My kingdom for some batteries!

 I use rechargeable batteries and lately my stash has been dwindling.  I think Brent has been hoarding them…

I wonder what is the best deal for rechargeable AAs.  I know some brands hold a charge better than others and that some brands cost more than others but which battery is the best combo of life for cost?  Which stores give the best price?

Do YOU know?

  1. We go through batteries like crazy with our kids so rechargeables are the only way to go as you found out.
    I have tried a lot of different brands, name brand and non alike. I have only been impressed with one brand though, that is the Duracell NiMH rechargeable. They keep their charge much longer than other brands, even Energizer can’t match Duracell’s NiMH ones. Duracell sells two brands, the “pre-charged” and regular rechargable. Look on the lable for the mAh rating. Some of the AA’s are 2000 mAh (those are the pre-charged ones), some are 2500 or 2650. The higher the mAh rating, the longer the battery will run on one charge so the 2650 will play your iPod or digital camera longer.
    As for places, you need to look around since the price varies. I have found Duracell 4 AA packs for around $11-$13 at Walmart. Some places are much more expensive so keep an eye on the price.
