nice design! occasionally they get caught up as they fall to the next level, i wonder if making it wider would reduce that? (or have the opposite effect)

Thanks! My experience with a wider version was that the batteries would become canted and get caught up, so I tried to improve on that by making it narrower (giving them less space to turn). My vague impression is that doing so reduced the frequency a little bit, but as you discovered it still occurs on occasion. If you wind up scaling the width (or something else) and finding a solution I'd be happy to link your remix or update this design.

What is the capacity of each when it is full?

They fit 12 batteries comfortably. If you want you can stack a few more on top (such that they're above the top of the holder, on top of the batteries in the holder), and it's still fairly stable.
