I got the Fly More Combo and keep the 2 spare batteries in their orginal black card boxes in a backpack with all my camera gear, however they're a little bit bulky. Obviously don't want to keep them loose as want a little protection from bumps and knocks as well as shorting.

Just wondering if anybody has found any kind of box/container on ebay etc that suits holding spare batteries?

Also, looking at buying a fourth battery. Do they come in the same black card box as the Fly More Combo?

Maybe pick up a couple of Lipo bags to fit the Mavic batteries.  They will act as both protection from scuffs and shorting out.  Here's an example, but there's lots available so shop around.

I use the blue plastic bags I get a Walmart when I buy groceries, I usually get around 10 bags a week so if one rips I just grab another.

I normally just put the batteries next to one another in a section of a backpack, but the specialty bags Petroboy linked to look like a very good solution to me: they offer compactness along with fire and explosion safety. Put those in a reasonably well-padded camera backpack and you've also got pretty good impact protection.

I keep one in the side pouch of the bag and the other spare below the RC.  And,  yes,  I worry about damage in the side pouch.

No, don't use the Combo bag as doesn't fit all the chargers etc together. I have a cheap-ish camera backpack I got off of eBay (similar to this one - link below). I keep my DSLR and GoPro plus all the accesories/chargers etc and keep the spare batteries in the back pocket in their card box. Looking for something a little bit slimmer so think the Li-Po bags might be a good option. Thanks!

Normally whichever bag I'm using is so full of miscellaneous stuff everything is pretty much tight and doesn't move too much or get damaged.  And when using the DJI bag it's so compact they fit just fine without any additional protection.

I keep 1 in the Mavic and both other batteries in each pocket. i've just purchased one of these though http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/381902 ... =STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

as i'm not 100% happy with the space available in the DJI bag ...
