That became a pertinent question for me lately as the SDHC/SDXC memory cards
I've most recently purchased came without the little plastic case included. While I think the manufacturers should include the inexpensive cases by default, none have yet asked me for my opinion. The other problem is that I've started to accumulate a variety of memory card case sizes that have become at least slightly annoying to deal with.
I was looking for something very compact but wanted at least a little protection for the cards. My memory cards are usually kept in other cases or my pocket where they have an additional layer of protection afforded them.
For me, the right solution was found on eBay
. For $6.95 with free standard shipping, you get 10 small plastic cases
just large enough to comfortably hold SDHC cards. I purchased two lots and now have all of my cards neatly stored in much less space than the pre-latest-purchased cards consumed.
If you prefer the more protective, larger case size or if you need to store CompactFlash/CF cards, this eBay auction
may have the cases you are looking for. Same seller and same price.
