Frank, it depends what the other goodies are. Go to a car supply store and 
look for a piece of PVC tubing (or even a Medical Supply Outlet - they have 
all kinds of plastic tubing). The critical part is that the inside diameter 
not "snag" the battery while in the tube and that anything else you put in 
there is not draining the battery. The simplest way is to wrap the batteries 
in Saran Wrap or use a small plastic bag and stick them in that. This also 
allows you something to grab when you want to pull the batteries out. If you 
use a piece of plastic tubing, you can close the top by cutting 4 slots in it 
and push it in to the cavity. The top of the bore is rounded so that the four 
"flaps" will fold against each other and prevent the battery from grounding 
against the metal.
I am sure that LUGgers have come up with different solutions.
