Storage Cover for D-LI109 Battery ?

To prevent contacts from shorting and destroying the battery, when not in the camera. My K-S1 kit battery did not come with one. The manual seems to indicate that a cover is not provided with the kit. OTOH, each Canon battery that I have, including the original, has one. Is this Pentax battery simply not shortable, then ? What do I do ?

Keep it in a small plastic bag. I agree though, they ought to come with the moulded caps. They kept my K20D batteries as-new for 7 years.

Keep mine in small bubble wrap bags. I can't remember where they came from.

The Lowepro Melbourne 10 mini camera case holds two DLI90s. I keep one of them in a plastic ziplock bag so their terminals don't touch.

I save all sizes of small ziplock packages that come with different products. Some are very heavy plastic, and fit camera batteries perfectly.

Or, here is another option:

You could always make a sleeve out of heavy paper, card stock or a manilla file folder.

I agree. The battery for my K10D came with a sleeve cap and it worked quite nicely.

There are several products on the market similar to that linked below, though I still would like a simple cap.

IIRC, there are also a couple of specs out there for 3D-printed snap cases.

I also agree that Pentax should include the molded caps; the one for my K10D is wonderful; but of course does not fit the battery for the K3.

Thanks to all !

The Donutman cover with the charge state indicator is perfecto. How much does 3D printing cost ? He should be manufacturing these things in quantity ! In the meantime, I've come up with this solution: dental floss container kept tight with a wide rubber band (such as they cinch up kale/collard stalks with).

I too store the extra batteries in separate plastic bags

if there are no holes, is there a problem with that procedure

aren't you just trying to prevent physical contact between the batteries
