    Very Short Life

    I put 8 brand new Insignia AA batteries in a trail camera on December 9. I went to check the pictures on the camera yesterday and the pictures stopped taking 3 days after I put them in. The batteries were dead. My son put some in his Xbox controllers and said they lasted a week. These are junk batteries- unfortunately I bought about 150 of these because it seemed like such a great sale price.

    For the past few years, I have picked up this (48) pack and the same pack in the (AAA) size. It's a great deal and the batteries perform as expected. Between the kids toys and our TV remotes flashlights, smoke detectors, etc. I can usually make it an entire year on 1 pack of these. I have never done any side by side comparison with Energizer or Duracell, but I feel these batteries get the job done and I don't notice myself burning through them any faster than I would using another brand.

    Well worth the price - So, why only 4-Stars?

    These are just what I needed for my remotes, security sensors, LED flashlights. Have bought these in the past, and, from my experience, I get more per-battery-cost in battery use and life than I have found anywhere else, for the money. So, why 4-Stars? BestBuy offers an extensive, and Great, recycling program. I just find it sad they do Not offer to recycle what they sell - i.e.: these batteries. I have to pay to safely dispose of them. Even so, still a good price for what I get. BestBuy - why not accept what you sell for recycling/disposal. I will still buy BestBuy - Just asking.

    My granddaughter convinced me to purchase this pack of AA batteries and so I did, knowing that there is always a need for AAs. I thought the quality might be significantly lower than the top brands, but I have found that there is only a small, slight difference in what I can tell from their quality. Compared with the price difference and the convenience of having AAs available, I say the this a very Good deal.

    Batteries are alright, improve shipping packaging

    These batteries are average...for the price I'm alright with it. I put four AA in my son's Christmas toy and I had to change them a couple days ago. Didn't last a month but he plays with his toy a lot. It's hard to gauge the quality just yet. The plastic box of batteries were shipped in a plastic bag so the box was broken when it arrived. Unable to use the plastic box they came in to store.

    I looked at these batteries several times at Best Buy before I bought them. One day I was at Best Buy and I saw that they were on sale. The sale price on these batteries was so low I thought surely they can't be as good as the popular brand I normally use. Was I supprised,. they lasted as long, or in one case, they lasted longer than the popular brand. I also bought a pack of the AAA batteries. They too are as good, if not better than the brand that I normally use. So, go out to Best Buy and pickup a set of these barreries, I think that you too will be pleasantly supprised.

    Decent batteries...great value (on sale)

    I like these batteries for the most part. Honestly, they are average batteries with average performance. They are a great value...when they are on sale. Otherwise, I would not pay regular price on them. I stock up when they are on 'Deal of the Day'. If you are looking for heavy duty performance, then you need to spend quite a bit more for the other brands. For your basic needs (remotes, flashlights, headlamps, etc.) then I think these are a decent option.

    Great Batteries for the Money

    No, these will not last as long as expensive batteries. However, I have purchased multiple packs and have never had a problem with dead batteries out of the package or leaking batteries. They last as long as expected in most devices. In fact, I feel they last just as long as other batteries in a remote control. You will see a lower life in a high draw device like a children's toy with lots of lights and sounds. It really comes down to how often you are willing to change the batteries on those devices to get your money's worth.

    Everything I use seems to need a battery or 4. Insignia batteries last 2 to 3 times longer than any other brand that I've tried. My battery operated candles exhaust the average battery (including some name brands) in 2-3 days where the insignia batteries will last 6-7 days & they're not that expensive. I'm not having to replace the batteries in my remote controls near often as I used to. I suggest that you try one pack of these batteries & I bet you will like them a much as i do!!!

    I normally get my batteries at Costco; Kirkland batteries are amazing. I was out of town and there was no Costco nearby so I swung by Best Buy and bought the 48 pack of Insignia AA's. I mean, they work. Not for long, but they work. Seeing as I was in a jam and they got me out of it, they aren't terrible batteries. I'm just used to the quality of Kirkland's AA's and Insignia's falls a little short. But they work, which is probably the most important thing.

    Bought these batteries while in store to purchase a few other items. My 12 year old son saw them on the shelves and reminded me I was supposed to by batteries for his nerf guns. I purchased them and now we having a bast play nerf war. The batteries charge have lasted longer than expected and the the number of batteries in the pack have allowed me to replace all the batteries through out my house that my son had removed to keep his guns firing with plenty left over for Xbox controllers, WII controller, and full armory of high tech nerf guns.

    I cannot say for sure how well these Best Buy brand (Insignia) batteries stand in comparison to other batteries as far as longevity, but the price was amazing for the quantity. I was going on a camping trip and needed extra batteries of various types, so this buy seemed perfect to reduce cost. However, the trip was cancelled, and I have barely used these. I will say that they seem to be good batteries and even if they do not last quite as long, the price point still seems untouchable...at least what I paid for these while on sale.

    They are obviously not the best batteries out there but they do come close and for the price they can't be beat. We used to use rechargeable battery packs in our Xbox One controllers but they would only last for so long before either the battery went out, the cable ends became unusable or the controller charging port gave out so we needed another option. Then, we found these batteries at Best Buy and we haven't turned back since. We also use them regularly in our tv remotes and children's toys and they seem to go pretty strong.

    When it comes to buying batteries, there are two classes. There are the junk batteries that a lot of products ship with, and there are decent batteries along the lines of Energizer and Duracell. There are many from which to choose. The differences between these are pretty minimal. Anything that's alkaline is adequate for almost every purpose. The price on these, which stand up to the Duracell Procell batteries I normally use, is considerably better. I have no reservations at all re-purchasing or recommending these.

    These batteries are a steal at the $6.99/$7.99 price for the deal of the day. They last long, although I need to test them side by side against Energizer/Duracell. But for the price I can’t complain. Whenever I see these I try to buy them because of the price. I haven’t experienced them leaking or a bad batch which is good. Overall, they have done the job well for microphones, Christmas toys, XBox One Controllers, TV remote controllers, etc.

    Average life batteries but when on sale worth it

    These batteries are not going to give you the life of some of the big name brands but at the price you can buy these on sale it's a value. I use a lot of AAA and AA batteries and I always shop for bargains because of the volume I go through in flashlights. When these batteries are on Deal of the Day I stock up becsuse buying 48 per package at like $7.99 Is a value even at the lower life. I reccomend them anytime they are on sale.

    I didn't have much expectations for this brand since it was not a reputed one (IMO) but couldn't pass on the sale price. But I have been pleasantly surprised with the quality and longevity of these batteries. I have them in both a Wii remote and also on some flashlights that I have lying around the house which I use once in a month or so. They have worked decently well for the price. They did lose their charge after about couple of times - total of about 30 minutes if I had to guess. But for the price it was worth it.

    I picked these up on sale for my mom so she can use them in an Oculus Rift for the controllers. It was cheap and there are so many and she will not need to break the bank and will be able to get hundreds of hours use out of this package. I think they were marked down to like 8.99? Super good quality and so far she has no thad to replace the 2 we put in originally, top quality for that guys!

    My LED Lamps Work Nicely

    I use the AA batteries for many things but I get most use out of this 60 pack with my LED lamps. I use them all night long in my kitchen as a night light, in three transistor radios we use everyday with bluetooth speakers attached to them (sounds great) and several flashlights and a lantern. These batteries work very well, just as well as the top name brands. But I've recently noticed that one or two of them have been weaker than the rest. I'll still buy them though as the amount you get can't be beat by anyone out there. Thanks.

    At Least As Good As Other Budget Batteries

    I've only been using these batteries for a couple of weeks now, but so far, so good. They're powering some outdoor LED holiday lights on our porch, and they're holding up like champs. Usually when I spring for budget batteries, I notice some dimming and general weirdness, especially when things get cold. It hasn't been very long, but I think these guys will do at least as well as the other cheapies I've bought in the past, and maybe better. Would definitely consider buying again when there's a sale.
