    These are tough to review at this point because you really need to wait and see how batteries perform over the long haul. At this point all I can really say is that when I put them into things they work and the overall build quality seems fine. So far so good. I have had some cheap batteries with an outer shell that seemed to be splitting or poorly adhered but these are fine. I like the very compact packaging. I have noticed that some brands have gone to a big cardboard backer for batteries, I am assuming for display in the store purposes, but that makes them more difficult to store at home. Can't give them 5 stars now because I don't know how they will hold up. Might be unfair but that's how it goes.

    I needed batteries because I have a lot of small children which means lots of small chidlrens toys. I just wanted a large amount of batteries for the cheapest amount of money. I am not one of this people who has to have name brand everything especially on small items like batteries. Far as I'm concerned it lasts about the same as duracell. For the price I paid, you can't beat this. I am glad that they had the best buy brand in stock and if they have more sizes I will probably buy more. Folks remember, there is no difference between fruity O's and fruit loops.

    Bulk Batteries that are Bang for the Buck

    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. Thanks Best buy

    They may not last quite as long as some of the much more expensive name brand batteries but they do a very good job. I use flashlights in my job So batteries are very important to me. I have been using Insignia batteries for about three years now And will continue to use them based on the quality. Where else can you buy a large pack of batteries for less than $10 when they’re on sale. And when they are on sale, I buy a bunch!

    Good deal on batteries

    First of all, I really like the packaging. It is a lot harder to lose the box with batteries that it is to lose a piece of cardboard that I will inevitably fling somewhere and lose for the next 3 months. So far, the batteries have held up well. I mostly use them for remotes. I can't quite review how long they last because I've only been using them for a few days. I hope they will last long but even if they don't last years, I have a good amount to go through before needing to buy more.

    These batteries are every bit as good as the Big name brands, and when you get them on the Deal of the Day, they are one of the best values around. I bought a pack to use in my trail cameras, since they take 6 to 8 batteries (depending on brand) each. I was pleasantly surprised with the length of time they lasted, especially being exposed to cold temperatures. I sat the cameras out in August and in the end of November the batteries were still showing well over half life.

    I love Best Buy's name brand batteries. These batteries work just as good as the top name brand but you get soooooo much more. I used the Dynex batteries before they changed to Insignia batteries and they are just as good. These batteries work perfectly in my LED night lights and they last for 12 to 14 day stretch before I have to switch them out for new one's. Saving a lot on the electrical bill. Those little 5 watt bulbs add up every night on your ConEd bill. I buy when they're on sale for a greater amount and a greater deal. Thanks much.

    Decent alternative to Duracells

    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 these in some flashlights I have lying around the house which I use once in a month or so and in a hair trimmer. They have worked decently well for the price. They did lose their charge after about couple of times - total of about 20 minutes if I had to guess (in the trimmer). But for the price it was worth it.

    I am using these batteries for remotes, wall clocks, and gaming controllers. They are not lasting as long as some pricier brand batteries, but I feel that the discounted price provides sufficient benefit for my extra time replacing the batteries in devices. I have not had any leaks in the 3 years I've been using them. They have held their power level pretty well too.

    I use these batteries for tv remotes, children's toys, and flashlights. I've been using insignia brand batteries for years and I can say with confidence that they are dependable, have a long shelf life, and I'm fortunate to not have one leak yet. I notice the batteries don't last as long as the big name brands, but at a fraction of the cost, that's okay with me. I would definitely recommend!

    These AAA batteries are good for the price but average for their initial voltage. I have a battery tester and decided to check their voltage upon arrival. The tester almost consistently indicated below the desired voltage for new batteries. I do use a variety of batteries and brands. While other well brand Alkaline batteries have a bit higher voltage and last longer, these batteries are acceptable considering the low price.

    After my expensive 'copper top' batteries leaked and nearly destroyed my Sony camera, I decided to find a cheap alternative, 'cause paying the higher price for premium batteries didn't make sends. Purchased the large package of both Insignia AAA and AA batteries online at bestbuy.com for a really attractive price. So FAR they seem O.K. and put out the right amount of power. Don't know how long the will last but they are working good right now.

    These batteries seem to last almost as long as the name brand batteries, probably around 90% to 95% compared to the name brands. However, the amount of batteries that come in the pack and the fact that these are significantly cheaper than the name brands definitely outweighs the issue of them not lasting as long. I don’t mind switching these batteries out slightly more frequently since they’re so much cheaper.

    I was hesitant to buy these but the price was so good, I couldn’t resist myself. I can say that I am happy with the life of these batteries. The life span is shorter than Duracell but buying an equal size Duracell pack where the batteries die sitting in your closet. Eventually they work out to be the same unless you are going to use a full large pack of Duracell within 6 months of your purchase.

    I have probably purchased a thousand of these Best Buy batteries for use in our recreation centers. I have also tried every battery on the market looking for the perfect price-quality ratio and can say without a doubt that these batteries are the ones. These are the best "generic" batteries on the market and Best Buy often puts them on sale. When this happens, there is no comparison to the value gained.

    I have purchased these batteries several times when on deal of the day. So far they have been decent for generic batteries. For the most part they work well. I use a sweater shaver often and I have noticed that they do not seem to last very long in that. They are great if not for something you use consistantly, like flashlights. The shelf life is good as I have some that I purchased over 1 year ago and they work just fine.

    I use these batteries for regular use, such as touch lights, TV remotes, small remote control items. They serve its function and lasts for several months with minimal use. So far, the price is excellent per battery and you can buy a box just to keep when you need. I would definitely consider getting these and the AA batteries.

    I recommend these for everyday use. They definitely don’t have the lasting power of Duracell, but they’re half the price. I stock-up when these are “deals of the day” and they are a solid value. I wouldn’t trust these in items that I absolutely need to work, but they’re great for remotes, the kids’ toys, etc..

    4 Stars. Great price & they are alkaline, not outdated carbon zinc. They were in stock in store & available for online order and pickup. That is very convenient. Cheaper than name brand. The Best Buy store brand insignia has also never let me down, lets see if that is also for their batteries.

    Insignia is always been a great product their products are always well made and have a lot better price point no exceptions with these batteries they're not the longest lasting I've ever had but by no means as bad as generic batteries that you usually get for a cheaper price point they are worth every penny especially if you get them as a deal of the day
