A hundred batteries?? That would power 50 Gameboys, or one Gameboy continuously played for several months!

If you don't have a ton already, this is a great steal for having some spares around. Great for flashlights/remotes etc. 100 may be excessive, but hey, that's how woot rollz.

I loaded up on the Fuji batteries a couple woot-offs ago. Agree they were junk. They were carbon, and fail in the Wii and other electronics. These ones are alkaline.

A GM branded battery? Interesting.

Just make sure to mind the "best used by 2018" date. Most major alkaline batteries, when you buy them, usually have a "best used by" date almost 10 years from the day you buy them, because usually hey're pretty fresh. Remember that batteries slowly deteriorate and also lose their charge over time. Fresh Alkalines usually rate around 1.675 volts. These are probably around the 1.63 or so point. Decent, but try to use them up fairly quickly.

I had an 8-pack of AA's I kept around for use in a small telescope (old Meade ETX-90EC) and the batteries all corroded together from being close to each other and leaked. "Best by" date on those was 2016. Glad these brand new batteries weren't in my scope.

Got THESE from woot awhile ago, and they are some of the best batteries ive ever had. I got them because they are super alkaline, and tested them against regular duracell and these last more than 2x as long. Very impressed with the quality/cost ratio!

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.

About three months ago I asked a kid what game he was playing on his game boy. he asked me what a game boy was and correctly told me he was playing a Nintendo DS. I'm too young to start feeling old gat dangit!

These batteries are good for devices like TV remotes, LED flashlights, travel alarm clocks, kitchen scales and other minor devices.

If you try to use them in stuff like Xbox360 controllers, wireless mice, cameras, audio transmitters, or other high-end devices they will drain in hours.

Since I think this discussion will pretty go along the typical battery discussions of the past (In other words, it's like buying a lottery ticket with a pretty good chance of winning, but it's still a lottery ticket only rivaled by the King of Shaves), I'll try my first (and perhaps last) attempt at humor since I'm severely sleep deprived.

"Did you hear about the new really cheap batteries? The price is bordering on criminal. They're being made from Morton's Salt."
"Wait, what are you talking about?"
"Of salt in batteries."

Edit: $14.99 tonight

They can't be any worse than those Fugi batteries that have been on here so many times in the past. Or at least I hope not.

Those were not alkaline... and these are.. super alkaline at that! They work great in electronics.

Those 'solid' 3.5 star reviews from Amazon came from only 7 customers, and two of course had sad stories to tell.

I really think it's important to note the number of opinions, since a small number tells us less reliably the general view - not just stars. For example, I find myself asking for the highest rated of a product and what pops to the front? - Positive views by one soul.

Obviously, I need more electrics in my life, however.

If you are buying batteries by the 100s for home use it's time to buy a recharger.

The batteries work better in things like the Wii and digital cameras and they are less wasteful and in the long run, less expensive.

AC Delco is not GM, just a packaging company. I would suspect Wells electronics to be the manufacturer of these batteries.

Au contraire grasshopper... I feed one of these to my wireless mouse every 2 months... and I can't tell you how many times I've left the mouse lit overnight... So there's 200 months of mousing around around for me... well beyond the expire date... fortunately SWMBO find ways of snacking on these cylindrical morsels...

In for two, one of each size. Can't ever have enough batteries. Gotta give props to the guy linked above that did all the testing. Wish I had that much time on my hands.

My rule for a cheap AA alkaline is 25 cents or less. This works because after shipping, they come in at 20 cents each. 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.

If you need these to put them on your shelf for a rainy day, buy something else. However, if you have battery eating monsters in you home, and will use these in the next 2 years, this is a great deal. I have them in sizes from AA thru D cell from previous woots, and they work great. You can't beat the price. They work grat in the transmitters and receivers of the kids' RC cars and boats.

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

My husband gets jealous of my AAA batteries. I can vouch for this guy. AC Delco work at least that long. :-)

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".
