[Costco] Energizer lithium AAA 20pk - 14.99

Probably the best aaa nonrechargable u can get

Energizer lithium AAA 20pk - 14.99 at costco

The duracell optimum next to it is 9.97 for a 18pk, but with how crappy duracell qc r nowadays(leak issue).. n compare performance, these energizer still win out

I'm also curious. If the 20 x AA is 14.99 as well, it is the hottest price I have seen after the $2.88/4pc deal at No Frills a while back.

In this situation, quantity over quality maybe a better option

I purchased Amazon Basics AAA alkaline batters for 5$ when they were on sale

https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00NTCHCU2/

Don’t know how they compare to the Lithium batteries but at one third the price, I can buy three times as much and I am sure three Amazon batteries will outlast one Energizer Lithium AAA for the same price

My brain is conflicted with the incongruous idea of Lithium Throwaway batteries
Tis a genuine oxymoron

Usually twice a year. Wait for Boxing Day and see if it drops. I last purchased in April. I use these for TV remotes and my humidifier has an auto flush that uses them, I have yet to change the batteries in either device. It has been over a year

Even at current price, you are saving 50% over the Energizers

There are specific use cases that are best suited for these lithium batteries where a traditional alkaline battery just doesnt do that well. I doubt people are buying these to put into a remote or some RC toy.

Guys, it's not just about quantity of battery for the dollar. These Lithiums are suited for use cases where Alkaline batteries completely fail.

If you try to use an alkaline battery for high drain devices used in -20 temperature, they will completely fail you. Also, you can't rely on Alkalines in long term storage, they will probably leak on you and destroy your device.

Mostly I avoid alkalines, I use these Lithiums for a certain subset of devices, and NiMH everywhere else. Alkalines mostly only go into toys and cheap devices.
Rich or poor, paying full price for anything is for suckers. Be an informed purchaser by searching RFD for the all-time-low price.

Duracell used to be fine, but these past few years, their QC been kinda lacking and I found their battery seem to be leakier then norm, even when compared to other brands of alkaline batteries.

I got those amazon as well, got a box 100 for $16.85 after tax but alkaline always run a risk of leaks(so far 5 of my Amazon had leaked). I prefer to keep these energizer lithium around for devices I cant risk having a battery leak.

Dam, bought an 8 pack for the same price on Amazon last week. Oh well.
Great deal OP. I use it for my wireless mouse with an adapter to lower the weight vs regular AA's.

*ANY* brand of alkaline batteries will leak and potentially ruin your device.

This is why you run lithium in devices that are costly, or are used in low temperatures or seldomly used for long periods of time

I am. I stopped using alkaline altogether a while back due to batteries leaking and damaging my devices. So now I buy non rechargeable lithiums to use almost everywhere since they never leak.

They are also shelf stable for years, and last much much longer in high drain devices especially at low temps (like 4x longer).

The only other battery I might buy is rechargeable Eneloops for toys which will require constant battery changes.

Exactly the wrong way to think about it.

The problem with alkaline batteries is their propensity to leak and ruin devices.

In low power drain devices, used in cold or seldomly used, lithium is the ONLY wise choice. Some manufactures specifically list alkaline batteries NOT to be used in their devices because of potential for leakage damage.
