Potentially high quality 18650/16340 case.

These look rather better than the usual crappy little boxes - http://www.dealextreme.com/p/2-18650-4-123a-batteries-waterproof-case-holder-54458

Water proof sold me ... 

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

Thanks for the link Pook.

I like the look of those, but what I use is these - available from Maplin for £1.99. Just checked - they have gone up by 25% to £2.49.

I believe they are made by Raaco in Denmark.

The tray with the dividers so nicely sized for 18650s lifts out.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.

Ooh I may have to pop into Maplin on my way home and see if my local shop has those in stock.

I keep mine in basic ultrafire cases, and then fit 4 cases (8 cells) perfectly into a pelican case. Indestructible and fully waterproof. Then I take them all on my big camping/canoe/fishing trips so my lights/laser/headlamp have unlimited power back-up. hehehe.
