While this is cheap, I hope people are buying rechargeable ones to save our environment. I am now only using rechargeable batteries.

Thanks OP. Used my Ebates certificate to buy 100 AA and 100 AAA which should last me for a few years since I mostly use rechargeable batteries.

How does this compare to other Alkaline batteries?

I normally use rechargeable however 1.2v doesn't work well with my Schlage doorlock.

it's hard to know if these batteries are any good because Amazon seems to have changed the formula of their batteries going by the description. Some people have reported they got some duds which started leaking very quickly, maybe they fixed that problem?

I'd say, use alkalines in things that aren't mission critical and rechargeables in everything else. Also lithium AAs are an option too if you need something that works in extreme cold (like my outdoor keypad for garage door)

I've only bought the Amazon Performance batteries and myself haven't had any issues so far ...

While I use rechargeables where I can, there are a lot of situations where it doesn't make sense or high risk of loosing the rechargeable batteries ... I'm amazed how many people will change batteries and throw out the old ones WITHOUT checking to see if they are rechargeables :/

I also don't trust rechargeables in critical things like smoked Detectors or CO2 ... Mind you, with our home Reno's I'm going to move to hardwired Detectors at some point

How long are these batteries good for if buy them and keep them for a while? like storing them for future use without losing their charges.

Some of mine are a couple years stored without any issues in a cool place ... but can be YMMV though

My Schlage lock last 2 to 3 months on 1.5v battery and less than a month on rechargeable 1.2v.

We use these AmazonBasics at church for the microphones - high turnover. We tried rechargeables, but over time they became too unreliable. These are quite good.
