I usually buy my batteries at Sam's Club because I always thought they had the best prices. I was there last Friday and remember buying a pack of Duracell "D" batteries for $12.99. However, a pack of Duracells consists of only 10 batteries, while the Sony pack of D's consists of 12 batteries for the same price.

I've used Sony batteries in the past and never had a problem. From now on I will wait for Woot to feature Sony batteries and buy my battery needs then.

I used these before, they die fast. Not worth even half the price.

So if they last half as long, it's really a 36-pk equivalent for $19.99? Even if that's true, that's like .55 cents a unit. Bargain.

So at $1.50/battery vs. $1.30/battery: woot is higher priced for sub-par batteries ( compared to Duracell) when you factor in shipping. Great to know! Now I can stop at Sams on the way home today and get a pack for less.

Sony brought us Spiderman...Spiderman has a ton of power...so in theory these should work great.

But remember, with great power comes great responsibility

Hopefully the people at Woot can send the correct type of batteries that are ordered this time around.

At $9.99, I might have been interested. But at $19.99 ($14.99, plus $5 shipping), I will pass.

Bargain by what price/quality standards? Currently Walmart.com has Duracells for 42 cents/each (Coppertop 24 pack) to 55 cents/each (Quantum Alkaline 20 pack). And that's the only place I checked. Just make sure you shop around.

I consider a good bargain price for batteries to be around 25-30 cents/each, which these Sony's are. But without being too scientific, I have noticed that these off brands (Sony, ACDelco, etc.) get burned up really fast in our Wii game remotes... where most of our AA's go. I don't know if those controllers are considered high drain or not.

I have bought these on here before and didn't notice a difference between them and Duracell. People complaining about shipping the trick is to buy more than one thing otherwise $5 on low value products is usually worse than going to to the store and buying batteries.

I've bought two batches in the last offering, sizes AA and AAA. It is convenient having them delivered to my door and it is nice to have a stockpile on hand.

I use them primarily in remote control devices where they hold up well. However I have noticed that in my Mac BT keyboard and touchpad Duracell/Energizer batteries give me much better life. My daughter uses them in her powered headphones and she also burns through them at a good rate...more so than I would expect.

So would I count on these for important applications (smoke/CO2 detectors, emergency flashlights, etc.)??? Nope. But for lightweight everyday applications they are fine.

If you're going to write a sexist description, would you mind making it equitable? Just because society has accepted the double-standard of male-bashing does not make it an ethical thing to do.

Imagine the backlash if all of the characters in your story who needed new batteries were female and all of the characters who's batteries were strong were male.

On that note, I'd be curious to know what percentage of the customers who end up purchasing this deal are male.

I like these batteries. They have long life and they know how to get the job done, plus they usually give you like a load and a half. It's usually a win-win.

I bought two boxes of the AA last time. Use them in a golf GPS device. They won't get through two rounds, while the high end competition brand (use your imagination) does and more. The price is right on these, but the word "Stamina" was thunk up by a marketing guy.

I dont know why people think these off brand batteries are gonna be any good for high or even moderate drain devices. Heck the last batch I bought here I'm still using were the AC Delco brand. Yeah, that brand inspires confidence. I dont know about your stores(including sams) but where I live even at half the length of use of a duracell or energizer these are still cheaper. I guess we are getting raped on batteries in my area. If you're needs are for cameras, bluetooth and RF wireless devices, I'd probably stick with name brand. But I've used the cheapies like these in xbox and ps3 controllers with acceptable results so I guess your mileage will vary.

Last time I purchased batteries off of Woot it was a big mistake. They had about 1/4 to no more than half the life of a fresh battery.

These babies have a lot of life in them.

AA, AAA best if used by 2024
D best if used by 2020
C, 9V best if used by 2018

So what's your idea of a GOOD battery? How about a Rayovac? Are they any good in your book?
