Double A “AA” batteries are just about the most popular sized battery that most of us use, so which brand is the best for us?
In a test of two battery brands:
- Energizer Max LR6 Made in: Singapore
- Ultracell Max LR6 Made in: China
On the Electronic game 250 mA, 1 h/da test, the batteries lasted for a very similar time:
- 8.28 Hours Energizer Max
- 8.24 Hours Ultracell Max
The Energizer brand had the slight advantage, so, do we buy Energizer ?
If they are that close in quality, then it must come down to price:
The Energizer Max AA battery is available in a pack of 20 for $19.86 from Big W ($0.99 each unit)
The Ultracell Max AA battery is available in a pack of 20 for $6.99 from ALDI ($0.35 each unit)
I think I will buy mine from ALDI…
