    Hell, if nothing else metal is going in that pocket, I'd go as far as to say as you could keep it loose without the bag if you wanted to. I just wouldn't store it loose in your pocket with keys or something that could short it.

    If you get some Gaffer's tape and put a small amount of it on the ends, that will work, and keep the contact area clean. Use just a little, gaffer tape doen not leave anything behing, but it can after some time passes, or gets real hot.

    It will work for you.

    Get it at a camera store, if there are any left, or a film expendable supply store. best part is you can choose from tons of colors. Do not use Electrical tape, that Won't last a day, and Duct tape gets gooey.

    I just carry a CR123 loose in my pocket. I don't know if I'd recommend it but my pants haven't caught fire yet for the past 5 years.

    Fine as long as you don't absentmindedly toss in some change or whatever. Would hate to have a high temperature event so close to the goods, as it were.

    I'm sure that somebody has mentioned these in another thread but THIS a good way to carry a single cell on a lanyard or keychain and it protects the terminal on one end so it can't short.

    I carry a spare AAA battery in a small ziploc bag that stays in my EDC wallet.

    I figure that the bag stops any chance of the battery getting wet should I end up soggy, and stops short circuits as there are other metal pieces in the wallet that may shift slightly.

    Seems to have worked so far, though I wouldn't mind a more hardy system if I could get it for the same size...
