I buy Arlec Alkaline batteries from Bunnings. ~$8.99 from for a 20 pack that seem to have pretty good life from my completely unscientific studies.

This is what annoys me about non-rechargeable batteries. They don't state the capacity. Would you buy a sack of flour which didn't state the weight on the bag?

We've done testing at work.
DSE - very good
Arlec - good bang for buck, I use these myself
Brand names like Panasonic, Duracell, etc. is way too expensive, but are good.

Alkaline batteries have a very high capacity. AA size is in the order of 8Ah, much more than what is available from NiMH.

Don't buy super heavy duty etc., they are the once that have acid and leaks, and have 1/3 the capacity of alkaline. If it is not alkaline, don't buy it.




You can never have enough Volvos!
