Organizing batteries is not usually the first thing that people think about when they think about organizing or when they think about batteries, although when you think about it, it does make a lot of sense to organize something like your batteries.
By organizing your batteries you will be able to know exactly where you have some in the house, not only that but also you will be able to know where all of the batteries that you have are. This will come in hand of course if you need to get some batteries for something because you won’t be wasting any time looking for the right kind of batteries that the item takes. Also you will be able to know just how many batteries that you have on, and equally important how many of each kind of battery that you have on hand. Thirdly you’ll never be mixing up your new and old batteries. The more you think about it, organizing your batteries is a very good idea.
The first thing that you want to do when you organize your batteries is to gather them all up, every last one that you have shoved in some box or drawer in your home. From here you need to determine which ones are good and which ones are bad, maybe you already know because of where you found them or maybe you are testing them out. All it takes is a simple toy or item that takes one battery to see if a battery is good if you don’t have an actual battery power tester. After separating the batteries good from bad you can keep all of the used up batteries in a container so you can take them to a recycling place as soon as possible. Sort the good batteries that you have into the types that they are and from here you can decide your storing method.
A quick way to keep the kinds of batteries that you have separated organized is to put them in clear plastic bags or clear containers so you can see what is inside. You’ll be able to know how many you have of what kind and as long as you keep all of the clear plastic bags or clear containers in the same place, like in a box, on a shelf or in a drawer. You also have the option of using a battery organizer to organize your batteries.
