    Great batteries for the price.

    Our kids have RC cars that use AA batteries. As you can imagine, they seem to go through them really quickly. We tried rechargeable batteries but they just don’t seem to hold up as well as traditional disposable batteries. These are working great so far. Best of all, these occasionally go on sale for nearly 50% off. With the amount that you get in these 48 packs, you can usually afford to wait for another sale on these before you’re out of batteries. I can’t tell any difference between these and any name-brand batteries. I’m sure you can get better batteries but at the price these are occasionally offered at, it can’t be worth the premium.

    When BB marks these batteries down, at least once or twice a year I buy a box of the double AA's, triple AAA's, or the combination carton (contains a few C's, D's, a 9-volt, some AA's, some AAA's). Same review I wrote for these same batteries in the AA size: Simply put, when BB marks these down for a deal of the day, it's a great buy - stocking my closets and pantry with reliable batteries is always needed. I have gadgets all over the house, and a 16 month old daughter with MANY baby/kids toys, all of which require batteries regularly. These batteries last as long as Die-Hard, Energizer, and Amazon Basics and the packaging is sturdy and easy to open.

    My mini-rant is that they have the technology to put about 10 times as much juice in batteries, but they don't seem interested in doing that because they won't sell as many that way. Talk about adding to the landfills. So, until they do something to improve the life of batteries (beyond charging twice as much for batteries that only last 1.25-1.5 times longer), I am going with the cheaper brands that seem to do the job. These are as good as any Duracell or Energizer and are about 1/4 the price when purchased on sale. Don't give these name brands yahoos the satisfaction of paying 4X as much just because they market more. These batteries are a great deal (when on sale). Even a great deal when not, but I recommend stocking up when they are available as a daily deal.

    This is my first time buying batteries in bulk and am very glad I did so. It has come in so handy when my remotes needed new batteries and more recently, the batteries saved the day when my grandsons were visiting and needed batteries for their toys. It was such a relief to have extra batteries on hand which literally saved the day when the boys needed the batteries for their electronics. I will continue to buy in bulk for that reason again. Also, it saves a lot of money to buy them this way. I highly recommend it.

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

    These are terrific batteries! I got these at a clearance sale, so I thought a year maybe two before they expire? Expiration is April 2022. I think I can use up these batteries in five years time. I've tried bargain batteries before. The biggest problem is the number of dead batteries in the batch. Sometimes it's as high as 1 out of 5. I've used about a dozen so far and no duds yet. Other times, bargain batteries don't fit correctly. Nope, no problems there. The devices all operate at full power as far as I can tell. It looks like they will live up to their stellar reviews.

    Once Best Buy started selling these Insignia batteries in this much quantity at such a bargain price I had to purchase them. I've never tested them against other brands like Duracell or Energizer batteries. But these seem to hold their own. And at this price even if they are just a little weaker than the other brands I have no reason to hesitate swapping them out and dropping in a new set with plenty more batteries to spare.

    These batteries work just as good, maybe better, than the high priced national brands. Don't waste your money on those if you have a household like we do. A couple of console game controllers, bluetooth portable speakers in the kitchen, out back, in the garage. Probably 2 remote controls in each room that has a tv in it. I've bought the AA and the AAA on sale and each time kicked myself for not buying more.

    Best Buy has Insignia AAA Batteries (48-Pack) on sale just in time for all those Holiday toys and lights that we all seem to run out of at this time of year. I look forward every year when Best Buy runs the sales on the Insignia AA & AAA batteries, and stock up when the sales are here. This means I'll have plenty on hand when I need them. I have had good luck with the Insignia line of batteries in everything from my remotes to my lights lasting just as long as those overpriced big name brands.

    These batteries are really good batteries . I have candles that needs batteries all the time so when i see these on sale I buy a lot of them. The price is great and they last just as long as the Other name batteries never had a problem with them I buy these all the time . Like I said when on sale I buy a lot of different sizes because batteries are expensive and the price you put these on sale for and how many you can get in a box is worth it. Thank you again happy customer as always. No complaints.

    Unbeatable batteries for price

    You cannot find a better value on batteries than the Insignia from Best Buy. I have purchased all types but especially the AAA. This is probably the 50th order for these batteries I have placed (I work in a rec center) and they always ship fast and last as long as the expensive name brand batteries. If you are patient enough, Best Buy will often discount these by 40-50% every few months and if you catch that deal you cannot pass up the price.

    Alkaline Batteries Just As Good

    AAA batteries seem to be a way of life in our house. Remotes, toys, calculators are always being used. These batteries are a great alternative to the more expensive batteries. As I've always read as long the batteries are alkaline, it doesn't matter who makes them. Also, the packaging for the batteries is great because it makes it easy to keep together.

    I decided to try these batteries since I have liked other Insignia products I have purchased from Best Buy. They did not disappoint. These are just as good as the certain big name brands we are used to buying, but without the high price. Even the young man at the checkout commented how much he liked using them. I would recommend them to anyone looking to save some money and still have a good quality battery.

    This is a time when it is almost mandatory to have a supply of alkaline batteries to power the many electronic devices that accumulate in our lives. A year ago I saw these batteries on sale at a price that was significantly lower than most anywhere else I could purchase them in store. Now that I have been using them for a year I can that they are of very good quality, and I would not hesitate to buy them again (when I run out of them in a few years)!

    Long Lasting Battery

    I purchased these mainly for my girlfriends fancy LED color changing candles. Those candles can eat up some cheap batteries quick. The Insigna AAA battery holds it own against these heavy draw electronics. I used a few in some small flashlights and remotes. I really liked the plastic container they are packaged in. Very easy to get the batteries out and keeps them neatly and safely stored. I am very satisfied with this purchase. Thanks Best Buy for the low clearance price!

    A consumer magazine said the best battery per type (alkaline, etc) is the cheapest one because all batteries are essentially the same. The rest is packaging and advertising. I have followed this and purchased batteries in bulk to get the lowest price. I usually share with family and friends, so 48 batteries is good. Also, if I end up wasting a few, I will still come out way ahead overall. I've seen 8 pack name batteries in stores for the same price as these 48 were. The batteries are very good too.

    The MSRP for these is $14.99 which, for a pack of 48, is pretty good! However, you can frequently find these on sale for as low as $7.99! It's ridiculous! These last well, and actually come in their own plastic container, so you don't need to find a box to store them all in. However, do be careful if you have these shipped to you. Mine came in a bubble mailer, so the plastic did end up breaking and the batteries scattered as soon as I opened the envelope!

    Although I love and adore rechargeable eneloop batteries, sometimes you can get a deal that you cannot ignore for everyday or common usage. These are fairly long lasting alkaline batteries and I got 48 of them for 6.99, where and how have you ever seen batteries cheaper than that? You haven't. Go check out at the grocery store and pay 5 dollars for a pack of 4 energizers. No thanks. Great and amazing deal, highly recommended for all kinds of electronics, mainly remote controls and PC mice.

    The dates on mine will have these all used up before they might expire. We tend to go through batteries so I tried rechargeable ones but found that they didn't last as long or power all of our devices as well so we switched back for those that needed better performance. These store brand from Best Buy have worked well for us lasting as long as major brands and as and BB has been kind enough to put this larger package of them on sale from time to time they are very affordable.

    Fantastic Batteries

    These are great batteries and I have never had a bad one. I tried the Kirkland Batteries from Costco with poor results so I was skeptical. That being said I have had several Duracell's leak and burst in devices I don't use often like flashlights and two way hand held radios. I have been buying the Insignia Batteries for about 3 years and I don't have any complaints, they last and I've never had one leak during inactivity. When they go on sale from time to time I stock up.
