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?
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%.Read more ›
And, really, who doesn't want that famous Amazon smiley on their batteries?? lol
