If you frequently use rechargeable batteries in the field or while traveling and want an easy way to keep the freshly charged separated from the recently discharged, this clever and cheap hack is just the ticket.

Whether you’ve got extra batteries for your flash, your camera, or other electronics you’re traveling with, it’s a pain to lose track of which batteries are charged and which are dead. At DIY Photography they share a clever hack that involves a simple sticker/label and a DIY container. The orientation of the batteries in the holder gives you an instant peek at whether or not they are charged.
