There are only two things I expect from a battery - that it lasts well and that it doesn't leak.
In the last year, I've had two sets of Duracell AA batteries leak while installed in appliances. On the second occasion the device was ruined. The batteries were all bought from reputable stores and were well within their expiry dates.
I'd been buying Duracell precisely because I assumed that as a premium brand they were less susceptible to this sort of problem. From now on, I'm avoiding this brand and keeping a close eye on all the Duracells I've already bought.
