    For those of you that have the 3D printers.
    I bought some of these battery end caps from Drone Mountain. They work great, but you can not see them while in the case.

    So the thought occurred to me, we need something that clips onto the top of the battery latch that could be seen while in the case.

    I use some scotch tape and a sharpie in this example.
    Any takers?

    You could just flip the batteries but I believe you would have to modify the foam to fit correctly.

    I thought about flipping them, but as you can see I have them numbered so I know which is which.
    Was a thought for those more creative than me,

    I'd give it a shot but I don't have red filament. I have the Green... orange, blue, clear, light blue, black, grey.

    Easy enough to make. These just are to identify charged vs discharged?

    Pharkas,
    Yes, something that will clip to or fit under the battery latch.

    Charlie,
    That it kind of what I am after, but I think those would be too big to fit on the ends of the H battery.
    will have to Email them and ask.
    Thanks for the link.

    Well that was quick.
    Emailed Carolina Drones, and got a replay 20 minutes later, and on a Sunday. (maybe they should take over Yuneec customer service)
    Anyway, Frank states that "Yes they fit while in the case"
    Will order a set and post some pics when I get them.

    I ordered a set of the battery indicators, they come in a 4 pack.
    These things are just what I wanted. They are self adhesive, and have a little slider to expose either red or green. You can also park it in the middle to indicate STORAGE.
    Thanks for the link Charlie.

    there are voltage indicators that show voltage levels that can be set. I'll try and find the reference material. Then there is no question. set it for proper storage level and fly

    What I do is put all the batteries in the case right side up, so you can read them. When they are discharged, I simply put them back upside down to denote that they've been discharged.
