[Staples] Duracell Quantum AA Batteries (Pack of 16) $6.99

Staples currently has Duracell Quantum AA Alkaline batteries for $6.99 +tax per pack. Each pack contains 16 AA batteries.
https://www.staples.ca/products/199802- ... ies-16pack

This deal with Duracell Quantum still comes out slightly better than the Costco sale where the AA CopperTop 48-count pack sells for $21.99 ($6 off regular $27.99).


Edit (12/20): Seems OOS, cannot find the item on website anymore.

I understand that these batteries are discounted but why don't you guys simply buy eneloop batteries? Even original price for eneloop batteries will save you money in the long run and it doesn't have the problem of fast self discharge like regular rechargeable batteries. You're also saving the planet by producing less waste

Please buy rechargeable batteries instead, better for the environment.

Use to think this way but every rechargeable battery and charger was nothing but trouble for me. Gave up. Now it’s non rechargeables unfortunately.

There is nothing on RFD that saves the environment. Hate to break it to you but consumerism, capitalism and over-population will not go away if I recharge.

On that note, my end of times gear needs batteries too. In for 2 more.

Most of the devices sold now a days have an internal integrated rechargeable battery. How do you ppl use so many batteries?

Best mainstream Alkalines. Duracell even coppertops have always been superior to energizer

LOL at everyone here pointing to rechargeable to "save the environment". Well over 90% of the environmental damage is done at a commercial/industrial level. We are being shamed as individuals to do things that make the lobby groups justify their funding, and make others feel good that they were able "to make a difference". In fact, we haven't. What's needed is to make the political / industrial / commercial entities accountable to clean up their act, in order to see a difference.

Apparently the principle of individual accountability is lost on you. Buy a few more while you're at it, take my accountability with you!

Lead by example. If we all see each other holding ourselves accountable for the environment, we will feel more pressured to make the biggest changes in affecting the environment. The prime one being voting in the politicians that will make a difference. But you don't get to that point by s****ing on the environment and diffusing your own responsibility to the corporations.

I usually buy Primecables, right now 20 for $4 but been even cheaper in past sales with free shipping.

For low drain devices I tend to use alkaline (clocks, mice, flashlights etc) since the batteries lasts for months/years. For high drain Eneloop and AmazonBasics NiMh is best.

Harder to justify Eneloops when LADDA exists at Ikea.

FYI these are discontinued because they had their name and packaging changed, so this is an incredibly hot deal for the absolute best alkaline AAs ever created. the actual market dollar value for this performance is 4x higher
