    Anyone Have A Bottle Battery Container?

    I'm looking for a custom bottle battery container so I can hold batteries in my water bottle cage. Anybody have an leads to a neck-less container of interest?

    For your reference, the Lupine bottle is perfect. Where could I get a container like it, or similar?

    The Batteryspace.com battery I have comes in a mock-water bottle. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like they sell the bottle separately. I suppose you could visit a few stores that sell water bottles and see if you can fit your batteries inside, then make your own...

    Thanks, I'm looking for a non-necked bottle, or one with very little neck. I would also prefer a compact <500ml size






    Either of these would work, but I just wanted something cool like the Lupine's.

    Cage Rocket. This is what it looks like with batteries in it and on the bike.

    Take a bottle cage to the grocery store. There is also a shorter size of metamucil. Also look around near peanut butter and jelly, and instant coffee. Also Ketchup and Mustard. You will find the right thing.

    We actually have some old ones sitting around here that don't have batteries any more. Let me know if that interests you. They would just be the gray bottle case and cap.
