    Still here and checking regularly.

    I haven’t seen much from you lately.

    No more points to grab.

    Let’s be civil guys. The past is the past….let’s move on to newer times.

    Well I happen to have about 20 something 12V batters so I always have extra for each light. If I’m concerned about the level, I stick it in a tool with the indicator or right on a charger…easy enough workaround.

    What if you are inside your work truck or van, and need to get a fully charged battery out of the box of 12 batteries you have, and you know some are low some are full some are in between, do you grab a random one and hope that’s a full one so you don’t need an extra trip into the job site and back, or do you bring all 12 and a charger inside to plug it in to check one by one?

    I try to minimize charging to two times a week, meaning in Sundays and Wednesdays I bring all batteries all platforms inside the garage to top every one of them off. I don’t charge every day and I get enough batteries to last 3 days (typical days). Not having a battery level indicator would be an important enough factor to eliminate that platform from consideration.

    I have a system for dead batteries. They are turned and stored upside down until they get charged. This way, nobody grabs a dead one, and I can easily tell which ones need charged. I have a routine at the end of the work day. When I get out of the van, I go to my box which holds the batteries, then pop the dead ones into chargers I have lined up in the garage. Morning ritual before work is to put the full batteries back in the box.

    Yes that would be a way to go. I used two different systems of tool and battery storage over the last few years, my first system is I think similar to yours, where I put all the batteries and chargers for different brands and store them together. That way all the batteries are there, and if I need to switch a battery I just get a fresh one, and like you said either flip the dead one or place them sideways doesn’t matter just so you can tell which one is fresh. After doing that for a while, I decided to go with a different system, where I do not store the batteries together, but each tool has a battery already mounted and it goes with a tool. The advantage of that is the drill has it’s own battery, the saw has it’s own, the grinder has it’s own etc…and if I need to use a drill, I just pick up the drill box and go inside to the job knowing the drill is good to go and I don’t need to go through the hassle of fishing a battery out of another box, which could be in a box in the back under another box. The downside of course is if I do run out of juice, I have to come back outside and rob the battery from the saw to use with the drill. But overall I went with the second system because statistically for my usages, it’s much less likely I will need to switch batteries then I have to mess with a battery storage box every time I have to use one tool. But I do round everything up twice a week and once on weekends to recharge. The other reason is when I do that I can reduce the stackable storage boxes by one. I no longer need an additional box just to store batteries and I can use that real estate to store something else.

    Just seems to be universal, I put the 18V ones upside down too. The 12V ones I lay down on their side if I have a more than a few waiting to be charged.
