I am up to four of these great plastic wonders. I have not thrown them around the house or outdoors, but have chunked them around in various gear bags and have not had one of them so much as crack.
The two larger unites hold a large amount of batteries.
Eight (8) AAs, four (4) AAAs and one (1) 9-Volt.
The 9-Volt option is important to me because I use PAL Survival (LED) Lights as well as others. So, with one battery caddy in any given piece of gear along with a PAL Light, I have an extra battery that is in reserve and protected from discharge or damage by the caddy.
I purchased those two units from Best Glide.
The next two each hold six (6) AAA batteries.
The orange caddy was purchased from Survival Resources.
Lastly, the Glow-in-the-Dark, "Moonshine" caddy was purchased from The Bright Guy. As you can see from one of the pictures taken with only the glowing caddy providing light, they really work. They also, unlike the Flintstones and other 1960s and 1970s Glow-in-the-dark cereal toys, stay glowing for quite some time.
All three of these companies, along with the aforementioned PAL Survival Light, are great folks to deal with and I recommend them highly.
