I've moved from a low end digital camera recently to the 1st generation Canon Rebel dSLR. The old camera took AA battery's so there was tons of advice out there on how best to store them so you don't short anything out, and sort them so you know which have been used at a glance. personally i liked using little plastic carriers that held two each - when i used the batteries (but before i re-charged them) i would flip one so the pos/neg ends were opposite (did that make sense?)
Anyone have any suggestions of a way to achieve the same with propritary batteries like canon's? To sum up: a) how to carry them w/o worrying about shorting out or knocking around in the camera bag, and b) quick way to know which ones are dead and which are good. Thanks!
