OT: Dry cell batteries - what do YOU buy? WHY?
Went to Wally World t-nite... one of the items I needed were some AAA batteries. As always, I am always wondering which brand to buy... EverReady, DuraCell, RayoVac, or WalMart's store brand, EverActive??? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wall.gif[/img] The EverReadys & Duracells are exact same price..., RayoVac a mite less, and EverActive lowest price (per unit). THEN... I see there are "new, improved" batteries for electronic devices. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/deal.gif[/img]
They're all alkaline (I guess)... so is there a 'better' battery? Or is it just another way of gouging a few more dollars outa the consumer(s)?
Is there an (easy) way (for us unsophisticated types) to test dry cells to quantify the power therein? Or, a good - unbiased by commercial interests - consumer report these thangs?
Enquiring minds want to know!
