I have to say I don't purchase batteries often, it may be my generation, and it may be just the evolution of electronics now. I wish I had gaming controllers that still used them to really put these batteries to the test, those things ate batteries left 'n right with the hours I put in to those.
However, there are a few things in my home I still purchase batteries for that I need reliability for the long term. My smoke detectors and my wall clock! It's no bueno when those batteries go out. I definitively say these are going to outperform or outlast other battery brands in these devices in the 45 days I've been using them.
What I can say is my opinion on these batteries, as a consumer, money no object, I would purchase Duracell solely on my feeling that these are the top tier name brand batteries. In my 28 years of living, their marketing campaigns have ingrained this in my head and have yet to be disappointed. Call me in 10 years and I'll let you know if I've changed my mind :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I love Duracell! They last longer than any other battery I've ever tried and they make my kids toys sound louder and light up brighter! They even last longer in my t.v. remote. I received these batteries for free from Duracell for my honest review and as soon as I received them, the kids found something to use them in! I'm so glad I was able to get a couple for my t.v. remote. I will always use Duracell batteries! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I got batteries, for FREE from Duracell! I am an avid gamer and wireless controllers control my consoles, with Duracell, I'm never left handing without a charged control to battle against my foes! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I used these in my son's crib toy. So far they have been great. The lights are brighter then before. They haven't ran low yet. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
I used two of the batteries in my digital camera and another two in digital camcorder. I have used both several times since receiving the batteries and have not seen a drop in battery life yet. Other batteries I have used in the past are lucky to last two weeks [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
