Default Battery straps?

anyone know where i can use for a battery strap 0n an xray t2 instead of the 31 dollar holder for it.
someone told me not to use velcro but some sort of tape.

Thats the stuff you want. You can get it in different colours and one roll will last you a while because you can reuse one strip a few times before it looses its stickyness.

You can also use velcro straps, that loop around like the strapping tape, but instead you just velcro it to itself.

Honestly, if you're going to use tape, don't waste your time with the Xenon stuff. Get 3M strapping tape, you can find it at Office Depot, Staples, etc. Much stronger and lasts longer.

Get 3M packing tape, it's got the fibers running through it. You may be happier to just get the strap and not worrk about taping batteries in.
