Good batteries - absolutely lousy packaging
on November 10, 2010
I always pack AA and AAA batteries. Frankly, it is often easier to just use alkalines and incur the expense rather than be faced with need to recharge.
The Energizer batteries are fine. They're just as good as any other major brand.
But the packaging on these is absolutely horrible.
I wound up using kitchen utensils to force open what should have been a pre-scored flap. Then I had to force open the plastic container that actually held the batteries.
I have no idea of why they design the package this way, but it is ridiculous. Fortunately, I was at home and had a kitchen drawer and a tool box to resort to. Had I been on the road, this should be simple task ould have turned into a major irritant.
Like I said, the batteries are fine, but I'll be avoiding this brand until they change the packaging.
