Customer Review

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 February 2022
I’m always a little sceptical about buying batteries online, you can get old stock fobbed off on you or knock-offs. After the experience with these I’ll try to never buy batteries online again.

As far as I can tell they’re genuine Duracell, the weight and finish of them are good, the expiry date was 2031, so they seemed “fresh” too. Should have lasted for years.

I use D cells in an LED Maglite I have for the car, used infrequently, the last time I had to change the batteries was getting on for 10 years ago.

However, these lasted less than a month elapsed, the torch itself was used for less than a couple of hours with them in before going flat (testing with a multimeter gives a voltage of about 1.48v). Not sure what’s happened, but they’re being returned.

Thankfully Amazon’s return process is easy enough, but these batteries were a huge let down.
