For the first time since I was a kid I have had batteries corrode and ruin my equipment. This time it happened to my very expensive Mag-lite 3 Cell and 2 Cell L.E.D. flashlights. These Energizer batteries have "Energized" me to never buy anything made by this company ever again. My batteries were part of an 8 pack and the 3 unused batteries in the 8 pack were also corroded.
This reminds me of what "Burgess" batteries would do to anything you put them in. That company has long since gone out of business.

UPDATE:
-------
I emailed them about what happened to my flashlights and the rest of the 8 pack of unused batteries. 10 days later via U.S. Mail they did offer to repair or replace them and even included a prepaid label to send my flashlights to them for evaluation. I was able to clean them up enough to get them working again before I received the prepaid shipping label. I sent them another emial that I was able to get them working again and asked for tips on removing the rest of the corrosion. A week later they mailed me a coupon to cover the cost of the 8 pack of batteries, up to $15 and a letter from their technicians with tips on cleaning them up further. I am pleased with their response to my problem. Maybe a little scared to use their batteries again but now I know how they honor their guarantee. I will give them another shot. I will give the service department 5 stars and will up the overall rating to 3 stars.

These batteries are stamped with an October 2012 expiration date so I was not thrilled upon reciept of them. We are using them, so I can't really say how long they will last, but I just think its wrong for these sellers to knowlingly sell expired batteries.

Batteries leaked and Corroded my Flashlights and Remotes, I haven't had batteries corrode and leak since the old carbon heavy duty batteries back in the 70's, but these suckers leaked like a faucet. The batteries had a use by date of 2018.

Be sure to check the expiration date on your batteries when they arrive. I got some supposed to have a 5 year expire date and they only had 3. AMAZON tried to make it "right" and send me some with 4 year expiration dates while allowing me to keep the ones with 3 year expire dates::::-CAVEAT EMPTOR

I've long been a fan of Energizer batteries and actually tend to avoid Duracell because I have had problems with that brand leaking from time to time. However, I bought a pack of these before Christmas and many of them have leaked, almost ruining some items. I'm not yet ready to say bye-bye to Energizer, but I do think I'll go back to buying the Industrial Energizer batteries on eBay (if I can't find them here on Amazon.) Inside, they don't seem to last as long as other brands of batteries (including Energizer and Energizer Max,) but I've never had one leak. They are made to hold up to extreme conditions and actually perform very well in an outdoor thermometer I have. The cold and heat can drain other batteries quickly.

Batteries... D-Cells... They were fresh and had plenty of time left before they expired. What more do you need to know? One tip though, I found it's cheaper to buy them at Home Depot, but buying here is a good alternative if you are strapped for time.

The seller, eTailing, send me a pack of USED batteries that were in the plastic portion of a regular battery pack that was taped with clear packing tape with a home-printed label that says "Energizer Max Alkaline AAA Batteries, 24 Count New". Seriously? I will be adding my photos to this product so you can see what they actually sent. Avoid this one completely.

EDIT:
I cannot upload photos for this product or to this review. If I can find a way to do so, I will upload them to hopefully save a future buyer some hassle. I promptly returned the garbage that was sent. It's a good thing I bought on Amazon.

The batteries were DOA. Device wouldn't even power on. Borrowed a set from the guy next to me to make sure it wasn't my device and voila, powered on. Amazon sent me dead batteries.

advice: buy batteries at a local retailer.

I'm upset that I need to even write a bad review for batteries of all things...
But yeah, I bought the AA16 pack a few months ago. And I used them sparingly. Recently I started using them for my wireless keyboard

Before I go any further, I thought something was suspicious when I had received them.The reason for that is because the package that the batteries were in was already opened. Meaning whoever was selling this had already opened this .
But at the time I thought maybe they got banged up really badly during the delivery process. Was that stupid of me to assume? DEFINITELY.
Fast forward, to actually tonight, I am streaming some games and I noticed that nothing was registering. I thought that my keyboard was messed up but it turned out that the batteries had already drained... Completely.
It's funny that they did that seeing how I had only put them in a few days ago.
I tried a new pair fresh from the box. Nope. Tried again; not having it. And so I am currently down to my second to last pair.
I guess it has just enough juice for me to write this painfully bad review.I don't know what happened at the time I made this purchase. But this is just absolutely ridiculous. And it doesn't help that I was unable to communicate to my stream followers that the batteries kept dying.

So yeah, I'm about 99% sure I was sold used batteries.
Before anyone asks, I kept this box safely tucked away until I needed them.
And I opened the back flap before realizing that it was already opened.
Also, you can see my little battery graveyard in the background of the photo I shared.
