Only one notch down from lithium batteries
Ever since Duracell batteries have had quality problems (leaking, sub par power, "duds" in fresh batches, and so on), Energizer alkaline and ultimate lithium batteries have taken over the top spot in my household/shop. Don't know what happened at Duracell and don't much care since the defective batteries have ruined smoke detectiors, flashlights, label lets, and several other battery operated equipment.
Batteries are not cheap, so to get the best that money can buy I choose the Energizer brand for alkaline and lithium batteries.
( I am not a paid reviewerer. I was just sick and tired of throwing out ruined equipment because of burst or leaking batteries, or batteries that were dead on arrival or with sub par energy even though still way within expiration date.)
