Things are looking up, slightly. Some time ago I picked up a “Really Useful Box” at Staples. The rectangular board fits nicely inside. A larger version of the same box, would include enough room for the battery switch and battery. The box itself is not entirely watertight; it needs a bead of silicone around the rim. Note: Really Useful Boxes has a bizarro shipping policy for tiny boxes; $10 will ship up to 5 boxes, which arrive in an comparatively huge double-layered cardboard, suitable for shipping something heavy and delicate, not a handful of tiny plastic boxes.

Here’s the box, with the shunt resistor and “indicator” LED siliconed onto the outside.
