Did you know not all batteries are created equal?
According to Consumer Reports, AA lithium batteries are best for high-drain devices, like cameras, while Alkaline is better for low-drain gadgets, such as remote controls.
But are certain brands higher quality, or are all batteries basically the same? It turns out some brands really are better than others. Here’s what you need to know about which batteries are best for your devices.
Promising review: I bought these batteries for [a] wireless rain gauge and wireless thermometer sensor. They work great for this purpose. I have used these for the past few years. They lasted for a year and worked perfectly last winter when the outside temperature got below zero for several nights.
Promising review: [I] have nest smoke detectors and no other battery works like these. [These are] the only ones that have the power to run [them ... I] will only use energizers from here on out. [It's] not worth the hassle to do otherwise.
Promising review: I bought some of these 5 years or go and just finished using that batch. I like this battery. It seems to work in everything I use them for; they work out of the package 5 years later. Best of all, they have the indicator on the side of each one so that you can check the charge.
Promising review: [I] never thought I would say this because I have always been a Duracell battery girl but Amazon Batteries are the BEST batteries I have ever bought. No leaking, they last so much longer than other batteries, like weeks longer. I'm honestly shocked at how good these are. ... You will love these batteries, I promise.
Promising review: I love knowing that I have a supply of double-As available when needed. ... [T]hese batteries are the epitome of the perfect Subscribe and Save item! Plus, with the Amazon label, I know they are a product that the company stands behind.
Promising review: Awesome batteries. ... I love the neon green and black design, it makes it easy for the family to identify our rechargeable batteries vs the old single use ones. Recharging is fairly quick and longevity is noticeably better than standard batteries. ... 100% recommend the Amazon basics rechargeable batteries.
Promising review: I use these for gaming and they are actually quite nice. ... These batteries last longer and when they are low I just change the batteries out and charge the ones I’m not using.
Promising review: I'd resisted buying rechargeable batteries because I didn't want to make the investment and because I didn't know if they'd last as long as non-rechargeables. I'm a total convert now. The charger works fast and the batteries appear to be holding their charge really well. Now, I can have as many as I need in my devices and plenty more on standby.
Promising review: I highly recommend these. I've used them countless times on my various devices and have saved a ton of money by recharging them. I also carry a USB charger that I plug into my laptop to recharge them for when I need more juice for my headphones. Very convenient. I've had these for about a year now and they still hold a charge as well as they did when they were new.
