Default Charge Lead Storage

Has anyone found a good way to store all of their various battery charger leads? Post pictures if you can.

Thanks Larry

Not sure if this way is good or not, but all the ones I use mostly are stuck to the chargers. I like my clear box the best , the hanging ones next best.

Criminy! Why do people need so many adapters? I think I have like 5 in all. In some cases, I modded the stock connector on something, or came up with a better solution. It sucks to go somewhere to play and you left the one adapter you need at home.

Hey! You stole my charger case! Give it back!

That particular case is available from places like Lowes or Home Depot or similar stores. The loops in the lid insert make perfect places to put the various leads to keep them organized.
And yes, except for the charger itself, that's my case.

I do quite a bit of testing of batteries for club members as well as testing of samples submitted for review. As a consequence I have a number of adapters for batteries and chargers I hang on the wall on the right side of my test bench.

Thanks guys, I am kind of in the same boat as Guver, sometimes as neat as Woodcrafter and Red when I load the chargers up to go to a contest but the leads all seem to get tangled up by the time I come home.

I was thinking about cutting a strip of starboard and drilling a bunch of holes in it to fit the banana jacks. then hang it up somehow similar to what red has...we will see how that works,

Thanks for the pics and response,

Larry

I just got done sorting those before I took the pics. [X(] I make most of them up because of a need at that time. The last lead I just happened to buy because it was cheaper than I could make it. It was that yellow HK XT-60 connector. I had bought about 3 batts a few months ago and wanted a direct banana lead for charging without adapter.

Guver, I do the same and sometimes it is cheaper. By posting this question I recieved some inspitation and drilled holes into some "starboard' I had laying around here are some pics of the results, I have one I will carry with my charger and another I mounted near my charge station in the shop, seems to work pretty well, time will tell,

I bought this case at Harbor frieght for $24.

Worked out perfectly.

That inside flap (where the loops are) opens for more storage (like the instructions for the charger).
