I am tired of spending money on Duracell that don't seem to last any longer than others.  I have a lot of decor which needs AA, C & D's 

 

Decided to try Amazon brand -- has anyone else had good luck with their brand (I've bought dollar store batteries and they worked OK)?

 

thank you

@homedecor1I have used them and believe they were about the same as other brands.

Amazon has Panasonic batteries sometimes less than Amazon Basics and they seem OK too.

i buy them by the hundreds this time of the year and the AMAZON BASICS are a good battery......and i like not having to spend duracell prices.

I have tried Amazon brand but cannot say that I was impressed.😐 I depend on Enegizer Max batteries for all of my decor function needs! Amazon currently has the best prices. Seldom am I disappointed.😊 Occasionally, I will purchase Duracell if the price is irresistible, and use them for anything else that requires batteries.👍

@homedecor1 @Duracell makes upgrade batteries that last much, much longer.

i went back and looked at my amazon history for batteries.....

 

along with the amazon basics, i have also gotten good deals on ALLMAX batteries, HAOHIYO batteries, and ACDELCO batteries.

I used to buy Sams brand they worked OK.  

 

I'm traveling this year for Christmas holiday so of course, I won't decorate as I normally do.  (I'm so happy last year I did full decorating for spouse he loved the house decorated).  Maybe just a wreath on the door and put my tree up.  I love my tree🎄

 

Therefore, I won't need a lot of batteries.
