Adequate for the purpose
on June 3, 2012
We have a toddler who is very much into the hex bug craze. Of course, the "real" hex bug batteries run for two to three bucks per battery. I enjoy making my son happy, but I also enjoy being able to do things like pay my bills and buy groceries and gas. These batteries seemed like a good compromise to do a little of both.
All in all, I'm very happy with the value I received for this purchase. for less than it would cost to purchase 10 HBB (Hex Bug Branded) batteries, I have 100. Now, some people have noted that these don't last quite as long, and I would tend to agree with that assessment. The big thing to remember is that no battery, not even the unrighteously priced HBB batteries lasts very long in these toys. That's just going to be par for course if you're powering an unbalanced servo using a small watch battery. In my opinion, the difference in run duration is negligible, and in fact I even had one battery outlive a HBB battery once (we had bought a new bug and at the same time replaced a battery in another). For the cost, you just can't go wrong.
Bottom line: I would highly advise purchasing these to any parent who wants to both indulge their child's hex bug obsession as well as keep the bank from foreclosing on their home.
