I also performed the same test on Duracell Copper Top, and Energizer Max. Their performance was nearly identical to the Procell. More interestingly, I tested the Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA cell. This cell was 4 times the cost of a procell at $1.27 per cell! However the capacity was only 1.5 times that of the Procell. So don't waste your money on these batteries, they're much more expensive per unit of capacity. The capacity of all these batteries were measured in Watt-Hours. Here are the numbers.
AA Amazon Battery = 2.71 Wh. My cost per cell = $0.291. Cost per Watt-Hour = $0.107
AA Duracell Procell = 3.09 Wh. My cost per cell = $0.321. Cost per Watt-Hour = $0.104
AA Energizer Lithium = 4.86 Wh. My cost per cell = $1.27. Cost per Watt-Hour = $0.261
This test was done using an op-amp circuit to maintain a constant current load at 100ma. Voltage and current were being logged ounce per minute and this data was used to calculate the Amp-Hour with a 0.8 volt cutoff. The Watt-Hour was then calculated by multiplying the Amp-Hour by the average voltage from the beginning of the test to 0.8 volts. All batteries mentioned were tested using this same method. Note that the capacity of these batteries can change dramatically under different conditions. The same battery under a heavy load will have a fraction of the capacity that it would under a light load. This data is only good for a comparison when choosing what battery is worth buying at what price. Unless your device loads the battery at a constant current of 100ma.
In summery, the Amazon batteries are not bad batteries (at least based on this test using the AA cell). If you choose to shop around for a name brand battery, stay at or below $0.33 per cell. Anything above $0.33 per cell will be more expensive per unit capacity than the Amazon battery. Oh, and definitely stay away from the Energizer Lithium unless expense is not an issue. These batteries are only worth the additional cost if your application requires a light weight and relatively high capacity battery regardless of cost. These batteries are surprisingly light weight compared to an alkaline.lkaline.
8 failures in 3 months once I started using them costing me over $40 to replace the damaged battery holders.
Oh well, not worth crying about $13 worth of weak batteries. I am sure others have had great luck with the same AmazonBasics AA batteries. I just wanted to add my experience so others can make an informed decision. Good luck!
I would certainly use these for applications around the house... toys, remotes, keyboard/mouse, etc, but we need to make sure our batteries don't die in the middle of a church service, so we'll still to the good ones for our application.
For example, I have two small strands of fairy lights that are battery dependent (pictured with AA battery for size comparison). Each strand needs 3 AA batteries. They have a timer allowing for 8 hours of use every day. When the ikeabrand batteries died (after being in use for 1 year), I replaced the batteries with these amazon basics batteries. The amazon basic batteries only lasted one month. That's an 11 month difference for the same amount of usage. Maybe I just got a bad batch. *shrugs* I am, and will always be, an amazon basics purchaser, but I'll go back to other battery brands once these run out. (which won't take too long at this rate.)

Wenn eine Batterie es nicht schafft eine kleine LED Kerze über längere Zeit zum Leuchten zu bringen, dann sind auch die 48 Stück überflüssig und auf Dauer zu teuer.
Wir nutzen diese AmazonBasic, AA in unseren kleinen LED Kerzen (Foto) die eigentlich kaum Energie benötigen und wir diese täglich 4- 6 Stunden am Tag brennen lassen, doch mit diesen AmazonBasics Performance Alkali, AA Batterien bleiben sie nach wenigen Tagen schon dunkel. Leer komplett leer!
Da kaufen wir doch besser wieder die Varta LONGLIFE Power, die nicht wesentlich teurer ist, dafür aber länger hält.
--- Fazit ---
Enttäuschung pur! Davon haben wir uns mehr versprochen, zumal andere Batterien deutlich länger halten als diese AmazonBasics Batterien und deshalb sind wenn auch 48 Stück auf Dauer diese zu teuer.
Ich hoffe dass ich trotz meiner Enttäuschung, euch mit dieser Rezension bei der bevorstehenden Entscheidung etwas weiter helfen konnte, denn keiner möchte für etwas Geld bezahlen und am Ende enttäuscht werden!
Wenn ihr meiner Meinung seid, würde ich mich über ein hilfreich freuen!
These are not Alkalines I guess... not even Zinc Carbon (Dry Cell).
Very much dissatisfied as I Bought them over Duracell because of the pricing and “amazon basics” assurance. SHAME AMAZON
It's great to have a bulk store of batteries at such an affordable price. I now have a drawer stocked with batteries and not a jumbled up collection, of different brands missed with part-used batteries. I restock when I start to get low and I'm never caught short.
As I said, these will do for 90% of applications but if you do need more power for a particularly high drain device then look for lithium-based batteries, they will outperform these amazon basics but expect to pay a lot more. It would be nice to see Amazon basics add lithium batteries to there current offerings for such occasions.

I have been using them for a few weeks in a range of devices, remote controls, white noise machine, annoying kids toys etc and on all occasions they have performed perfectly. One of my daughters toys eats batteries and these have last as long as if not slightly longer on a set of batteries than it was on brand name ones so very happy!
Comes in a neat little cardboard box you can keep the batteries in.
No issues with these and came at a steal of a price. Perfect for Christmas and generally all year round for everything else.
