Default Ammo box LiPo battery storage

I got tired of having a disorganized and unsafe pile of batteries in my shop and at the field and I decided to finally do something about it!

I wanted to keep my batteries safe, so I designed a caddy to fit in a standard .50 caliber ammo box. I wanted all of my batteries to be organized , so I made it flexible so it can be configured to fit a wide variety of battery sizes. I wanted it to be easy to use, so I designed it to be easily removed from the ammo box so I can quickly find the battery I'm looking for. And last but not least, I wanted it rugged and easy to assemble, so I made it from 1/8" birch ply and designed it to be fully interlocking!

It's got 14 removable dividers so the compartments can be easily configured for wide variety battery sizes. It can have from 10 to 28 individual compartments and depending on your battery sizes, you could have more than one battery per compartment. I have the sizes of the compartments listed below:

Middle compartments - 3.5" (89mm) high

No dividers
6 total compartments, 1.8"x2.5" (46mm x 63mm)

With dividers
12 compartments, 1.8"x 1.2" ( 46mm x 30mm)


Side compartments - 2.5" (63mm) high

No dividers
2 total compartments, 2.1"x2.5" (54mm x 63mm)

With primary dividers
4 compartments, 2.1"x 1.2" ( 54mm x 30mm)

With secondary dividers
8 compartments, 1"x 1.2" ( 25mm x 30mm)


I figured others might find it just as useful as I have, so it's available for purchase from ParkScaleModels.com if you'd like to get one (or two) for yourself.
