rarely used in my house, I would have preferred to see maybe 4 spaces, with the remaining room being for extra AA or AAA batteries.

The AA battery section is either too tight or too small, I have many AA's. If you pushed them all the way in in the slots that were too tight, they would get stuck in there, so I had to just lightly let them stand in which looks ridiculous, others were too loose and they just easily dropped in, which isn't a problem but just shows the plastic forming process is poor. The battery tester is garbage as it is very hard to keep the battery still and you can't clamp down on it like you might think from how it looks in the picture, it keeps quickly slipping away.
