I've been using these for some time now in various low drain devices and I kept a record of how long they lasted in comparison to the Duracell Plus batteries I was previously using. In every case this has been between 58% and 64%. Prices vary, but they seem relatively poor value when compared to Duracell.

I know that there are significant variations in the performance of different batches of batteries but this seems fairly conclusive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Low quality batteries with low lifetime 8 April 2013

Low quality batteries with low lifetime. I would step up for the slightly more expensive ones as they will last longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars no fuss bateries 20 Sep 2012
By Mr. B. W. Haynes VINE VOICE
Style Name:AAA|Verified Purchase
Easy to purchase, good value when compared against the major brands in price, capacity, and power, what is more in basic packaging that comes easily through your letterbox.
When first delivered the batteries gave a voltage of 1.62V and this was maintained over a fairly long period of storage and has only decreased slightly over a period of intermittent use. If subjected to a short period of high drain they recovered well, though this ability understandably deteriorates with continued high drain usage. I replaced batteries in three handsets, and a couple of clocks over 12 months ago, and so far none have required changing.
Indicated shelf life of my last purchase was in excess of four years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money 20 July 2011
Style Name:AA|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I tried these batteries in my camera as I have a fair idea of how long Alkaline batteries usually last in there. I was delighted to find that they lasted easily as long as I would have expected. Don't let the "basics" brand put you off. I have had a few Amazon Basics products and, by and large, they have been good value and of a good quality

I think that they represent good value for money when compared to equivalent batteries bought in a shop.

I have to agree that the packaging was over the top and this area could and should be addressed.

So, if you are worried that a "basics" branding might mean inferior quality, don't be. These batteries are definitely a good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Consider the price 10 July 2011
Style Name:AAA|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As a AAA battery, Amazon's basic range actually holds up rather well. While the box packaging was a little excessive considering there are only 20 small batteries, they were easy to remove from the plastic and keep the remaining batteries together until needed.

From the uses so far (torches and remotes), they've been pleasantly surprising as I was expecting them to run down rather quickly similar to cheap batteries. The only thing that lets them down is the price with big brands like Duracel around half the price of these - it would probably even be better going for rechargeables to make an even bigger saving. But as it is, they do their job and they do it well.

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as any other............... 20 July 2011
By Bob's Mum TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Style Name:AA|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Good value batteries from Amazon - currently being used in remote controls, hand held fans, and cameras. No problems with reliability whatsoever. Still going strong after considerable use and I would say they last on par with other comparable makes.

Good value, easy recyclable packaging, long lasting and value for money.

2.0 out of 5 stars BE CAREFUL OUT THERE... 8 Aug 2013
Style Name:AA|Verified Purchase
These batteries seem to be OK in use where only one or two are required by the product, but using six together in a Lava DAB clock radio horrified me: 48 hours after installation (radio only switched on 20 minutes in that time), the Lava indicated that the batteries required replacing. Net result? I have dug out the mains adaptor and it will remain as a permanent rather than portable installation.

I may yet speak to Amazon about the performance...

Great batteries work just as well as the major brands and Amazon have done a great job with the packaging which although environmentally friendly isnt bad at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the best...
In fact just 16 of them were ok, the rest four of them were less than 1v, lesson learnt, I prefer to pay a little more to buy branded batteries.

They are what they are and serve their purpose fine. A Pack of 20 means there is always plenty in reserve so from that point of view they are convenient
