Help with Nikon D5...

I bought a used D5 that came with two batteries.  Neither battery came with the white cap (pictured) to cover the contacts when in my bag.  Anyone have one to spare?  Or know where can I buy one?  Appreciate any help.  Really enjoying this camera.

Thanks,

Bennett

I wouldn’t worry about it. The cover is more for shipping and because the battery is $150+. The leads are recessed and shouldn’t be a huge deal in your bag or pockets. I’ve never had issues storing mine without these covers.

Try "camera battery case" on Amazon

Not really necessary . . . but here's an option besides the plastic cover:

A clear plastic ziploc sandwich bag works well to keep the dirt away from my spare batteries when I throw a bunch of stuff in the bag that I use as a camera bag.  My bag collects a lot of dirt and junk, and I find small zip lock bags also work well for memory cards, and to cover little bottles of hand sanitizer, and wet naps.

I've always carried two extra EN-EL4a batteries without caps, carelessly thrown in my camera backpack for almost a decade. Never an issue. And how could there be? It's extremely unlikely that anything small enough that could actually fit in the protective slots will wind up in anyone's photography bag. It would also have to be conductive and would need to be able to short a positive and a negative terminal. Staples are just about the only common item that could accidentally cause that issue.
