been there done that. I uually put those plastic caps on the contacts,but I try to keep the away from other metal.
 Luckily my detector and Garretts pinpointer only use one 9 volt battery each. I keep one in each side pouch.
 I leave an extra in the vehicle just in case one of them goes bad.
  I use one of those Sunbeam battery tester each time I go out to make sure the extras are fully charged.

Keeping batteries separated from coins (or other metal) is important.  Years ago on a hunt I dropped a spare 9-volt battery into my pants pocket.  Forgot I had some change in there.  A while later I started feeling a burning feeling on my leg where the pocket was.  Hurriedly pulled out the contents and the battery was hot.  Not quite enough to burn, but enough for me to learn!  It had shorted out on the coins and started heating up.  Quit doing that right away!   Wise


Ive done that before.  Back in the day when I was still in the army . I was walking around with a pocket full of batteries and a god gun for the miles gear. I darn near set my pocket on fire with 9volt batteries.
Ahh good memories,  thanks AB.

I keep a role of wide black electric tape. I run tape around the battery and throw it in the pocket.  No worries.

The only problem is that the pouch will pull your pants down if it is not tight enough around your waist or there is too much stuff in the finds pocket.
 HH Arturo

Nice problem to have.  Great

I look like those young folks with their pants halfway on their rear ends.
It also seems to make my back hurt since I have no support and the extra weight pulls on the muscles.
 I would like to have that problem if it was a full pouch of money though.

Use a pair of suspender straps to help with the weight and the movement prevention.
