Rechargeable Alkaline Battery
AmazonBasics 36 Pack AAA High-Performance Alkaline Batteries, 10-Year Shelf Life, Easy to Open Value Pack
I had been buying Rechargeable Alkaline Battery (AA, AAA, C, D) from Sam’s Wholesale club because the bulk prices were better than small battery packages, but I switched to AmazonBasics.
The reason is the price. Of course, that brings up the question of performance. Which is better? I have 3 kids and a zillion electronic toys. We replace batteries often around here, and frankly there are so many electronic toys, controllers, and remotes, that I have a hard time keeping up with performance of specific batteries.
But I came to a realization after comparing prices between the 48 pack of AmazonBasics, and the 48-pack of Duracell at Sam’s. For the batteries I was buying, the Duracells would have to last 66% longer to justify the price difference. Now I can’t be sure which lasted longer, but I know for sure the Duracells I used to use were NOT lasting 66% longer than the AmazonBasics. They may have been better, but not THAT MUCH better. I’ll stick with the AmazonBasics.Promised Review By D. Campisi
