    These batteries changed my life

    I actually came into the store looking to purchase a 65 inch TV and was stopped dead in my tracks once I got to the batteries. I couldn't believe how the beautifully packaged batteries seemed to call out to me (or perhaps it was the lady Facetiming her son very loudly in the next aisle over looking for a Playstation game). I normally purchase all my batteries from the Dollar Tree as I am collector of batteries that are long past their expiration date. To make the commitment of purchasing batteries that are nearly 10x the price point of what I normally spend (not to mention also not being past the expiration date) was quite the major milestone in my retail purchase career. I ran, not walked, to the cashier and after I paid, it felt as if I floated to my car on cloud nine! I couldn't wait to get home and share my joy with my family who didn't seem as enthusiastic about the purchase as I did but were supportive nonetheless. The changes that have occurred in my life since making this purchase and using said batteries have been spectacular. I find myself no longer running to the Dollar Tree every five minutes to buy batteries which has put extra cash in my wallet thanks to gas savings! I've also noticed a change in my aura and bit more swagger in my step thanks to that bold decision to step outside my comfort zone. Thank you Energizer. Thank you Best Buy and most important, thank you America!

    Great, very long-lasting battery

    I have several outdoor weather stations that send continuous (every 3 seconds) wireless updates to an indoor receiver that is several walls and rooms away from where the signal enters straightline into the house. These batteries perform from -25 degree F to 90 degrees F and typically last for over a full year before needing to be changed. Great when the weather station is on a pole 8+ feet above the ground (no fun to change batteries in mid-winter). I actually change out after 15-months before cold weather sets in so I won't have to think about it in a cold Minnesota winter. These batteries also work great in handheld GPS receivers used for hiking (don't want it to quit out on the trail with kids) and geocaching, as well as for many motorized devices that use AAs. Very impressed with the long life of these batteries.

    Life Changing Batteries

    These batteries are life changers ! They must be made from some kind of alien technology that has been kept secret in desert labs ! I am a little disappointed that I did not see the little pink rabbit playing the drum but instead had to settle for my usual companion, Jake the purple emu. Seriously, that emu is with me all the time now... at least I think he is. Jake was with me when I bought these life changing batteries. It got some stares from other shoppers talking to an emu, I can tell you. One lady told me , "you need help". I thanked her politely and told her, "no thank you nice lady, I found the batteries". She wanted to get the manager involved, such a nice lady to be so helpful.

    I shoot reality television for a living and capturing good audio is extremely important. Wireless mics eat up normal alkaline batteries and having them die every few hours is a pain. It can really cost you some great soundbites. A friend told me about "the really expensive Energizers" and I tried them out. They blew my mind. I can get approximately 20-30 hours of continuous use in my wireless mics, and that's a very conservative estimate. They are expensive in my opinion, but I've actually had a 4 pack of lithium AA's outlast a 20 pack of standard AA's shooting in the same conditions for the same amount of time. In the long run you're spending the same amount of money if you buy a large pack of AA's, but the reliability and long life make Energizer Lithium AA's well worth the price.

    I wouldn't buy these for everything due to the price premium, but I do use them to power an outdoor temperature sensor and a small flashlight I keep in the car. Both are exposed to frigid temps in New England winters, where I find the lithium batteries do much better than traditional alkalines. "Regular" (alkaline) batteries tended to leak or just run out of power quickly in sub-freezing temps, but lithium hasn't been affected much at all. For what it's worth, they're also a good deal lighter than alkalines (and less than half the weight of NiMH rechargeables), which I could see being a consideration for say, serious backpackers or situations where an ounce would make a difference.

    Energizer - Ultimate Lithium AA Batteries (8-Pack) World's longest lasting AA batteries in high-tech devices. Up to 15 years of shelf life. Performs in extreme temperatures from -40° to 140°F. Energizer ultimate lithium double a batteries are the best batteries that I've ever purchased at Lake to last a very long time so I highly recommend and require you purchase these batteries if you truly need for your batteries to last a lot longer but be ready to spend a little bit more than usual but thankfully Best Buy has credit cards in case you don't have the extra cash on hand

    For Blink XT Cameras

    These work; however i'm rating these as 3 stars given they're officially recommended by Blink for 2 years of usage - but my initial set of Energizer Ultimate batteries only lasted about 6 months. The settings on my camera are set to lower sensitivity and 5 seconds of recording, and I've set the scanable area to just a door - so rarely triggers. Hoping the initial pair was a fluke, and that the ones I purchased from Best Buy last longer. Would only recommend because these are the recommended brand by Blink.

    I purchased the pair of AA Energizer advanced lithium batteries for my needs. Both checked 1.71 DC volts well over the average rating. I have had the same model older AA lithium in my small home weather station for six years. They checked 1.56 DC volts that's better then the normal alkaline are new. I put them back in and will check next year the voltage conditions.

    Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA8

    I purchased the 8 pack because the manufacturer claims a shelf life of 20 years. I need these batteries for the indoor unit of a 915 Mhz Lacrosse weather station. Regular 1.5 volt alkaline batteries are not strong enough for this unit whereas the Energizer lithium batteries work fine at 1.79 volts. Manufacturer claims that these batteries are good from -40 to +140 degrees Fahrenheit. One disadvantage is that this type of battery is not accepted by some recyclers. The Best Buy price for this 8-pack was one of the lowest that I found.

    These batteries are long-lasting, reliable, very light and inexpensive. I have been very satisfied with the performance of these batteries. I'll be honest, I was leery of these when I purchased them. I didn't want to be caught battery-less so I purchased two packages. (One pack to carry for back-ups.) As a Mom, I use my Nikon L830 on a daily basis and after several months, I am still on the first set of batteries. The second package remains unopened. I will continue to carry them around with me though! These are well worth the money and highly recommended. Once you go lithium, you won't go back.

    Only option for powerful digital cameras

    I have an awesome digital camera. I travel internationally a lot so cameras with the charge battery just don't cut it because of the power converter issue. Thus, I've always preferred cameras with AA batteries because even if they die, you can usually find replacements anywhere. However, if you pop in fresh lithium batteries like these before your trip, you won't need to. I was going through normal AA batteries about every 100 pictures or so. I'm well over 500 pictures on these lithium batteries with no sign of low battery anywhere! Definitely worth the extra cost!

    Long life, high current

    First, when choosing AA batteries, remember that the chemiistry--e.g., alkaline, nickle metal hydride, Lithium--affects the battery voltage and the way that current can be drawn, and thus what kinds of devices the battery is suited for. A Google search will explain that. If your device needs Lithium batteries, these are dependable and high quality. Never risk a fire or damage to your device by choosing poor quality cheap batteries, the risk isn't worth the price difference.

    Best cold weather battery.

    I've used these before in my outside sensor for my weather station. Regular batteries will freeze and quit working when the temperature drops down below zero F. I've recorded minus 23 degrees F on my weather station without these batteries failing. I have since bought these to put in clocks and lights in my unheated garage, and they keep on working. They are more expensive than alkaline batteries, but if you need them to perform in extreme temperatures, they are well worth it!

    I took my time to really think these were worth buying the past couple years. They are now more cost effective I still will use the standard AA in many other areas. But this is my first and only choice for cold weather usage. My trail cameras and outdoor weather sensitive equipment is such an important factor. The bottom line is lithium batteries are truly superior, performance voltage last so much longer!

    Long Shelf Life, Ample Power

    The manufacturer of my camera equipment rates Lithium batteries as producing 50% more power compared to Alkaline cells. This difference shows especially when used in electronic flashes. But Lithium batteries also excel in devices that put a sudden, high demand on amperage. Online discussion forums for digital cameras often name the Energizer Lithium batteries as being the best of the best. You are paying more because you demand reliability, but in the end you save because they don't need replacement as often as other brands.

    The Energizer Lithium batteries are a great product. Some of my electronic devices will not perform properly with alkaline batteries but work fine with these lithium ones. Also, the Energizer guarantee means something unlike that of a competitor company. Recently, I had an Energizer product that leaked prior to the expiration date printed on the battery. The leak damaged the device it was being used in. Energizer replaced that device with a new one.

    Great Batteries for Electronics

    My wife & I use these batteries in all of our electronic devices (including remote controls, etc.). They are more costly, sure, but they last longer than all other batteries that we’ve tried. I put a 4-pack of AAs in my August Lock well over a year ago and haven’t had to change them yet. Worth the extra cost for smart home products & other electronics - even those that don’t get used often.

    I recently had to replace the batteries in my Nest carbon protect monitor and just threw in regular AA batteries. Within 2 days they were dead! After further reading, Nest recommends to only put in the ultimate AA's as it could cause damage to the product. These batteries have been in now for over a month and still at full charge. The original set lasted me over 2 years as well. Worth the extra few bucks

    Hello, Bought there batteries for my Canon external speedlite and they are working great. The reason I chose these particular batteries because there is a significant weight difference when compared to the other types of batteries that were available. When operating a mid-sized DSLR (5D series) and Canon's heavier L series lenses, purchasing lighter batteries was a plus. I've also use these batteries in my wireless mouse and keyboard for about 6 months now on the same set.

    I have to buy these batteries for my security system video system as it needs a lot of charge to work and these batteries provide that charge. I have tried using regular alkaline batteries and the system does not recognize them and won't work. These batteries last me for 6-months and so they are worth the price and peace of mind.
