good price. But I won't have enough AAA stuff to consider buying it. I'll just end up having more random batteries all over the place.

Good deal, if I didn’t stock up during ikea clearance, I would definitely buy a pack or two. I actually have more things that use AAA than AA (remotes, sensor lights, mice, laser pointer, LED flashlights, etc).

What's the better option... 800mah * 24 or 2000mah * 12 both are nearly the same price....

I'd go with the second option. But that's because I don't have any use for 24 batteries, so I prefer higher capacity.

Be careful, the 12 pack is AA. AAA max capacity is around 1000mAh.

Was just about to pull the trigger when I realized there was a +30% tax on this pack in Ontario. Like really? Ok, HST, nothing you can do about that, but should these not be exempt from this tax grab disguised as an "Environmental Handling Fee". What a crock of shit. These are helping keep 1000 batteries out of the landfill you morans!

They are $16.79 each if you get 2 packs via a business account.

Yeah, it's funny. Last time I bought alkaline batteries there was no environmental fee. Now there is a fee on rechargeables. Reverse logic.

It’s kinda funny, in bc they actually charge more for rechargeable battery than disposable. Isn’t recharging actually better for the environment? Oh well one time charge, 1000x use is still a better deal in the long run. You are right the eco fee is more than the HST…

Under the new rules, there is no set environmental fee for any product. The amount of the fee charged is decided by the business and must reflect the actual cost of recycling that product.

An environmental fee is not a government tax and cannot be represented as mandatory, a regulatory charge, or an RPRA fee. It is a fee charged at the discretion of a business to recover their costs related to recycling the product.

Unfortunately it applies for all batteries so unless you don’t use battery, you will be stuck paying taxes on them. I mean I guess you could goto another province to buy your battery if you want to avoid taxes that badly…

Except it doesn't apply to all batteries. When was the last time you were charged environmental fees for buying AA and AAA batteries? I've never had to pay those before. Now they're charging it for rechargeable batteries that are each keeping 1000s of batteries out of landfills? Reverse logic. No deal.
