I have used Duracell and I have used store brand batteries. Consumer Reports and others claim that the store batteries are cheaper and perform as well as the name brands. This has not been my experience. I bought a bunch of a prominent electronic store brand batteries (AAA) for my Satellite TV remote (it uses 4, series parallel, and it eats them) I'm finding that with the store brand I have of 4 cells, one will frequently fail. Unless you have a way to loads the batteries while checking the voltage, it is hard to distinguish which one is bad. A single AAA cell flashlight works well. I have a multimeter that I got from an autoparts store. So I will continue to use the Coppertop. They simply last longer and the price is not so great that I am willing to put up with the annoyance of failing store brand batteries. Your mileage may vary and other disclaimers apply. :)
Here in Atlanta we had a white Christmas for the first time since 1882. So, instead of going to the store in frigid weather (southern style and yes, other parts of the country had/have it much worse) it is much easier to have Amazon send replacement batteries right to the home. There is not a big price difference from a local purchase but there is a big convenience difference. One of the primary attractions of these Duracell batteries is that they are made in the USA. Any time I can do my tiny part in helping to keep Americans employed I take that opportunity.
Duracell Great Batteries and Thru Amazon a Super Price. Like Stay with Quality Name Brand Batteries just to avoid Frustration You get in Lesser Cheap Brands. Really do Get What You pay for these Type of Batteries. So I Stick With Trusted Brands.
What's not to like? A bunch of batteries at a good price. Bought them quite a while ago and still have some left. They aren't the longest lasting batteries but were certainly a good value. Good for mice and keyboards.
I'm always using batteries. In one review, it was a dog's bark collar. In this review, being a runner, I need headlamp batteries because I tend to run at night. (I love my midnight runs... you can see the stupi... I mean cars coming from a mile away!) So I saw this good deal on the Coppertops and what I saw was what I got and I'm still pulling them out of the package for my headlamps.
Good price, great packaging, and if you go through batteries, aside from rechargeable batteries, I don't think you can go wrong.
The batteries look exactly like Duracell's, however the packaging is strange. First of all, I thought these batteries would come in one pack. They are two packs of batteries, 14 count each. The font on the packaging is strange and the numbers are written weird. They remind me of the fake Duracell's you buy in a dollar store. I just put them in a toy last night, so only time will tell how long they last. I wish I would've stuck with the 24 count pack because those come with the normal packaging I've become used to. I will update when I determine if the batteries lasted a normal time or died quickly like the cheaps and fakes do.
So many toys need batteries these days and its a big expense. So we have bought a bunch of rechargeable Sanyo batteries which serve the purpose. But they are expensive, so can't have them in large quantity. Also often its pain to reuse batteries from other toys (because they are hard to remove). So we bought these powerful batteries online in bulk and saved a few bucks. They last long and are value for money.
I like purchasing in bulk since we go thru batteries with remotes, portable lights, cameras, etc. Duracell is a brand name that I like and works well. They do seem to have a longer life than most all the off-brands so being able to order at this price was great.
