4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value AAA Batteries - Recommended, May 20, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Maxell LR03 AAA Cell 36 Pack Box Battery (723815) (Health and Beauty)
These Maxell AAAs are a good value for batteries that are a step above generics, but not as long lasting as higher-end brands (like Duracell Coppertop AAA 20 Count Pack - which I also recommend). We use these in a MP3 speaker system that gets used every day and we find that these generally give out a day or so before Duracells (an unscientific observation).

The Maxell batteries come in at about 32 cents apiece vs 50 cents for Duracells (we have Amazon PRIME so get free shipping). The pack we received have a shelf-life of 5 years (2015), which is plenty long for the rate we go through these.

Recommended!

Thanks for the review! Just like you said, the shelf life on these batteries is January 2015.

For those of you who are just curious, the picture on the website is really kinda blown up - this little tiny box almost fits inside the palm of your hand!

If you find you get through disposable primary 1.5V dry cells (aka batteries) at a great rate, then you might want to consider so-called "ready to use", precharged Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeables that retain their charge much longer than traditional rechargeable dry cells. (I note that your review is almost a year old so you may already have done this.) The Sanyo Eneloop AAA NiMH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries (4 Pack) are highly regarded here by Amazon buyers and a very good buy in my experience.

We switched over almost entirely to ready to go rechargeables a couple of years back, despite their greater initial cost. We use them in digital cameras, MP3 players, plus wall clocks etc where traditional rechargeables used to go flat too quickly. Anything that takes AA or AAA dry cells will run on ready to use rechargeables.

You can also buy plastic adaptors for using groups of AA sized rechargeable ready to use dry cells in torches, flashlights, radios etc that take C, D and the large 9V batteries. They have saved us a small fortune in throw away, non-rechargeable dry cells and are good for the environment too. A quick charger like the Energizer Rechargeable 15 Minute Charger will recharge them in about fifteen minutes. It should be noted, however, that quick charging does heat up the cells a lot, even with the charger's built in cooling fan, and thereby reduce their life somewhat.
