Battery Costs
« on: October 30, 2008, 11:16:53 AM »
After reading another thread about batteries I'd like to start a thread about battery prices. When I'm out and about I always see batteries on sale and I think "I wonder if this actually a good deal or not". So I decided that with your help we can create a list that includes things like battery size, brand, rechargable?, milliampere-hour (mAh), how many per pack, total cost, cost per battery, expiration, on sale and at what location.

For example:
Size          Brand          Rechargable (Yes,No,??)          mAh?          Number in pack          Total Cost          Individual Cost          Expiration (mm-yyyy,??)          On Sale (Yes,No,??)          Where         
AADuracelNo??20$15$.75??YesGas Station

For real:
Size          Brand          Rechargable (Yes,No,??)          mAh?          Number in pack          Total Cost          Individual Cost          Expiration (mm-yyyy,??)          On Sale (Yes,No,??)          Where         
CDuracelNo??8$4.50$0.225??YesMikes Merchandise

Hopefully this will serve as a great reference the next time you're out buying batteries. If possible I'd like to be able to edit this thread to keep it updated with current battery costs.

thanx Sqidi

It looks like they're pretty close in price,  I'd suggest that people shop both & pay attention to S/H cost & shipping times when making final decisions.

Quick price comparisons

As a matter of full disclosure,   I once placed a substancial order w/ www.batteryspace.com  & UPS delivered it to the wrong address.    Using the tracking info,  I discovered that it was delivered to a neighborhood hardware store.

I contacted both UPS & Battery space.

Long story - short.   Battery space sent a replacement order out that same day,  The hardware store gave me my package, after opening it up & seeing the contents.  (battery chargers & batteries in resale packaging)

I recontacted Battery space & told them that I now had a double order & would be sending one back.

They said to keep it as it was more hassle to restock ect. 

They'll have a satisfied customer for life
