Buy rechargeable! It's so worth it. I used to hunt down packages of batteries on sale but it's so much better just having a pile of rechargeable ones.

UGH, just bought 36 for $12 from amazon.
Great deal and most batteries store well, good to have for zombie apocalypses for flashlights.

are they store brand or name brand?

just a warning that I bought some Home Depot AA and AAA batteries once. They were on display as soon as you walk in the store and were nice and affordable - and had some heft to them so I thought there would be good.

I was so wrong.

They leaked acid like nobodies business.

Like every single battery would leak within a couple of weeks inside any device.

not only a waste of money but a lot of clean-up afterwards.

moral of the story: you get what you pay for.

Got a name brand? SKU number? Link to them on the website? Name of the store you found these in? This is kind of a useless post without this information. Might as well post "home depot has some good deals on tape measures" and leave it at that.

Alkaline batteries are rated at 1.5V a cell but drop in rechargeable cells are all 1.2V a cell. Seems this difference isn't acceptable in quite a few devices that want their 3V. Now I have 16 batteries that are essentially useless. Before buying rechargeable ensure your devices can handle that 0.3V drop per cell.

Looks like they are Reactor brand 1.5V. $5.97 plus $1.20 environmental handling fee.
Item: # 5314197 Model: # 30XAAA
Picture shows best before date of 2018 but hard to tell if that's what you actually get.

What is your device that doesn't take them?

I'm kind of amazed I haven't run in to one yet. I do have a weather station where it flashes low battery on the remote side- but I've learned to ignore that!

Are rechargeable worth it for things like remotes that drain slowly ?

The older disney read along books from Costco taking two AAA batteries won't power on with rechargeable.
Snap circuit lab exercise the motor not strong enough to propel the propeller wheel in mid-air when using rechargeable.
