Thread: Which Battery Brand do you think is the best?

  1. #1
    I think Duracell is the best. I used to think Energizer was the best on my airsoft gun. Then I tried Duracell on it the Fps on the gun increased alot and lasted a long time. Or does it just depend what you use them for?

    Your airsoft has frames per seconds?

    These things sure have changed since I was 14.

    Duracell gives me longer life than Energizer or any others.

    I'm trying to get back into rechargables for AA and AAA stuff 'cuz more of them are nickel-hybrid, and they tout them as experiencing fewer mem-charge issues; I want to see Lithium-Ion make it to the standard 1.5 volt architecture.

    Then I'll use rechargables for everything.

    Duracell for regular alkalines.

    I like my energizer rechargeables though, I don't know if the duracell rechargeables last longer but it doesn't really bother me anyway since I can just recharge them.

    You're all being fooled by marketing. What makes a battery the best imo is the price to power ratio. I find that the lowest price Alcaline (brand isn't important) is the best value.

    Quite right, of course; I just can't be arsed to do a comprehensive comparo, though I've had great luck with some generics, it seems you can never find the same ones again, or they don't work as well the second time.

    Odd that the ones you get, say, with a remote control for what-have-you, seem to work for years before needing replaced.

    I will stoop to the occasional "too good to be true" deal-like 50 batteries for $3...

    I still make sure I've got some Duracells around, just in case.
