Looking for a battery pack holder

Looking for a battery pack holder

Postby GoProHandyman » Fri Nov 14, 2014 3:11 am

After going on the 10th trip and fishing through my backpack for a new battery pack, I'm wondering if there's a good, stylish battery pack holder. Anyone have any suggestions? (I use the GoPro Hero 3 extra battery, and will soon switch to the 4)

I have some skills with 3D printing, so I can hack together a few battery pack holders, if you let me know your external battery of choice (I'll probably poll the requests, and then pick the top 2-3).

I really liked the credit card SD card holder and was thinking something similar:

Maybe max 5 external packs - if you have any thoughts would love to hear.

this is so simple I don't know why you even need ask opinions....

Do the thing in 2 colours. RED and GREEN, with a very thin divider between each half.
Put the full batteries in the green side, the flat batteries in the red side.
Make it a clamshell/wallet type thing.
Make loads,
Talk to Rambo on here,
Become a sponsor and start selling them.
Done.

If you make it to accept batteries for HERO 3 and 4 I'd buy one.
My spare batteries are currently rattling around in a lens filter box,not ideal,I'd prefer something that was a snug fit.

It would be cool if there were something that could carry multiple GoPro Batteries (more than just 2). Maybe a GoPro version of this:
