    electrical tape should do the trick, just make sure to pull it tight so it won't make the battery too much thicker. another thing you could do is resleave it in shrink tube. but i would leave the plastic top ring on unlike the guy in this video, also if you could find some thinner tube that would be better as well.

    Battery cases are cheap and prevent this problem.

    I read about this as a warning here so I had been carrying a separate battery in a pocket with nothing else. Usually one of my back pockets. Then I received 4 VTC5's yesterday and each one of them was contained in a rubbery sleeve. Awesome little safety device for carrying a single battery.

    Here's what it looks like if you've never seen one...
