@StevenS757 I got that they were carbon-zinc by looking at the pictures. Use your best judgement in deciding if these are an awesome deal on alkaline batteries, or maybe just a meh deal on AA-sized rocks.
Thank you for the guide. Want to check out the other batteries but here’s what it says about these:
• Carbon Zinc & Zinc Chloride batteries are very inexpensive.
• Both chemistries deliver less energy than alkalines.
• Often supply only enough power to Power On your device.
• Zbattery’s Opinion: Don’t let the name fool you. “Heavy Duty” batteries are actually “Light Duty” batteries that qualify as little more than junk. Avoid these batteries whenever possible.
I own and operate a tropical and otherwise exotic fish emporium. Some of the fish don’t exhibit the lively frolicing behaviors that some potential customers expect to see when they come to shop for amphibious accutroments. To help stimulate the display model fish, I have found that if you drop in a couple AA batteries to the tank, the fish really step up their game (temporarily). The customers like what they see and they buy! Of course the display fish eventually simmer down and are then offered up at a discount, usually for “feeders.” That’s a crowd pleaser too!
@bleedmichigan THAT, is sage advice. Of course, I must add, my story of using batteries to sell fish is completely fictionalized. I don’t own or operate a fish emporium. And, I don’t condone using batteries or any other harmful means to interact with animals. SPCA approved message.
The reporter, restrained in a barred room, faced her captor, who was just then working on improvements to the laser-guided suction device that had been key to his five joule heists. “You won’t win this time, Ray O’Vac!” she spat. “You may have your Energizer, and you can even make me enDuracell, but—“
“And who, my sensuous scribbler, can possibly stop me?” he sneered, cutting her off mid-sentence.
Suddenly the wall behind him exploded. Coughing, as the dust cleared he shouted “You! How did you find me?!”
“It was easy, you kidnapping cretin. I just followed the breeze, and sure enough, I found someone who sucks.”
Leaping into action, the rescuer pulled the cell door off its hinges, smashed the machine with it, and wrapped it around the villain in a steel embrace. “There, that should hold you till the Power City Police arrive. You won’t escape charges this time,” he said to the furious felon.
“I knew you’d find me!” the liberated literateuse cried. “And I’m going to thank you over and over… if you’re up for it, that is.”
“Miss Watt, let’s just say there’s a reason I currently go by the name… ‘Eveready’.”
Can we get clarification on whether these are Carbon-Zinc or Alkaline? The product specs say Zinc-Manganese Dioxide, which implies alkaline but the boxes in the screenshots say Carbon-Zinc. Which is it, so I can cancel my order if it’s C-Zn??
@narfcake I was thinking like you’re taking that questionable path through the haunted cemetery, you know the one with all the fog? And you’re half way through when your flashlight starts to die as it does it situations like this. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that you got a pair of batteries from that house down the street? I mean, it doesn’t help you with the guy in the hockey mask behind you with the knife but one problem at a time.
