You might want to look at finger sheaths (available from chemists/drug 
stores/pharmacists) for poorly fingers that need to be protected in 
damaging environments.
You might giggle when you see them, and even more when you unravel one, but 
being latex and waterproof, they're real handy for a variety of uses...

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 
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 
use a piece of plastic tubing, you can close the top by cutting 4 slots in 
and push it in to the cavity. The top of the bore is rounded so that the 
"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.
