anyone got any interesting containers for there flashlights, batteries, etc?

I’ve recently discovered my 18650’s fit in some medicine bottles perfectly and with a o ring added it’s waterproof.

so just wondering if anyone else has any unique gear containers they’ve found that work good

I found out by accident that the body tube of an Ultrafire WF-502B makes for an excellent 18650 storage tube with a belt clip, and it’s watertight if you put a dab of epoxy on the end facing the head.

I like the containers from Walmart discussed in this thread.

Airborne/Airshield tablet bottles fit 26650’s nicely.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

I forgot to mention (and I don’t have pic’s since I gave it away) but I made the case my old EOTech came in into a padded case to hold a nitecore i2 w/ car plug and 6 16340’s for my old boss when I quit (up till then I tended his batteries for him). I have another EOTech case from my magnifier maybe I should utilize it for something. I’ll check back I’m on a week or so…
