1.0 out of 5 stars Duracell batteries not what they used to be, 27 Dec 2012
This review is from: Duracell MN1400 Plus Power C Size Batteries--Pack of 6 (Accessory)
I have used Duracell batteries for 3 decades because they never leaked and were guaranteed not to do so. However in the last 18 Months I have had Duracell batteries leak in a clock, a toy train and most recently a Wii controller. The Wii batteries where marked as good until 2018 and had only been in the controller for 6 months.

After researching this I have found many people have had Duracell batteries leak. After contacting Duracell I have also learned that they no longer guarantee their batteries against leaking.

Very disappointing given that Duracell have managed to consistently make batteries that don't leak for all these years.

But did these batteries leak? You have complained that you have had Duracell batteries that leaked in a variety of appliances but not indicated whether any of those leaked. Assumin you made a purchase, that is.

Yes those leaked. Also its negative to say I am complaining. It's a factual review to highlight the fact that you can no longer trust Duracell batteries not to leak.
People can then make a judgement as to whether they want to use them and take appropriate precautions if they do.
