INHO, these types of items go bad quickly. You can pretend to think they will last on the shelf, but they will not. I would avoid.

The batteries work better in things like the Wii and digital cameras and they are less wasteful and in the long run, less expensive.
You must not have little kids, we've got about 30 Thomas trains that take aa or aaa batteries as well as a whole host of other battery powered toys. No point in rechargeable for them because there are so many different ones I'd need like 50 rechargeables

These are pretty decent batteries, I've bought them from Menards or Frys (or maybe both) in the past. Definitely a good deal, and a great deal if you buy 2+. It may seem like a huge amount of batteries, with two kids and some toys requiring 8+ batteries at a time- you can burn through these in a year.
Exactly! Also, don't forget that Alakalines have a very good shelf life, and if you DON'T refrigerate them they should retain 95% capacity after 8 years.

Bought 1 set of AA's but was tempted to buy 2 of each. Would have except I'm not sure of the shelf life. Anyone know how long they'd be good unused?
I think, therefore.."I-M".
