In short: Have a high opinion of Amazon but these batteries are a GENUINELY HORRIBLE value due to very low capacity.

This isn't opinion, we installed these same day they came (out of AAA's) and these batteries exhibited a very short lifespan (Duracell's last much longer in the same applications). So I checked the capacity rating on the battery and THERE ISN'T ONE. This is a bad sign, could not remember ever checking any small alkaline cell (AAA, AA, C, or D) that did not have the capacity rating printed on the battery.

So I tested three of these AmazonBasics cells (we have an accurate capacity tester to test R/C racing batteries). The three tested out at 252, 244, and a whopping 211mAh. Your average alkaline AAA battery will test out at around 700mAh capacity. So the AmazonBasics AAA cells (at least the ones I received and tested the next day) are junk.

Could be a bad batch, but is it worth it to buy batteries that may arrive near dead?

Dear Amazon Shopper,

I am no scientist. I don't know much about the fundamental mechanics of batteries, nor do I know what, chemically, differentiates a good battery from a great one. I do know, however, that what I want (and what most of you probably want) is the best value I can get for my money. On that subject, I have the following to say:

These batteries are significantly less-expensive, per-unit, than their name-brand counterparts. In order to get, for example, Duracell batteries at the same per-battery cost, you would have to buy a package of 100, which I suspect most people would be hard pressed to burn through before the batteries decline. If you subscribe-and-save for the Amazon Basics batteries, cost parity becomes virtually unattainable.

Depending upon the quantity and brand of battery you're looking at, the big names are anywhere from 17% to 80% more expensive than these batteries (those percentages increase when subscribe-and-save comes into play - note that I have not seen any non-amazon batteries that are S&S eligible, otherwise this factor would be irrelevant). In light of this, the question becomes not whether these Amazon batteries last as long as the big-name batteries, but whether the big name batteries last between 17% and 80% longer.

Since my physical chemistry is a bit rusty and I'm fresh out of lab-coats, I haven't exactly conducted any side-by-side tests. From a purely subjective standpoint, I don't notice that these Amazon batteries deplete any more or less quickly than their name-brand counterparts. That being said, IF name-brand batteries DO last longer (which I couldn't say), they would be more toward the 17% end of the spectrum than the 80%.

I ordered these batteries primarily to use in LED flashlights. I tried them in multiple flashlights of different brands and styles and all they did were flicker a bit. The old batteries I was replacing worked better than these so called new ones. I'm not sure what the problem is, none of the batteries in the package worked. I've never had this happen with any other battery at any price or brand. AmazonBasics Batteries are absolutely the worse batteries that I've ever used. Don't waste your money on these!!!

Bought these two years ago. The ones I had not used will not last a second in a bubble machine. I tried energizer cells that powered it with no problems. This seems like proof that these will not last on the shelf more than a year.I definitely would not use these for a low power device such as a remote control or rely on them for emergency flashlights.

Amazon has gone into the battery business! These batteries are a great alternative to the more expensive name brands. And so far, the quality seems just as good. The price is great and it's even better if you use "Subscribe and Save". Also, they came in a nice box ("frustration-free" packaging) which fits just perfectly in my drawer (I just cut off the lid). It kept the batteries from rolling around in the drawer.

And, really, who doesn't want that famous Amazon smiley on their batteries?? lol

These AAA alkaline batteries are just what the weather stations ordered. I just added a 3 sensor weather station to the house and along with the main unit it requires 10 AAA batteries (not included) to make it operate. And by golly, it works and works perfectly because of its well made components and its ability to send signals back and forth with a full set of fresh batteries. Based on prior experiences with AmazonBasics batteries I feel certain I will be delighted with the quality and longevity of these. I chose these over a lithium battery because of cost per battery. The cost per battery for these is significantly less than the same lithium ion battery I had to go with them and have no regrets. Great quality and super cost.

I've been buying AmazonBasics AA on subscipriton for a while now and just added these AAA. I only wish Amazon made Cs, Ds, and 9Vs as well. I've got 3 kids with lots of toys that drain batteries like crazy (especially when left on over night!). We talked about getting rechargeable ones and still might for some of the big power hogging toys, but these are so cheap and work as well as Energizer or Duracell (unlike other "off brands" which seem to start loosing full capacity with in a day or two). And the subscription is fantastic. I've got mine at 5 months. I'm getting a new shipment next month and I've got 5 of each battery left right now. That way I never need a new battery and have to go to the store to get it.
