I hope the batteries last longer then the company.

Shazam! I hope they last longer than Kodak too! Them would be some serious batteries!

In all seriousness, according to the "stuff you bought" link, I got 1 pack of each in Aug last year, I'm still using them, have not had any DOA's and no leakage. As for how long they last - meh. I have lithiums and rechargeables for when necessary. These are perfect for non essential battery powered devices. For your battery powered kids or the devices that keep your regular kids out of your hair.

Let me know when you have rechargeable batteries. I'm not that eco-friendly nut but I can not understand why people don't use rechargeables more. The number of remotes and other needs, warrant it.

Batteries are so dramatic. Other things get old or break, but batteries...they die....

How do THESE batteries compare to the last bunch of 100 super alkaline batteries Woot sold a month or so ago?

I think, therefore.."I-M".

I bought some because I needed some. But, Walmart sells a 50 pack for the same price per battery.

Tell that to my PS3 controller that will no longer charge. You can get rechargeable battery packs or use alkaline or regular rechargeable batteries with the Xbox controller.


garzman80 wrote:Wait, Xbox controllers need regular batteries? They aren't just rechargeable like PS3's? I have no idea why anyone would have ever bought an Xbox. Pay for batteries, to play online, and a blu-ray player...you guys got hosed.
I bought these batteries a while back and they have worked great for me...in for more.

I too can confirm that these batteries don't work well in Xbox controllers.. They also behave strangely in some other devices.. For example, our Scrubbing Bubbles automatic shower cleaner goes crazy with them in there.. I think they have a problem delivering a constant voltage once under a load..

There is no point whatsoever in "recycling" modern alkaline batteries. They actually can't be recycled, and furthermore, do not contain dangerous components that require special disposal. Just chuck 'em in the trash when they're spent.

However, ALWAYS recycle old rechargeable batteries. They often contain dangerous chemicals that must be properly disposed of.

See, a PS3 controller is better because it apparently can hear. A few months of xbox live will get you a new PS3 controller.
I had 3 packs of these batteries last time before christmas and they all worked fine in the toys and remotes we have used them for. Can't recall having to replace any of them yet.

You know what's the worst? When you have to go around to all your other remotes because the TV remote is dead.

The dvd player takes AAA's no luck there.

The TV remote in the bedroom has no batteries in it because you stole them last time. Same with that dvd player as well.

In vain you smack the crud outta the remote in hopes you can shake loose that last bit of juice.

And that's why I bought three of these the last time.

I bought these the last time Woot offered them. Great deal! These Kodak batteries are just as good as Duracells or other major brand names.

Yea .. using cheap batteries to operate life saving equipment makes sense. Put these babies in a defibulator and you're set for life (caution low hanging fruit nearby)

Oh wise Woot owl ... How many licks DOES it take to get to the center? The world may never know.

My local Shoprite regularly sells 8-packs of these for under $2. That said, they don't last very long. Our Wii remotes will go through 2 of these every week or so.

I wish I would've checked Woot this morning, like I usually do, but I'm a slacker, so here is my rant.

Shoprite has Kodak alkaline batteries on sale dirt cheap quite frequently, I think an 8 pack for $1.49. I purchased both AA & AAA and have got to say, they are the WORST BATTERIES EVER...if they were giving them away for nothing, I'd still pass.

I have a lot of these batteries from previous woots. They work just as good as any other name brand battery. Woot sometimes sells ac Delco batteries and those are pure junk. My biggest problem with rechargables is they don't hold a charge very long. Put a rechargable flashlight in your car and its dead in a month.

Use LSD (low self-discharge) rechargeable batteries. Eneloop batteries have the best reputation of the LSD rechargeables, and I've been using them for a while. They work great, and should retain a usable charge for a long time while unused.

Most Energizer and Duracell NiMH rechargeables are not LSD batteries, and will discharge quickly whether they're used or not.

Umm I ordered a set of AA and a set of AAA it was even in 2 separate lines not just a quantity of 2 on one line. But instead I get 2 boxes in the mail today both with 3 packs of AAA's so now I have 144 AAA and no AA's! =(
