    I did a search but didn't find an on point thread. Are there any considerations in how a spare battery is carried? That is does the battery need any protection from shorting or accidental discharge? Thanks.

    I used to just let them rill around in my backpack. You can't hurt them. Now I have an external charger so I just keep a battery in that

    Husband carries his in his pocket and I carry mine in the zipper portion of my purse with my iPod, 2 sets of headphones, and various store/department store coupons.

    Wallet. It goes where I go so very convenient especially when battery is about to die.
    I don't notice the bulk of it either. It sure feels nice not having to worry about limiting my power consumption. The only hassle is to having to swap out the fresh battery in order to charge the near dead one.

    You can get a battery charger that doubles as a case. Click on picture below, price on ebay is currently $9.99 - Buy it Now price (this one is used, you can search for new ones.)

    ...In addition to those comments - I would suggest storing your battery at full charge.(keep the cells active)

    If you are in an area of extreme temperature changes, there are pouches used for storing medicines in your car, that can work for protecting from extreme heat or cold.

    That said, I have a little change purse attached to my car keys, that I keep batteries in. I also try to remember to charge them all once a month.

    Hope this helps!

    Another vote for just keeping it in the wallet.
