Best Buy no longer offers the 10% price beat. They just match the price now.

I would have to disagree on it's depending on it's use. Batteries lose their capacity overtime and it also depends on the situation. If your using something day to day that can use up batteries quite a lot then hell yeah. If it's for a scale, emergency flashlight, tv remote, etc. I don't think you get as much use out of rechargeable.

I personally buy every 2 years or so a big 100 of the amazon AA and AAA it's 40 bucks in total and yes way past normal needs and such. But it's a safety yet living in Norther Ontario if the power does out or if all the sudden I need a demand or others I know need some I have them right there and then.

I also have the high powered LED Flash Lights that have the 3x AAA Batteries as emergency use and the standard is it like 2000mha? blue Battery for day to day use.

Either way to much frigan text but it's really on the situation of the persons needs.

There are a lot of dead laptop batteries around, you can harvest 18650 batteries from them. These are rechargeables. With that, you can buy all sort of battery-powered flashlights, headlamps, power banks using these batteries. A lot more powerful at no cost, save the environment as well....

I would suggest getting a flashlight that uses 18650 batteries if you really need a high powered light. Lights that use rechargeable lithium batteries are ridiculously bright these days, over 1000 lumens is quite common. And eneloops can keep a decent charge for a good number of years.

AA lithium batteries like the ones in OP are great tho. They should have a 10 year shelf life, and for me are more of an emergency thing. I don't use them unless everything else is dead.

I def want to get some of these lithiums to backup my rechargeables.

I do use the 18650. the 3x aaa is for emergencies when they run out. But I got a few 18650's for various flashlights.

These have their purpose. I use both rechargeables and lithiums depending on the device.

1) these have more capacity than NiMH rechargeables.
2) they work better in low temperatures. Rechargeable NiMH start to lose their voltage below 0C, these Lithiums are rated down to -40C. I use these in my garage door keypad outdoors.
3) these Lithiums have amazing shelf life. You can probably put these in your flashlight and it will still be 99% bright when you pull them out of your drawer 10 years from now. Good for devices that you need to rely on but don't use everyday.
4) these have a nomimal voltage of 1.5V and hold that voltage well even when cold, some devices don't work well with the lower voltages of NiMH. I put some fully charged Eneloops in my circuit tester, and it kept saying I had low batteries.
5) I use this battery in a little AA keychain light that I keep in my pocket. These Lithiums are half the weight of a rechargeable so I don't feel the weight in my pocket as much.

Gotta love Home Depot! Fantastic deal on batteries to last me a few years.

Bought 2 of each or 8 packs in all. Cashier was great and accepted the price match and discount. 8 packs in total for a total price of $21.40 before tax!

I can confirm that these are available, however the merchandising displays are mostly alkaline and about 5% lithium so shop early if it's lithium that you want. Remember, extreme cold weather performance is perhaps the best reason for using the lithium type.
