Top critical review
Waste of time. 9 out of 12 DOA.
30 June 2018
I thought that maybe the 79% of 5 Star Reviews would indicate that the latter 1/2 star reviews might have just been unlucky people.
Well, I guess I was one of those unlucky people. 9 of 12 Batteries were DOA (Dead On Arrival). Even when I refused to trust the bar on the side meant to be used to check the amount of charge left, I tried them in several large and small appliacnes ranging from a small LED Desk lamp which took 1 AA battery, to a XBOX One V2 Controller which takes 2 AA battieries, to a Electronic Music Keyboard which takes 4 AA batteries.
Apparently the product is produced by PSA Parts LTD also known as Duracell Direct as an Amazon Seller, but this product was sold directly to me by Amazon EU S.à r.l., UK Branch according to the Invoice.. I will be contacting to either get a refund or replacement as this is utterly unnaceptable. I refuse to let them take nearly 8 quid for basically giving me 3 working batteries.
First two batteries worked for 7 days of use in an XBOX One V2 Controller with around 60 Hours of total usage. It was when I went to replace the batteries which had died that I discovered one of the batteries was dead, and checking the next 8 batteries meant I concluded a total of 9 batteries were dead.
