    Default Rotating your batteries- how do you keep track?

    So, the title basically says it.
    After over a year of vaping and having to retire some old batteries, and buying new ones, I have decided that I really need to keep track of how I rotate batteries. I tried numbering them with a sharpie and charging in numerical order but the ink comes off after a little juice gets on a battery or from handling.

    So....How does everyone mark their batteries in order to charge them in proper rotation?

    I put tape and numbered the tape.

    Or use the sharpie and then cover it with scotch tape to keep it from rubbing off. As long as your batteries aren't a tight fit already, a single wrap of tape shouldn't give you any issues

    Sharpie or paint pen, then cellophane tape over the numbers.

    I use a label maker, put the initials of the vendor I purchase from and the date they arrive. I figured if I was having problems with batteries, I could see if they were all from a specific vendor. No problems so far.

    Masking tape torn into a small pieces. I then number them #1, #2, etc. I put them on the battery to keep track.

    i store my batts in little plastic boxes i got off ebay and rotate them in the boxes the position in the box tells me if its newly charged or the next one to be used

    Thanks everyone- I think I'm going to have to put numbers on them. I too keep my batteries in my cases (I have zip up ones) and if one is spent, it goes in upside down. But since I have two others in the house that bring their batteries down and plop them on my desk for me to charge, it's hard to keep up with unless I number them....too many from too many people (although only 3) to keep up with keeps me from keeping up with them with any accuracy. My current method is like a couple of different people writing checks out of the same checking account and not reporting who wrote what....

    Use nail polish, and apply small 0's and 1's, using the binary system.

    000, 001, 010, 011, 100, 101, 110, 111.

    If you have more than eight batteries, use four binary digits.
