Dude, we have no idea which vendor you bought these from!!!
Besides, Alkaline batteries like these are completely obsolete. These are SANYO NEW 1500 eneloop 8 Pack AA Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries $24 for 8 batteries; each can be charged up to 1500 times; that's like 12,000 (yes, that's twelve THOUSAND) batteries for $23.34 (ok, you need a charger ($10), and electricity ($480 at 4˘ per charge * 12,000 charges), so that's $513. 12,000 of these Coppertops would be 600 $11.39 20-packs, and cost $6834. Oh, and look, these: AmazonBasics AA NiMH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries (8 Pack, 2000 mAh) are a bit cheaper.
I can't BELIEVE these Duracells are still a bestseller in the AA battery category. Well, actually, I can; people who still use Alkaline batteries have to buy a LOT MORE batteries that people who buy the new kind of ultra-long-lasting NiMH batteries!!
