About 3 years ago, I bought two packs of 12, one to keep around the house for smoke detectors and other devices, and a pack to use at church in our wireless microphones.
They were okay for the wireless microphones, because forgetting to turn off the mics didn't really test the longevity of them. I'd probably buy them again for that reason + the low price.
But for home use, they just didn't last. Smoke detectors lasted about 4 months before chirping when the batteries were newer. After two years at home (shelf life dated 2011), the remaining batteries were dead. They come with plastic caps attached, so I know they didn't short out and discharge themselves.
Keep in mind, this was quite some time back. Have they improved? Not likely, but possible.
I have a Duracell Ultra in my bedroom smoke detector, it's been in there for about two years and is still running strong. But these ProCells, and my poor experience with AA rechargables from Duracell, have seriously weakened my resolve to buy their brand in the future.
I hope my experience is useful in your decision making process.
Since both batteries loose their charge at the same rate, it makes more sense to purchase by the volume you use. Hoarding them for years, will just leave you buying fresh anyway.

These batteries were weak or dead. When I received them, I put several in my smoke detectors. One was dead when I put it in the smoke detector. I threw it away not realizing that all the batteries were dead or weak. Within 3 months, the others were dead and the smoke detectors were emitting the low battery chirps. I checked a few more in the box and they were also weak.
I contacted the seller and they said "You may return only UNUSED, UNOPENED, in ORIGINAL PACKAGING, items in RE-SELLABLE CONDITION." There was only one package which contained all the batteries. Obviously, I had to open it to use the batteries. And, since the batteries were dead or weak, they weren't in RE-SELLABLE CONDITION. When I explained that to the seller, the response was the only way to get the refund is to return the batteries.
Most sellers bend over backwards to make things right when something goes wrong. This seller does not care about the quality of its products. Nor do they care about making things right.
I see they sell actual medical products. I would be very concerned about buying anything medically related from this seller as it may be like the batteries they sold me -- substandard. And, they may not stand behind the product if something is wrong.
This has just been my experience - over daily use, over many months, with set after set of ProCell AA batteries. Take it for what its' worth.
